A man has been reunited with his missing parrot after he recognised the bird's foul language in a Facebook appeal. George the African grey parrot was found in Guiseley, near Leeds.
The saying goes that a dog is man's best friend, but ask Barbara Smith-Schafer and she'll tell you that she prefers a parrot.
And that's because she says her African Grey knows when she's in danger and comes to the rescue. Sarah Clark reports.
