Well they got the mug shot right. Wasn't a pony that killed the bird, it was an ass.
As punishment he should be made to pluck and clean the bird by hand. Then deliver it on a silver platter to the lions, tigers and bears.

The bird was beaten to death because it would never listen to the zookeepers instructions. It just kept sticking it's head it the sand and began teaching the jack-ass to do the same.

He got something like an actual sentence of two months in prison, a fairly hefty fine, and termination of his long standing employment, but in an article about a person who would beat a large, feathered animal to death with a shovel you'd think the article would include the zookeeper's real or claimed "rationale" for doing so.

Because he's going to be out of prison in a coupe of months, running around on the loose....
