Feeding question

I have an amazon that is not feeding. I recieved ti via air a week or so ago and it has refused live and frozen thawd. The tmeps in its cage are fine, humidity also. It was previously fed frozen thawed, but it is a wild caught so i figured it would take live mice but all it does is strike at them in a defensive mannor. Are tehy more willing to eat if you put them confined in a smaller container like colubrids and such? I'v tried feeding at night and day. It still seems to be drinking water and defecating. It has some weird breathing going on too so I'm not sure if it has an RI, i guess it could just be hissing but I'v kept snakes for awhile, however not ATB's.
