Flamingo Put Down After a Child Threw a Rock At It

A flamingo from Miller Park Zoo in Illinois was put down on Monday after an elementary student threw a rock at it in the animal’s exhibit.

A representative from the Bloomington, Illinois, zoo told CNN that the rock broke the flamingo’s leg and caused injuries that led to it getting put down.

The Zoo said that it is working with the student’s family to make sure it is a learning experience, according to a WMBD report.
