Parrots are one of the most amazing animals because of their ability to mimic human speaking ability. But, would you still love these birds if they start cursing and swearing at you?
An English wildlife park had no choice but to remove a group of parrots after they began swearing at the guests. On Aug. 15, the Lincolnshire Wildlife park adopted the five parrots, which were believed to have quarantined together in the same room and apparently taught each other to speak bad words.
"Every now and then, you'll get one that swears, and it's always funny. We always find it very comical when they do swear at you," said Steve Nichols, the park's chief executive.
He added that the wildlife park's employees could not help but smile while the animals cursed the visitors, explaining that their laughing might have encouraged the birds to continue swearing.
Although it should not be an issue, Nichols said it became one after the birds learned to laugh and encourage other parrots to curse. The park had no choice but to keep them away from guests' sights.
However, when they were put back, their swearing resumed. In just 20 minutes of being on display, the parrots began cursing the visitors again and had directed obscene language at a group of people.
The foul-mouthed parrots still brought light-heartedness to the wildlife park
Although the parrots cursing could have offended some guests, Nichols said that the animals had brought some light-heartedness to the park, especially during the ongoing pandemic. The Lincolnshire Wildlife Park also has other parrots with unique abilities.
Earlier in September, Chico, the singing parrot, gained the attention of the park's visitors. The video of the birds singing "If I Were a Boy" went viral.
The park's chief executive said that Chico's previous owner had been a Beyonce fan. He also said that the parrot could also sing other songs, such as those of Lady Gaga, Queen, and Gnarls Barkley.
He added that the park was already visited because of the singing bird, and now people want to see the place to here obscene language.
