Adelaide Zoo's Flamingo

It is hard to fathom why someone would harm this beautiful bird. A couple of weeks ago it was beaten by a group of four teenagers. Fortunately it has recovered from the ordeal, and the teenagers have been arrested.

This Greater Flamingo was brought into Australia in 1933, but now due to very strict rules relating to the importation of birds, it is unlikely it will be replaced when it dies.
