From the Orlando Sentinel:Man facing trial in death of beloved Busch Gardens flamingo Pinky killed in Orlando crash
A man who faced an animal cruelty charge in connection with the 2016 death of Pinky, a beloved flamingo at Busch Gardens, was killed in a traffic crash in Orlando this month, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
According to the report, Joseph Corrao, 48, was crossing State Road 50 in Orange County June 5 when he was struck by a pickup truck shortly before 6 a.m. He died at a local hospital.
The Times reported that Corrao was facing trial in August for animal cruelty in the 2016 death of Pinky, an animal ambassador for the Tampa theme park that “delighted Busch Gardens patrons with its dance moves.” Corrao was visiting the park with family members when he grabbed Pinky and slammed the bird to the ground, the report said.
Pinky was badly injured and was later euthanized.
