Simple Sunday – Tragedy at the Zoo

Missing legs

Zookeepers will not speculate to the cause that lead to the tragic loss of several pink flamingo appendages this morning.  An investigation is currently underway in hopes of getting to the bottom of this tragedy that has caused three year olds such as a boy we will refer to only as Carter to tearfully ask his mom: momma, where did the flamingo’s legs go?  Why they only have one leg?

  1. The Flamingos do not seem all that concerned that someone stole their legs.

      Oh they were very concerned. So concerned in fact that they could not show their faces for fear of crying in public (those stoic flamingos.)

    Glad he could tell there is actually a head in there somewhere!

    Perhaps an episode of Law & Order? 🙂

    Perhaps they flew too close to the tiger cages.

      Their enclosure is next to the smallest deer in the world, the Pudu (or as Carter calls it the PooPoo). I am thinking that the Pudu is not as vegetarian as we all think.
