Ever since word got out that a second giraffe, who shares the same name as a previously murdered giraffe, was possibly going to be killed at a Danish zoo, people started going nuts.
All sorts of offers to save him started flooding in, along with threats and petitions to not kill the beautiful creature.
Jyllands Park Zoo, current host of Marius the giraffe (the living one), assured everyone that unless a female giraffe was brought in for breeding purposes, Marius would be safe.
But that still means if a female giraffe shows up, they're gonna kill the hell outta Marius.
Thankfully, the Chechen President, Ramzan Kadyrov, has offered to save the giraffe, saying:
"I’m worried by reports that another giraffe is about to be slaughtered in Denmark. I’m ready to accept Marius for humanitarian reasons. We guarantee him proper living conditions and will take care of his health. We can guarantee him the good conditions of detention and care of his health. We hope that this proposal will find a positive response from management [at] Jyllands zoo!"
Best part about all of this is the President's offer isn't the only one, two circus artists from the Bolshi Moscow Circus have offered to personally buy Marius, saying:
"I am fully aware that the Bolshoi Moscow Circus is not interested in saving the giraffe. I mean as a company, as we specialize in working with animals not in saving them. But my brother Askold and I decided that we are ready to buy the giraffe with our own money, transport it to Russia, provide it with lodging and manage it on the basis of the Bolshoi Moscow Circus. And in the future, I think, a number of Russian zoos will take the initiative and want to save this giraffe. That is, we are not trying to save the animal only for it to become our worker, the task is to save it."
So amazing so many people are going out of their way to save a giraffe they don't even know.
We really hope the zoo gives up Marius to a place that won't even consider killing him.
Let's get Marius off death row!!
