Barney, a five year old Macaw, who one time was owned by a truck driver, has been put into isolation at an animal sanctuary in Warwickshire, England, for retraining after telling a lady mayor to "fuck off"...

A macaw (not Barney)

Barney also told a lady vicar: "and you can fuck off as well."

When two policemen came to inspect the bird, Barney told them: "And you can fuck off you two wankers."

A sanctuary worker told reporters: "He does say 'Hello, big boy' and 'Thank you' when you give him a biscuit."

Another macaw (still not Barney)

Centre manager Geoff Grewcock told the Sun newspaper: "He seems to swear more at people in uniform, whose clothes may strike him as a bit strange."

"His favourite word is definitely 'bollocks'".
