'Fugitive' flamingo spotted in Texas after escaping from zoo in Kansas

TEXAS -- A notorious African flamingo, who escaped from a zoo in Kansas in 2005, was spotted on a Texas coast bend Monday afternoon.

The flamingo was enjoying a sunny day near Lavaca Bay in south Texas, when Texas Parks and Wildlife snapped a picture of No. 492 and posted it on Twitter.

The sneaky flamingo has made its break from a Kansas zoo after keepers failed to clip its wings.

No. 492 has reportedly been spotted in several states since his escape.
