It can be easy to teach a pet parrot how to talk, but choose those words carefully.
A British zoo just found that out the hard way. It had to remove five parrots, it took in during the quarantine, because they were swearing in front of visitors. Seems the parrots were taken in by different owners in the same week, so they all went into quarantine together before going on display.
They apparently taught each other their favorite curse words during that time. The birds are now in a lovely off-shore sanctuary until they clean up their language.
The zoo’s CEO admits park employees “always find it very comical when they do swear at you.”
