ZOO Removes ‘Swearing Parrots’ after Complaints from the Public!
Lincolnshire Wildlife Park in the UK was forced to move the ‘rude’ birds to an ‘offshore’ enclosure and out of earshot of patrons.
A group of African Grey parrots at the zoo were removed after repeating obscene language at visitors. Just like the cheap battery-powered toys that kids have for presents, the ‘feathered foul-mouthed flock of Parakeets’ were so rude they even had the keepers red-faced!
Some patrons thought it was hilarious but many others didn’t, especially some parents who couldn’t believe their ears after holding their kids to ‘look at the pretty birds’ only to receive a barrage of four-letter words from the badly behaved birds!
Lincolnshire Wildlife Park received the five African grey back in August and quarantined them together in the same room. However, being in proximity seemed to have brought out the worst in the birds. One keeper, wishing to remain anonymous said: “It wasn’t me! After a few days the birds suddenly and without warning started calling me a w***** ! – I couldn’t believe it until they said it again, and again… and again!”
“The other keepers were giggling away until they witnessed it themselves. The ‘choir’ screamed at them as they entered the enclosure at feeding time – it’s like someone had spent all night teaching them expletives! We knew we couldn’t leave in them in full view and earshot of the public – they even swore at us when we were moving them.”
“But, just by coincidence, we took in five in the same week and because they were all quarantined together it meant that one room was just full of swearing birds,” chief executive officer Steve Nichols said. “The park employees always find it very comical when they do swear at you. The more they swear the more you usually laugh which then triggers them to swear again,” he added.
When asked about their new exiled environment, one of the birds said, ** **** ******! I take it they are not too happy.
