This story is as disgusting as it is tragic.

In what's just the latest in a series of never-ending violence against zoo animals, Pinky the Flamingo from Busch Gardens Tampa Bay was put down on Tuesday after she was randomly attacked by a park visitor.

According to witnesses, Joseph Anthony Corrao, 45, allegedly reached over Pinky's fence, grabbed her by the neck, and forcefully threw her to the ground at 6:45 p.m. EST… for no apparent reason!

While the Chilean dancing flamingo did not die upon impact, park veterinarians had no choice but to euthanize her due to her injuries being too severe.

The park released a statement remembering Pinky shortly after her death, saying:

Blake Lively Is Perfect In Pom Poms While Kristen Stewart Looks Like She Just Came Back From A Renaissance Faire For Café Society

Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart attend Cafe Society premiere.

Birds of paradise!

Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart brought to mind enchanting winged creatures at the Café Society premiere in New York Wednesday night.

Blake was an absolute vision in a pale gray Carolina Herrera halter dress with bubble skirt decorated with light pink pom poms.

How cute is she?!

Kristen once again opted for Chanel, choosing a very Renaissance faire-esque tiered lace white skirt and gauzy lace-up top.

(She could totally catch a falcon on her forearm, BTW).

It's hard to compete with Blake, who is basically Barbie come to life, but who's your fave???

Over 400 Neglected Animals — Including Cats, Rabbits, Turtles, & Even An Alligator — Rescued From A Single Disgusting Home!

This must have been one truly disgusting rescue mission.

When you hear "Operation Noah's Ark", you may be inclined to imagine a group of people pleasantly interacting with sets of beautiful animals.

Unfortunately, that couldn't be further from the truth… as authorities in Upstate New York just rescued more than 400 animals from a home in worse than dire living conditions!

According to the Nassau County SPCA, workers were called to a home on Tuesday when neighbors reported strange smells and noises coming from the house… only to find hundreds of birds, turtles, and other pets and wildlife left to die.

Apparently, home owner Gary Gruber had become too old to take care of the animals himself, and despite his best efforts, the creatures were living inside feces-encrusted cages that took eight hours to clean.

Of the 400+ animals found, authorities identified 251 birds, 151 turtles, four reptiles and a dozen mammals — including rabbits, prairie dogs, a chinchilla, a skunk, and even African Grey parrots and other endangered tortoise species!

This news comes less than a year after Gary was cited for keeping a 4-foot long alligator in his home… but for some reason, he was allowed to keep his six cats and dogs despite potentially facing animal cruelty charges.

Thankfully, the birds and turtles have been taken to a wildlife sanctuary in Long Island.

During Tuesday night's debut performance, an owl that was supposed to make a quick flight during a scene failed to return to its handler — and instead escaped into the auditorium!

Since the play is still in its preview stage, producers were quick to scrap the birds. Audiences on Thursday night's show were greeted with a sign that said "no real birds" were used.

The producers explained their decision in an animal-friendly statement:
