BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A Great Falls man who lost his macaw in a divorce about five years ago has been reunited with the bird, thanks to an observant friend.
Mike Taylor picked up the bird he calls "Love Love" at Montana's Parrot & Exotic Bird Sanctuary in Butte on Sunday.
After a friend of his earlier spotted the bird there, Taylor called sanctuary founder Lori McAlexander and said it was his. Taylor knew things about the bird that only he could have known - like it was blind in one eye and said "love love."
McAlexander says the bird was surrendered after it bit a woman so hard she required medical attention.
Taylor says he initially got the bird after it was rescued from a woman who reportedly beat it with a broom.
