And finally… no one told you when to run

A flamingo that flew away from a Kansas zoo some 17 years ago and has been on the run has been spotted in Texas.

Pink Floyd, as the bird is known, was seen on March 10 wading into Cox Bay near Port Lavaca, about 120 miles from Houston.

“Looks like Pink Floyd has returned from the ‘dark side of [the] moon’!” the agency joked.

Pink Floyd escaped Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kansas in 2005 after the zoo forgot to clip his feathers.

He is thought to be about 27 years old.
