Pinky the flamingo -- one of the biggest draws at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay -- had to be euthanized after a man allegedly got into the bird's enclosure and slammed it to the ground.

The Orlando man reportedly reached into the famous dancing flamingo's pen Tuesday night. Busch Gardens security detained the suspect until police arrived. He was booked for felony animal cruelty.

The theme park released a statement saying it was forced to euthanize Pinky due to her injuries. Pinky was 19, and one helluva dancer.
