Pinky, aged 19, has been murdered.
Originally from Chile, Pinky was a flamingo at Busch Gardens, in Tampa, Florida.
Her antics clearly offended Joseph Corrao, 45, a visitor to the theme park.
He picked her up and slammed her on the ground, witnessed by his mother and three children.
Corrao was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.
He has form when it comes to taking against animals.
In 2013 he shot and killed a neighbor’s two dogs, having blamed for killing his daughter’s rabbits. The dogs were obliterated at point blank range with a shotgun, and Corrao served time..
Chilean flamingos can live up to the age of 50.
Not Pinky, however.
