Florida Man June 26: Flamingo Killer Killed By Truck.

In a stroke of karmic revenge, a truck struck and killed a Florida man crossing the road.

What makes this man a Florida Man and this karmic? Well said, Florida Man killed a beloved Florida Mascot, Pinky the Flamingo, at Busch Gardens.

It all started back in August 2016, when our Florida man, Joseph Corrao, 48, decided to pick up a 15-year-old Chilean flamingo at Busch Gardens, Tampa.

Witnesses stated that Corrao threw Pinky the flamingo to the ground. He threw the bird so violently that she was instantly severely injured. Her leg was injured to the point of almost being severed.

The Florida man told investigators that he had no intention of hurting Pinky. He stated he was showing off for his daughter.

Veterinarians later had to euthanize the beloved dancing bird.

The case of pinkys death sparked national outrage. The incident motivated many people to start and sign online petitions calling for “justice for pinky” and stricter punishments for animal abusers.

The man had previous animal cruelty charges from an incident that ended in him shooting two of his neighbor’s dogs.

Florida Man was just two months shy of his trial date.
