OK so there is a story of a perfectly healthy giraffe in a zoo in Copenhagen that is due to be killed by his zookeepers due to the "risk" of his causing "inbreeding" due to a "surplus" of giraffes at the zoo.

Danish zoo to kill 'surplus' young giraffe and feed him to the lions - Europe - World - The Independent (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/danish-zoo-to-kill-surplus-young-giraffe-and-feed-him-to-the-lions-9116786.html)

Sign the petition to save poor Marius!

I mean there are loads of people who could prevent this senseless loss of an animal's life. Someone should stick their neck out!

:igmc:


Edit: They've already killed him. Bugger :(

Having a giraffe? Are you a zoo owner, a gynacologist or a pron filmer?

Two of the three. Owning a zoo helps with the animal pron :rolleyes:

But in this case it means "Having a Laugh (Rhyming Slang) "

Ahh, never mind. I'm sure the lions will find it quite tasty.

"Visitors, including children, were invited to watch while the giraffe was dissected and fed to the lions"

:eek

Crazy decision - completely inhumane.

Still makes me laugh at the moniker associated with the eccentric and self-confessed “polygamist” Marquesses of Bath: The Loins of Longleat. :laugh

There used to be a lunchtime programme about Longleat in which he often featured - seems quite a character. Think BIL (a cabinet maker) did some work for him.

Funny creatures these human beings. They sign petitions and cry over a giraffe killed in a zoo but they don't give a sugar about the thousands of humans killed every day in Syria, Congo, Sudan, etc, etc, as long as the refugees don't come into their own garden!

These danish lions sound a lazy lot if they can't even be arsed to peel their own giraffe for tea.

This precedent is going to frighten the beejezus out of the inhabitants of most of Zummerzet if the article ever appears in their copies of The Sun!!

I don't think it will scare those in Morfolk because the Zoo don't want their animals affected by inbreeding.
