Animal Cruelty?


WARNING – This story really bothers me. A Danish zoo which drew outcries several weeks ago when it killed a healthy giraffe and dissected it publicly, killed four lions this week to make way for an incoming adult male lion. Citing the “pride’s natural structure and behaviour,” the Copenhagen Zoo said Tuesday that two old lions had been euthanized as part of a generational shift. It said the cubs were also put down because they were not old enough to fend for themselves and “would have been killed by the new male lion.” Wtf? So the animals couldn’t have been relocated? You’re telling me that absolutely NOTHING else could be done? BS. Science or cruelty? ~ mars
