This fowl has foul language

Beijing, Dec 17 (IANS) A myna bird is being kept in isolation at a zoo in China and will be re-trained after it insulted visitors with foul language.

The bird, a common hill myna (Gracula religiosia), is a member of the starling family from hill regions of south Asia and southeast Asia. It is a master at imitating human speech and singing, the Shanghai Daily reported.

The Jiufeng Forest Zoo in Wuhan, capital of Hubei province, introduced eight mynas from Vietnam in 2010. Four were put in on show because of their outstanding linguistic talent.

The four birds learned some simple greetings in Chinese, and said "hello" when visitors arrived and "bye" when they left.

However, one of the birds recently directed a mild expletive at some tourists, stunning zoo keeper Li Yun.

The zoo keeper said he had heard some tourists try to teach the birds rude words.

Since mynas also tend to learn from each other, the zoo isolated the bird, which will get special training.

The training programme includes playing tapes of polite words. If the bird says any more rude words, it will be punished, and kept without being fed, trainers said.
