Pandemonium of parrots love swearing at visitors so much they have to be separated at zoo
They don’t seem to be able to stop. As soon as one starts, they all join in. 🦜😂

Everyone knows that when it comes to kids’ favorite places to go, zoos are at the top of the list.

Between the lions, the monkeys, the bears, and the elephants, there’s no shortage of incredible sights to see.

But sometimes some exhibits are more entertaining than others.

And these parrots steal the show.

While most animals are cute and quiet as kids go by to see them, there are also instances where these animals become unfit examples from which young children may get ideas.

Unfortunately, these birds are “bad apples”.

Five parrots were removed for swearing.

Yes, you read it right. A London zoo had to remove this pandemonium of parrots for swearing at each other like no tomorrow and setting a bad example for little children passing by.

Seem a little harsh? Well, just wait.

At first, parrots who talk are cute and adorable. Swearing can be entertaining as well, but this type of behavior is normally regulated to just a few instances.

What used to be cute and funny turned into an all-out war between these foul-mouthed birds, however.

Listening to birds talk like humans can be such a fun experience, especially for little children who are not yet aware that parrots can also speak with proper training.

But, when these birds started speaking the bad language directed to the guests, suddenly they are not so cute anymore.

Yes, they cursed at guests, too.

No one is safe from the potty-mouthed insults being hurled by these feathery foes.

Some people find it funny to hear swearing from the birds, but this is definitely not a good thing when it comes to young guests. So, how did the zoo handle the ruckus?

The wildlife park took action.

They did so in the best way they knew how – by removing five instigating culprits from public view.

After evaluation and to save parents from having to reverse the effects of the excessive swearing they would hear, the wildlife park decided to finally separate the birds both from each other and from the public display as well.

They set each other off.

They just can’t help it, so the management placed the birds in different areas of the park so they won’t have to see each other and be tempted tp start swearing in a blue streak again.

They weren’t always like this.

Billy, Eric, Jade, Elsie, and Tyson arrived at the Lincolnshire Wildlife Centre and joined its colony of 200 gray parrots in August 2020.

Soon enough, they showed their liking for speaking the not-so-good language.

“We are quite used to parrots swearing, but we’ve never had five at the same time,” the zoo’s chief executive, Steve Nichols, shared. “Most parrots clam up outside, but for some reason these five relish it.”

Although there were no complaints from the guests, the management still decided to remove them from public display to keep the children from learning bad words.

Their words can be rough.

“When a parrot tells tells you to ‘f-— off’ it amuses people very highly,” Steve said. “It’s brought a big smile to a really hard year.”

Is there any hope that the sweary birds can learn some manners?

Steve hopes that by placing the parrots in different colonies, they can learn the finer points of etiquette surrounding having public conversations.

“I’m hoping they learn different words within colonies – but if they teach the others bad language and I end up with 250 swearing birds, I don’t know what we’ll do,” he added.
