But as it turns out, the bird -- whom he nicknamed "Love Love" -- wasn't Taylor's after all. An official from Montana's Parrot & Exotic Bird Sanctuary took back the parrot after speaking with Taylor's estranged wife Belinda "Linda" Carillo.
According to the Great Falls Tribune, the sanctuary's executive director, Lori McAlexander, learned that the former couple had gotten married five years ago in April 2008, which was around the same time the bird arrived at the sanctuary, meaning the bird with which Taylor was reunited couldn't possibly be "Love Love." The real "Love Love" was given away by Carillo after the couple split.
But not all pet reunions have such sad endings. In February 2013, divorcee Jamie Carpentier was reunited with his dog -- a basset hound named Ginger -- after more than a decade apart. He saw the description for a 13-year-old basset hound online, visited the shelter soon after, and immediately knew it was, indeed, his long-lost pal.
