Flamingo Still Out There Living Best Life After 17 Years

A flamingo that escaped from a zoo in Kansas back in 2005 has been spotted again, this time near the Texas coast. Two flamingos escaped the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita on a stormy night. While the second flamingo was never seen again, No. 492 has been spotted several times in Wisconsin, Louisiana, Texas, and sometimes with other wild flamingos. Zoo officials haven’t made plans to recapture the bird, as there’s no easy way to do so without disturbing other wildlife.
