On 30th September, CNN Travel reported an English wild park’s decision to take 5 African grey parrots away from the public’s “ear” after the gang got caught swearing at passersby.
The parrot gang – consisting of Eric, Jade, Elsie, Tyson and Billy – was said to verbally attack visitors and staff members at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park in England with unimaginable profanities.
The report further revealed that all 5 of them were donated to the park by 5 different owners within the same week – umm this sounds a bit sketchy.
Even the park’s chief executive Steve Nichols couldn’t escape from the foul-mouthed parrots’ attacks. “I get called a fat t**t every time I walk past,” he told CNN Travel.
Broke up the gang
Mr Nichols said many park customers loved these potty-mouthed birds and swore back at them.
However, the park decided to break up the group of 5 and removed them from the display area due to the concern for young visitors.

The park hopes that all 5 African grey parrots’ language will be more polite once they’ve split up.
This story is just delightful.
