Flamingo at Illinois zoo euthanized after child hits it with rock

A flamingo at Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington, Illinois, was euthanized after a child threw a rock into its exhibit and injured the bird. The child allegedly broke the flamingo’s leg when the rock was thrown. ’This was a truly unfortunate accident, and we are working with the juvenile’s family to move forward’, said Jay Tetzloff, the city’s director of parks, recreation and cultural arts.

The zoo should sue the parents. Parents are responsible for the actions of their children. But of course that won't happen.
