What in the world is going on with people!
We told you earlier about the totally disturbing situation at the Copenhagen Zoo where they murdered Marius the Giraffe in front of children, and then fed him to the lions.
People were outraged for many reasons, like kids witnessing the scene, and because other zoos offered to take him and allow him to live!
But Copenhagen Zoo said "NO!" and now the Danish zoo is getting threats by both phone and email, according to Tobias Stenbæk, the Zoo’s spokesman.
Some zoos are saying that there is a breakdown in communication, and that’s why the Danish zoo has said they’re proud of what they did, while the rest of the world rages over it.
Bengt Holst, director of research and conservation at Copenhagen Zoo, added that they did it because zoos need "not to make nature into a Disney World.”
Well, it doesn’t have to be Disney World, but aren’t zoos supposed to be fun, not traumatizing?!
That’s what Jack Hanna believes! He had some strong feelings on this issue, stating:
"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."
Yup! THAT’S what we were thinking!
Still, stop the threats people. They won’t bring Marius back!
