Song Min Ho introduces viewers to his endangered parrot Chippi on 'I Live Alone'

AKP STAFF

On the January 28 broadcast of MBC's 'I Live Alone', WINNER's Song Min Ho revealed his brand new house to viewers for the first time ever!

On this day, Song Min Ho took the opportunity to introduce viewers to his pet parrot, Chippi. According to the singer, "It is a nationally endangered species, and so registration is required before you can raise it." 

Song Min Ho further went on to boast that Chippi has the intellectual ability of a 3-year old, and is able to say "Hello" or laugh along with him. However, when he attempted to demonstrate Chippi's talents in front of the camera, the bird showed now response. Eventually, when Song Min Ho continued to repeat "Hello?" over and over, the bird answered him by pooping on the dining table! The singer commented, "He must not be in his best condition today."

Later on, Song Min Ho went about his day by taking frequent naps throughout his house, and then working on some paintings in his studio in the evening. When asked why he takes so many naps, Song Min Ho simply answered, "I used to only sleep about 4 hours a day because of my busy schedules." Hearing this, fellow guest panelist Code Kunst remarked, "He must be going through withdrawals." 

Check out some clips of Song Min Ho as this week's guest on 'I Live Alone', above and below!

If it's an endangered species, no one should own it as a pet. It should be in a humane breeding program working to get the species out of the "endanger" category.

I mean I definitely find it weird that acknowledging something is endangered but keeping it as a pet is well...weird. But if we want to keep it a buck more and more animals will become endangered due to deforestation, overhunting, sportshunting, pollution etc. Everything comes back to the greed and overpopulation of humans. You can't say something should be free in its natural habitat, while simultaneously and continuously tearing down its natural habitat. They really have no wear else to go. Thats why all of these insects and other pests are invading homes more and more as well.
