Danish zoo sparks outrage by killing healthy giraffe
A healthy giraffe killed is absolutely disgraceful and to invite visitors, including children to watch the giraffe being skinned and fed to the animals. That's just sick and what message does that send out to preserve these animals for future generations..
There was no need to be barbaric as many people offered to take in that giraffe than see it be killed...
As if we do not have enough killing of these beautiful animals with poachers and trophy hunters etc now we have a zoo.
Death should always be a last resort, not something to insist upon. The way Holst stubbornly refused to consider any alternatives that might save Marius' life is appalling. He claims his actions are the name of science, but he is an embarrassment to the scientific community. No scientist practicing ethical behavior would ever assume such an uncompromising stance against life.
His callous attitude towards a living creature and his disrespect for the wishes of the public deem him unfit to serve as scientific director of any institution. Science does not need ruthless people incapable of compassion. This reflects badly on the rest of us as well.
