A foul-mouthed parrot with a taste for human flesh is up for adoption. So long as you don’t mind enduring a string of expletives during the day and the odd peck if you get too close, you may be interested in taking on Beaky, a chattering lory who is more bad bird than angry bird.
He didn’t just get his name from his blue language, but because he also enjoys biting people he doesn’t really know. The lory is a parrot-type bird, but the RSPCA warns the new owner needs to not only be pretty broadminded, but also expert in the care of exotic creatures.
Beaky is currently in the care of the RSPCA Leybourne Animal Centre, in West Malling. His favourite curse is the dreaded F-word, along with ‘a***hole’ and he likes to call everyone ‘stupid’.
Staff said he actually has a very large vocabulary and repeats most of what he hears. A spokesman said Beaky is an intelligent and playful bird who is a good mimic but has picked up some colourful language. He enjoys the company of people, but staff warn he may bite at first until he has formed a bond with someone.
