Young Boys Accused Of Beating A Beloved Pink Flamingo To Death

CZECH REPUBLIC (CBS4) – Zoo officials at the Jihlava Zoo in the Czech Republic say a group of boys beat a beloved pink flamingo to death after sneaking into the enclosure.

The 16-year-old bird was allegedly stoned and beaten to death by three boys, ages 6, 8 and 10, after the boys scaled a fence to get into the exhibit.

Other flamingos were also injured after the officials say the boys threw large rocks at the flock.

A technician who worked near the exhibit heard an “unusual sound” and saw the boys as they ran from the area, The Washington Post reported.

The boys were eventually caught after a zoo employee called the police.
