[They said Marius was “surplus”.]
Marius, an 18 month old giraffe, had a bolt put into his brain in front of spectators. They then autopsied the poor thing in front of an audience. I don’t understand; what was the point of the autopsy – they were the ones that murdered Marius after all. Marius was then dismembered and fed to lions. All this because the zoo stated they were fearful of inbreeding.
Zoos, and most people that go to them, offer nothing for the environment or wildlife.
But hey – this is the same country that slaughters dolphins too.
