For her crimes, Fleiss served 20 months behind bars at Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California.

What happened to Heidi's parrot?

In January 2022, Fleiss claimed someone injured one of her macaws right before Christmas of the previous year.

The parrot was shot in the leg with a pellet gun.

Fleiss offered $5,000 for information that may help find and arrest the culprit.

“I want to castrate him, I want them to get the death penalty for shooting my little Chuey, who was just flying around doing nothing — and they shoot her,” she told the Pahrump Valley Times.

She has been a Pahrump resident for nearly 15 years and is making the decision to move from Nevada as a result of the incident.

At the time, Fleiss said she intended to leave Nevada for Missouri and is planning to relocate her exotic bird rescue sanctuary.
