Danish zoo sparks outrage by killing healthy giraffe

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/feb/09/danish-zoo-outrage-giraffe-marius

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.

JusticeforMarius‬ .

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.

      Danish zoo sparks outrage by killing healthy giraffe

      A healthy young giraffe has been put down at Copenhagen zoo, despite a campaign to save it. Protesters carrying banners gathered outside the zoo this morning and thousands of people signed a petition to rescue the giraffe, called Marius, after the Danish zoo announced it was planning to kill the animal because of European laws on inbreeding.

      This zoo keeper is a man who must never be trusted. Anyone who gets a kick out of shocking people by this barbaric, cruel intentional act may very likely be on the road to killing people next. There must be charges that can be levied with the help of WWF. This is an atrocity of the worst sort!

      This is blaspheme. There is no justification in putting this healthy, beautiful animal down. There isn't a level of hell low enough or hot enough for any of you.
