    Four teens charged over bashing of Adelaide Zoo flamingo

    Four teens charged over bashing of Adelaide Zoo flamingo


    FOUR teenagers have been charged over an attack on a blind elderly flamingo at the Adelaide Zoo that has left the bird in a critical condition.

    Police said two males aged 17 and two men aged 18 and 19 were charged with aggravated ill-treatment of an animal.

    They were bailed to appear in court at a later date.

    Zoo officials said the bird was believed to be around 80 years old, making it one of the oldest flamingos in the world.

    The flamingo was attacked yesterday afternoon and suffered beak damage, head trauma and bleeding from the left eye.

    The bird was sedated and taken to a local vet and his condition improved overnight.

    The flamingo arrived at the zoo in the 1930s and currently shares his enclosure with a Chilean flamingo that arrived in Adelaide about 1948.

    The pair are two of only three flamingos currently in captivity in Australia.

    A police spokesman said several people at the zoo at the time of the attack spoke with zoo staff, and officers wanted to interview those witnesses.

    A zoo spokeswoman described the injured bird as tame and docile.

    There was an even more sickening attack at the Adelaide Zoo a few years ago, when some kids broke into the kids or petting zoo after dark, and proceeded to massacre as many of the tame animals as they could get their hands on.

    My solution? personally, I would like to see tham shot.

    I get programme on my cable TV showing Adelaide zoo. It's one of the more interesting programmes and it is sick to think people are injuring the animals there.

    When I lived in London dockands we had similar incidents at the city farm with local youths dragging animals out late at night and kicking then down the road.
    Sheesh, these were tame animals like pigs and sheep which were there just for young city children to see.

    Feed the miserable buggers to the lions.
    I see fish. They are everywhere. They don't know they are fish.
