Game Wardens contacted after flamingo lands at Kansas lake
CHASE CO., Kan. (WIBW) - Game Wardens have been contacted about a flamingo that has landed at a Kansas lake and continues to enjoy the warmer weather.
The flamingo, whom local officials have dubbed “Flint,” has attracted a number of visitors and the Sheriff’s Office has a few reminders for them:
- Watch for pedestrians
- Park where access is not restricted
- Do not attempt to catch the flamingo
Flamingos seen in the wild in the southern parts of the U.S. are native to Mexico, the Caribbean and northernmost South America. However, flocks have been recently appearing as far north as Lake Michigan in Wisconsin.
