Quentin Tarantino Files Lawsuit Against Alan Ball And His Pet Macaws

Quentin Tarantino is known for directing badass films like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and Inglourious Basterds, so it seems a little odd that the dude’s feathers are getting ruffled over a couple of parrots.

The Academy Award winner is suing his neighbor, writer Alan Ball, because the True Blood creator’s pet macaws have allegedly been keeping him from getting work done…

Legal papers filed by Tarantino yesterday at the Los Angeles Superior Court stated, “On a daily basis Defendants’ Macaws, large tropical birds known for their loud squawks and screams, are placed in an outdoor aviary where they emit blood-curdling screams at random intervals for seven to eight hours. Mr. Tarantino and others in his home are subjected to the Macaws’ obnoxious pterodactyl-like screams, which have seriously disrupted Mr. Tarantino’s ability to work as a writer in his home.”

Seriously? Seriously.

The lawsuit claims that problems with the pets began in late 2009, when Ball and his partner, Peter Macdissi, agreed to look into building a soundproof outdoor structure for their pets. Apparently that never came to pass, forcing the 47-year-old Tarantino to take action.

Personally, I think this is a little ridiculous considering that macaws make noise (like any other animal, or child for that matter), what say you all?

Collaborating with animal exploiters won’t help animals

The two sides claim to both have the “health and well-being of animals” in mind in this partnership, but one likely said “after profitability” under their breath.

Exploitation for art is no worse than exploitation for dinner

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.
