Pebble The Fowl-Mouthed Cockatoo Delivers The Best Rant We've Heard Yet

You tell 'em, Pebble!

Pebble the cockatoo cuts a calm figure, but boy, does it have a fowl mouth.

At least, that's if a video released on YouTube this week is anything to go by.

Pebble lives at Saskatoon Parrot Rescue in Rosthern, Sask., and people around the world are learning what a dirty mouth he has.

The video shows Kelly, a staffer at the rescue facility, holding a round cage and explaining why it's bad for a cockatoo's mental health.

Kelly then stomps on the cage aggressively — and right away, you can see what this does to Pebble. Feathers on the bird's head pick up, and it unleashes a torrent of F-bombs that would be excessive in a Quentin Tarantino movie.

Funny as the video is, Saskatoon Parrot Rescue president Treena Cheveldayoff said the shape of a bird's cage is a serious issue.

"These round cages don't offer any security to the bird," she told the Saskatoon StarPhoenix. "They have nowhere they can back into, and they will search endlessly for these areas."

As for Pebble's dirty mouth, the shelter insists that the bird learned those words elsewhere.
