HIALEAH, Fla. – Milly Herrera has been fighting for years to “save” the Hialeah Park Race Track, a national historic landmark since 1979.
This week, she warned that a dead flamingo that turned up on Monday in Miami Springs could be a sign of the failure to protect “one of nature’s most beautiful creatures.”
She also said the handling of the park for flamingos had failed the late Sen. Roberto Casas, of Hialeah, who had long supported turning the national historic landmark into a public park.
County and state records show Stephen Brunetti, of Bal Bay Management, owns the private property, at 100 E 32nd St., in Hialeah. Property records show there was a transfer to East 4th Residential, a Florida corporation registered to an attorney in Coral Gables, in March.
The flamingo’s cause of death remained unclear on Tuesday afternoon and the property owner could not be reached for comment on Herrera’s allegations.
