It’s official, three flocks of pink flamingos have left the community. Unofficial guestimates say the bothersome birds visited 40-50 residences or businesses. According to Kermit Spencer, Rye High School Girls Basketball Coach, Elementary Teacher and Part Time Flamingo Wrangler over $1,000 was spent by citizens procuring Spencer’s services to remove the pesty beasts.

Spencer said the money from the Flamingo Wrangling will go to entry fees and fuel expenses for next year’s basketball summer camps.

“I am so thankful to all of the Greenhorn Valley Community; Rye, Colorado City and surrounding areas alike, who donated and helped us out,” commented Spencer. “There were also many individuals and local businesses who went above and beyond to help us out. I would love to try and mention everyone who helped, but I would be afraid I would miss someone. Without a doubt though, it was a phenomenal outpouring of fun, chuckles and fundraising.”
