Stolen flamingo goes on Las Vegas getaway

U.S. & World

LAS VEGAS (KING) – A stranger stole a Washington family’s flamingo lawn ornament, took it on vacation, and then returned it a week later.

The mystery person took one of the two yard flamingos that Sarah Kelsey and her family put inside a cage as a joke.

The stranger left a note that said, “I need to get out of this cage for a while on vacation.”

A few days later, the stranger returned the bird to its cage, and left another note, directing the family to a Facebook page. 

That’s where the person chronicled the adventures of “Mingo the Flamingo,” showing pictures of the pink bird in Hoover Dam, Las Vegas, and even the Flamingo Hotel and Casino.
