    The suspect in Pinky the flamingo's death is struck by a truck and killed

    The man who drew the ire of animal lovers after he was accused of causing the death of Pinky, a beloved Chilean flamingo at a Florida them park, has died.
    Joseph Anthony Corrao, 48, was struck by a pickup as he crossed a road in Orlando, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Corrao was taken to a hospital, where he died June 5. The truck driver has not been cited, though authorities are investigating the incident.

    Corrao was scheduled to go to trial in August on felony animal cruelty charges, according to court records.
    In 2016, Corrao was visiting Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay with his family when he grabbed Pinky and threw her to the ground, nearly ripping one foot off, witnesses told police.
    The 19-year-old flamenco-dancing bird received traumatic injuries and was euthanized.

    I don't believe in "karma", nor do I rejoice at the death of another human being, no matter what they did. I don't care if it's an animal abuser, a child molester, or murderous dictator. Obviously, there are times when a person must be killed in order to stop their behavior from continuing, and there are times when a death sentence must be imposed to deliver justice, but even in those cases I am not happy when the person is killed.

    The great thing about Karma is it doesn't matter if you believe in it, or accept that it exists. With all due respect.....it just IS!!
    EDIT.....and I didn't interpret the OP as "rejoicing" in another human being's death. He simply stated and observed "facts". I mourn the death of a convicted murderer, almost as much as I mourn the death of their victim (s).

    Who is rejoicing? I'm merely reporting something that happened and it SEEMS like it may be karma. But what do I know?

    Flamingos worldwide are rejoicing, the ones that watch the news anyway.

    Not sure if it is karma, but seems like some sort of justice prevailed. I just got to believe that there is more to the story as it unfolds.

    Is it karma or just another motor vehicle fatality? I mean karma would have been if he died of the avian flu that he wouldn't have contracted but for his alleged attack on Pinky the Flamingo.

    P.S. If he had died of avian flu, I wouldn't rejoice--just sayin'.

    Have you tried Barbie doll shoes? They seem like they may be small enough. Try the open toe ones.

    I once had an incident involving a very aggressive gang of sea gulls and a hot dog that I thought was going to end in me having to physically defend my property

    Shame it didn't happen before he crossed paths with pinky the flamingo.
    I hope the pickup driver doesn't feel too bad about it and the damage to his truck was minimal.
