: "San Diego-based Petco has agreed to stop selling large birds to end a two-year boycott against the pet supply store by animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
Petco, the nation's second-largest pet supply company, said it will no longer sell birds such as African gray parrots, cockatoos and macaws once those currently in stock are sold.
The company also will expand its animal adoption-assistance program to include birds and other exotic animals in addition to cats and dogs. The program works with animal shelters in store communities to encourage people to consider adopting homeless animals rather than purchasing them.
PETA, in turn, will end its high-profile campaign against the company, which included a boycott, protests at Petco stores and a shareholder resolution condemning the sale of animals, among other measures."
