In a statement, the Secretariat of Public Safety and Protection reported that the events occurred in the area of discharge; place where national guards agents heard noises coming from a wooden box with holes on it; reason why they decided to inspect the box.
When they opened the box, they observed that it was a green bird and when verifying the documentation, they found several inconsistencies.
The National Guard immediately reported the finding to personnel of the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa); who reviewed the specimen and determined that it is a “Guacamaya Verde” green macaw (Ara Militaris), an endangered species subject to special protection, in accordance with the official norm NOM-059-SEMARNAT-2010.
