77. That is another great point

Apparently the zoo was first owned by the city who turned it over to a private corporation. The flamingos have a special secure enclosure built for them. They should have been in it.

On the other hand it does not mitigate the seriousness of the behavior of the college students who trespassed onto zoo grounds by jumping a fence, fatally kicking or hitting the mate of this flamingo, and taking the female flamingo away. The female also died from its injuries from capture and transport. Total value of both flamingos approaching $5,000.

Everyone who entered the zoo grounds should be charged with vandalism, destruction of private property, trespassing theft, and whatever animal cruelty charges may be available. They all share in the guilt.

By the way the only one charged so far actually made a rap video of this. It is shocking to see his lack of concern for his behavior.
