A man has been arrested in Florida for killing a 19-year-old dancing Chilean flamingo named Pinky at Busch Gardens in Tampa.

45-year-old Joseph Anthony Corro was at the park with his family when he reportedly reached into an animal pen, grabbed a flamingo and put it back down.

Then, he grabbed Pinky and threw her to the ground.

Pinky was taken to the animal care center but had to be euthanized due to the extent of her injuries.
