A dad turns a prank around on his daughter, aggressive dogs have a change of heart, and more.

In Lincolnshire County, England, a wildlife park has removed five African Grey parrots from public view because of their foul language. Lincolnshire Wildlife Park adopted the parrots about six weeks ago and put them in quarantine together, according to LincolnshireLive. During their time together, the birds shared the ability to curse. Although he and fellow park employees found the whole thing funny, Steve Nichols, the park’s CEO, said he decided it would be best to move the cursing birds out of view before visiting kids heard them. The birds have each been moved to different groups, and Nichols said the plan is to put them in separate areas of the park “so at least if they do swear it is not as bad as three or four of them all blasting it out at once,” he told the Independent newspaper. “If they teach the others bad language and I end up with 250 swearing birds, I don’t know what we’ll do,” he told the BBC.

In New York City, at least three Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) employees converted a storage room at Grand Central Terminal as a “man cave,” according to an internal investigation, CBS New York reports. According to the Office of the MTA Inspector General, the room had a futon couch, large flat-screen television with streaming capabilities, a refrigerator, microwave, air conditioning, workout equipment and more—including an open can of beer. The inspector general says it made an unannounced visit to the storage area in August 2019 after Metro-North officials failed to investigate complaints about workers using the space to “hang out and get drunk and party,” according to the news report. Investigators say the three MTA employees denied having ever been in the room but they left their fingerprints behind. They have been suspended without pay.
