Zoo forced to separate parrots because they wouldn’t stop swearing

If there is one place children always love to visit, that would be the zoo. The various animals inside the zoo keep the kids awed and full of wonder.

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

In a zoo in London, five parrots were removed from the view of guests because of swearing.

Yes, you read it right. These five parrots are swearing like no tomorrow at each other and are becoming a bad example for little children passing by.

At first, parrots who talk are cute and adorable. Swearing can be entertaining as well, but these are normally done by the birds for just a few instances.

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

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.

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 and removed the five African gray parrots 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 from each other and remove them from the public display as well.

The parrots seem to set each other off, so the management placed the birds in different areas of the park so they won’t have to see each other and start swearing in a blue streak again.

The five parrots were not 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.

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.

“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.”

The birds were moved to different colonies, and Steve sure hopes that they learn to speak a better language than cursing others with their words.

“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.
