Do you see the giraffe in the picture above? His name was Marius and he was two years old. He was killed today by the Copenhagen Zoo to “avoid inbreeding”.
They used a gun to kill him, and afterwards they dismembered him in front of an audience with children. There was an online petition to stop the Zoo and multiple offers to send Marius to another zoo, but they ignored the thousands of signatures and turned down all of the offers. They took his remains in for research and fed the rest to the lions, tigers, etc.
This is so fucking disgusting. How dare you kill an animal that had a whole life ahead of it just because of your “lack” of space and “duty to avoid inbreeding”? To make things worse, you tore the giraffe apart, piece by piece, in front of a bunch of kids and then wonder why this generation is so numb when it comes to violence? Congrats on your research. I bet it was really fucking worth it.
