The offender is a 45-year-old man with a criminal history spanning two decades, which includes drug charges, a hit and run, child abuse, contributing to the delinquency of a child, driving under the influence, DUI with serious bodily injury and burglary. Severe punishment is necessary for this career criminal and will help to deter others from committing future acts towards defenseless animals.
Yes, if the man intentionally killed the Flamingo in Orlando he should be jailed for the appropriate amount of time for the crime that he committed. Animals should not be subject to harm without punishment in the same way that it is illegal to harm people without punishment. This man should be jailed.
Sure, sure, it's still wrong to kill an animal; but it's again wrong to JAIL someone for this. People have done more serious criminal actions and have been let off. Unbelievable.

Killing a flamingo should not be a common occurrence but it also shouldn't be deserving of jail time. Many animals are killed daily and this is an issue but a single case like this doesn't deserve jail time. Orlando needs a more specific law about killing of flamingos and what deserves jail time.
Punishment for a crime should be commensurate with the crime itself. Imprisonment is only suitable for more serious crimes, such as robbery or drinking while driving. While killing a flamingo is a punishable act, it is not as serious as driving drunk or robbery. It merits a reasonable fine, but nothing more.
