Cee Lo Green has been advised not to get his cockatoo out on The Voice US.
The 'El Dorado Sunrise (Super Chicken)' hitmaker announced plans to replace his cat with his Moluccan cockatoo Lady for the show's third season, which Monica Engrebretson from the animal rights organisation Born Free thinks is a bad idea.
"Moluccan cockatoos are beautiful, intelligent animals but they are very challenging to care for especially in the long term, and are prone to considerable welfare problems," she told TMZ. "Many Moluccan cockatoos develop self-destructive behavior including feather plucking and self mutilation not known to occur in the wild."
"I encourage The Voice to reconsider featuring a moluccan cockatoo or any bird as a 'pet' on the show and instead promote a more appropriate companion animal such as a dog," she concluded.
