Angelina Jolie's parrot is causing chaos at the store where she houses him while she's away promoting films and adopting babies - he stages hunger strikes and attacks customers.

Jolie returns the African Grey to West Hollywood's Amazon Rainforest Shop, where she bought him, whenever she's out of the country and the grumpy bird makes sure his temporary handlers know how upset he is with his mistress.

Regulars claim the bird has to be coaxed to eat and acts aggressively towards customers.
