    They should have put this jerk in one of the holding pens and then let a tiger in to maul him. It is only a matter of time before PETA and the radical animal rights activist call for BG to be shut down.

    TAMPA — Flamingos stomp their feet to bring delicious critters to the water's surface. But when Pinky did it, people were entertained. She was one of Busch Garden's animal ambassadors, danced the flamenco on TV and delighted delegates at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

    Pinky the flamingo died Tuesday, police said, after she was attacked by a park patron.

    Tampa police said Joseph Corrao, 45, grabbed her pink-feathered body and violently slammed Pinky to the ground about 6:44 p.m. Tuesday — in front of his own mother and three children.

    Pinky was badly injured, police said, one of her feet nearly severed. Busch Gardens veterinarians had to euthanize her late Tuesday. The Chilean flamingo was in her late 20s.

    Corrao, of Orlando, was arrested on a charge of felony animal cruelty — a year and 15 days after his release from prison on charges that he shot and killed two chained dogs at point-blank range with a shotgun.

    I have a hard time understanding people who hurt animals. I feel guilty for a light butt paddle when my cat scratches something. Some people are so sick! :mad:
