Five parrots in UK had to be separated after they ganged up and insulted visitors.

A British wildlife sanctuary was forced to separate five parrots who wouldn't stop insulting visitors. Keepers say the birds encouraged each other to keep cursing, and had to be moved from the main outdoor aviary. 

Billy, Eric, Tyson, Jade and Elsie had to be removed from view. According to reports, They joined the Lincolnshire Wildlife Centre's colony of 200 African gray parrots in August, were put in quarantine together and quickly overwhelmed the staff with their naughty language. 

"We are quite used to parrots swearing, but we've never had five at the same time," the center's chief executive, Steve Nichols, told AP. "Most parrots clam up outside, but for some reason these five relish it." 

Though most visitors who overheard the colorful language laughed it off. "When a parrot tells you to 'f--- off' it amuses people very highly; it’s brought a big smile to a really hard year," said Nichols the zoo decided to take measures to nip the behavior in the bud.
