Pinky, a flamenco-dancing flamingo and animal ambassador at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, died Tuesday after being attacked by a park guest, authorities said.

Tampa police said witnesses reported seeing Joseph Anthony Corrao reaching into the flamingo pen, picking up one flamingo and putting it back down.
Then he grabbed Pinky and his mother told him to leave the birds alone, police said. Corrao, 45, threw Pinky to the ground, nearly ripping one foot off, witnesses told police.
Corrao was prevented from leaving by witnesses.
One told CNN affiliate WFTS that Corrao threw Pinky down "in a rage."

This poor excuse for a human being needs to be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Don't let Pinky's abuse and subsequent death be in vain!
