Zookeeper and TV personality Jack Hanna, who is also director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio, joined the chorus of outrage Monday, calling the Copenhagen Zoo's decision "the most abominable, insensitive, ridiculous thing I've ever heard of."

He also questioned why the Copenhagen Zoo would keep breeding animals for which they didn't have room. The Columbus Zoo would never euthanize an animal in this manner, Hanna said, and he wouldn't condone showing an animal consume another animal to children.

"I know it's natural in nature. I'm not an idiot," he said, "but I don't need to have some 2- and 3- and 6-year-olds -- they cannot understand at that age. You understand they don't understand nature. They haven't been to Africa, so that's what we do at the zoos. We try to educate people at zoos on what happens in the wild."

*rant start*

well as a Dane I'm frankly sick and tired of people from around the world that has been shooting their mouth off about something they quite clearly doesn't have a fucking clue about and that includes Brian May. Seriously this whole thing is getting beyond pathetic.

People who refuse to listen to the actual facts and very good reasons for doing this but oh no it's a cute animal so it shouldn't be put down and then screw the consequences for the animal of that. All options had been looked into and this was the best and most humane option left but again why care about FACTS or the CONSEQUENCES of the various options as long as the animal is cute.

Can you tell I'm fed up with ignorant idiots that's caused mayhem (incl. deaththreats and anyone and everyone in DK getting insane horrible emails) here for days all because they and their press couldn't be fucking bothered to actually learn about the facts first, especially considering the majority of them are also hypocrits cos wtf do they think the meat they stuff their faces with on a daily basis comes from and i gurantee that all those animals isn't anywhere close to having as good a life or death as that bloody giraffe did.

and lastly if you think this is something that doesn't happen in practically every bloody zoo around the world think again

*rant over*

I don't condone death threats against anyone and am avoiding anyone acting like that or speaking like that.
However, this man travels world-wide and is a zoo director in the USA. He also has an opinion. I trust his over a non-veterinary or non-expert in that position.

Gonna have a 1 sided discussion, then do it right. Only you are just defending the place that's in the wrong.

Basically we have people reacting with more anger to the shooting of Marius the Giraffe than of Trayvon Martin.

I beg your pardon, are you asking me to delete your posts?

Posting a request in a thread I haven't contributed to is possibly not the best way of getting my attention.
DISCLAIMER: If you find a posting or message from me offensive, inappropriate, or disruptive, please ignore it. If you don't know how to ignore a post, complain to me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate.
