It's not dead; it's pining for Mt. Hermon.

An indignant Israeli is suing a pet shop that he says sold him a dying parrot, reports the Ma'ariv newspaper.

Itzik Simowitz of Be'ersheva contends the shop cheated him because the cockatoo not only failed to utter a word when he got it home, but was also extremely ill. Simowitz adds that the shop owner assured him the parrot was not ill but merely needed time to adjust to its new environment.
