    Foreign zoo kills healthy young giraffe.

    Worldwide horror after zoo slaughters healthy giraffe despite international campaign to save him.

    COPENHAGEN Zoo said they killed Marius the young giraffe to avoid in-breeding, despite offers to rehome him.

    Marius was shot with a bolt gun after a final meal of rye bread, then his carcass was cut up and fed to lions at the Zoo.

    What is worse is that youngsters were forced to watch as zoo staff dissected the animal, which was killed despite offers of a new home being promised for the two-year-old.

    Read the full story on this outrage HERE




    I say that if they wanted to put him down because he was inbred, why did they breed with his parent animals in the first place and what harm would it have done so long as Marius was not used for breeding in the future ?

    I don't think we are hearing the true story here. What say you ?

    I cannot imagine what these people were thinking. Either that or they were very hard up for meat for the lions.

    I have heard of children being forced to watch a frog being dissected, but, a bloody giraffe. affraid

    Yes Zath' this is a shocking story any way that you look at it.

    I just hope that the people down there give that zoo a bypass and vote with their feet over this scandal.

    Yes HG, they have. Suspect

    I have heard that that zoo is about to be closed down because it is losing money.

    At least if that happens the animals will go to the other zoos that are already willing to take them.
