Corrao was set to go on trial in two months for the demise of ‘Pinky’ the Flamingo.

According to WTVJ, Corrao was ‘accused of grabbing the Chilean flamingo from a pen and slamming it to the ground while visiting the Tampa theme park with his mother and daughters.’

Corrao later told police he was only trying to show the animal to his daughter and did not intend to hurt Pinky.

The flamingo was badly injured and ultimately had to be euthanized.’
