Foul-mouthed parrot seeks new home in U.K.

LONDON – Everyone has a few faults. In Beaky’s case, he swears (a lot) and he bites.

Not good qualities for a parrot seeking a new home.

Still, honesty is the best policy, so the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has decided to come clean about his shortcomings.

Supervisor Angelina Lusher said Wednesday that anyone who takes Beaky in will have to put up with some rude language. The agency also says he tends to bite people until he bonds with them.

Lusher says Beaky needs interaction with people or other birds to have a fulfilling life.
