Barking parrots win News Story of the Day

From the Shropshire Star:
A pair of protective parrots are proving effective guard dogs for a Telford security firm – after learning how to bark. 
‘Guard Parrots’ Elvis and Cilla have been stationed outside RMP Guarding in Stafford Park by bosses Trevor and Louise Bate. Signs around the firm’s premises warn would-be thieves that ‘these premises are being patrolled by RMP Guarding security’. 
But the ferocious barking beasts are merely the two green winged Macaws squawking away from their perches.
This story also gives the answer to the age-old question "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" It is: "Barking parrots, of course."
