A Family’s Fight for Their Beloved Magpie Molly

In an extraordinary tale that has captured the hearts of thousands, the story of Molly the magpie represents a unique bond that transcends species.

Molly was not just any bird; she was a cherished member of a loving family, raised alongside two Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

Despite being a wild bird, Molly chose to spend her days with her human and canine family, displaying the incredible ability of wildlife to form deep connections with humans.

Her freedom was paramount, often embarking on short journeys only to return to the family by her own will.

However, this harmonious existence was disrupted when a small group, led by an individual previously in conflict with the family, persuaded the wildlife department to intervene.

Molly was caged, a decision fueled by bureaucratic motives rather than welfare concerns, snatching away a bird that had always been free to choose her companions.

This sparked an outpouring of support for the family’s quest to bring Molly home.

Recognizing the need to navigate through the complexities of wildlife care regulations, the family is now striving to obtain a license for caring for wild animals.

Dreams Do Come True

The overwhelming support from the community, fueled by thousands of messages, calls, and signatures, has highlighted the collective desire for a resolution that respects both Molly’s welfare and the family’s bond.

As the family engages with the Department of Environment and Science (DESI) to chart the path forward, they remain hopeful, bolstered by the support of QLD Premier Steven Miles and the global community.

It exemplifies the power of community and the enduring spirit of love across species. As we await Molly’s return, we are reminded of the remarkable achievements possible when we come together for a cause that touches our hearts.

Our hearts are full of happiness after talking to the Premier yesterday.We want to thank QLD PREMIER

Steven Miles for showing unity & humanity in taking this issue on .

We will be speaking to the dept ( DESI ) today to finalise the next steps to bringing Molly home ❤️

Edda Reynolds

Edda's journey into pet ownership began with a rescue dog that was deeply fearful of humans. To better support her first dog, Edda immersed herself in Canine Behavior Psychology. When her cherished companion passed away at 16, she chose to adopt a Pit Bull mix from a shelter. This new dog, Toffee, was not only affectionate towards people but also showed a keen aptitude for dog agility. Toffee introduced Edda to the strength and gentleness of Pit Bull-type breeds, sparking a deep love for them. This led Edda to welcome Runa, a Blue Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy, into her family, providing Toffee with an ideal companion for play and companionship.
