This Morning viewers have blasted a parrot owner after she revealed she would be clipping the animal's wing to prevent her from escaping.

A year ago, Sandra Hannah went viral on social media after she wandered the streets of Liverpool desperately looking for her pet parrot Chanel after it disappeared.

After Chanel was returned to her, emotional Sandra appeared on This Morning on Monday to reveal her beloved bird has gone missing yet again.

However, the 41 year old offered a triumphant update on Tuesday when she told hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes that she had been reunited with her pet.


The joy was short-lived as Eamonn asked her: "What are we going to do to make sure Chanel doesn't escape again?"

Immediately Sandra replied: "She's getting her wings clipped."

"What does that mean? Does that mean she can't fly at all?" Ruth asked, looking concerned.

Sandra said: "Nope, she won't be able to fly at all.

She turned to the parrot and said: "It's your own fault! It's for her own safety and my health."

Not convinced, Ruth asked: "And that's safe to do, is it?" to which Sandra said it was, explaining: "They grow back and then we'll probably have to do it again."

Ruth replied: "I didn't know that you could do that."

Talk show host Ruth wasn't alone in her concerns as fuming viewers slammed Sandra for planning to clip Chanel's wings.

One person tweeted: "Now she wants to clip the bird's wings too. Great. I hope the RSPCA inspector broke in straight after the interview and gave her what for! #ThisMorning."

Another echoed: "Disgusting to think that instead of shutting a window she's going to clip the parrot's wings. The poor bird should be allowed to fly around #ThisMorning #chanel #parrot."

A third echoed: "Wow.. bird owner of the year. The bird goes missing and she gets it's wings clipped. Wow. #thismorning.
