LONDON (October 31, 2012)—Beaky the parrot swears a lot and he bites, neither of which is a good quality for a bird seeking new digs.
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.
Beaky is a chattering lory that will only be given to new owners with experience handling exotic birds.
Lusher says Beaky needs interaction with people or other birds to have a fulfilling life.
