In one such act of kindness, a person bought birds from a seller to set them free.

An Instagram user said that not all such birds can survive in the open as they may be exotic. “Birds that grow up in captivity cannot take care of themselves. They don’t know how to defend themselves, they don’t know how to find food, they don’t know many tactics of surviving,” the user said, in an attempt to drive his point home.
On the other hand, some Tweeple, calling it a scam, mentioned that these are trained birds and they come back to their seller.
