OMG I did not kill the birds myself people. Please stop harassing me! I did everything I could reasonably do. The birds were not wild so freeing them would have caused more problems, and I have since learned that 7 birds were infact freed and will now starve to death in the venue or be shot so as to not have a horrible slow death as they are uncatchable. I've been told their handler is very very upset by what has happened. I was interviewed by The Sydney Morning Herald (OK it seems it was the Daily Telegraph, oops) but I'm not sure if there has been any article in the paper yet but hopefully there is so that more people find out about what happened (There has its in the Daily Telegraph). That was all I was trying to do, get it out there so you all know how ksubi condone cruelty to animals. It was almost like I was these poor creatures voice.
And YES I myself have made a complaint to the RSPCA but am yet to hear back from them. I have no clue what you all think I could have done, its kind of ridiculous the hate mail I am receiving.
I wanted to link to some horrible photos of hipsters getting inside the net and holding the birds like toy guns and frightening them for fun, but the website is down that has those shots, when its up I will link to it.
What upset me the most was everyone else's blase response to what was happening. I was pointing out the birds and trying to get people to try and help but everyone ignored me. (Well not everyone, some friends were concerned too).
Seriously I DID everything I could do in the situation. AND yes I am going to stick by what I said about the night being the best night of my life. Imagine seeing friends you haven't seen in years and having them perform like they have never performed before. It was amazing, exactly like being back in Tokyo in 2006. It had nothing to do with the "celebs" or the "cool factor" and everything to do with my friends being amazing lovely people. I don't buy into that shit at all, I just go along where my friends are.
I am such a strong vegetarian that if Henry has eaten meat I wont kiss him (for like a week at least) so believe me when I say this really upset me!
