KRASNOYARSK, November 6. /TASS/. A hunter in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, eastern Siberia, rescued a pink flamingo who most likely lost its way during migration, a local official said on Thursday.
The hunter brought the flamingo home and fed the weakened anf frozen bird with carrots, beetroot, fish and meat. "The flamingo had a good appetite," the official said.
The bird was later airlifted to the Krasnoyarsk zoo, the official said adding that the zoo's vets did not know if the flamingo would survive.
Flamingos can be found in Africa, Southeast and Central Asia, South America and the Caucasus. They do not migrate via Siberia but sometimes young birds can get lost during migration.
Flamingos were earlier spotted in Siberia's Irkutsk and Kemerov regions and near St. Petersburg.
