How the hell is this being allowed to happen?!?

The Copenhagen Zoo has yet AGAIN outraged millions by killing off otherwise healthy animals! This time, it was two lions and their two 10-month-old lion cubs!

The zoo decided to euthanize the four cats in preparation for a new male lion on his way to the park!

In their official statement, the zoo tried to defend murdering these beautiful beings, saying:

"Because of the pride of lions' natural structure and behaviour, the zoo has had to euthanise the two old lions and two young lions who were not old enough to fend for themselves.”

There is NO WAY that could be the best solution!

What about shipping these lions to a different zoo?? Or putting them in a different enclosure??

Sadly, we’re not surprised by the zoo’s actions. After all, this is the same place that killed Marius the Giraffe last month due to his, "non-diverse genes.”

They then took Marius’ corpse and fed him to lions in front of school children! Probably to the very same lions that they senselessly killed this week!

We’ve listened to the song Circle of Life quite a few times and we’re pretty sure there’s no verse in there about putting a bolt gun to a giraffe’s head, pulling the trigger, feeding him to a bunch of lions and then killing them too!

Congratz on having the WORST zoo in the world, Denmark!

This is horrible!

    I find it adorable that you live in this fairy tale world where lions live on fairy dust and giraffes die in their families' loving arms.
    The truth is that they tried to move the lions and no other zoo wanted them.
    They had to put the cubs down or the new lion, their father, would have mated with them which would have let to inbreeding, or simply eaten them. Put that in your nursery rhymes. Or you could just grow up..?

    I am tired of all the ignorance… This happens in zoos all over the world, Copenhagen zoo just made a choice to talk about it openly because they want to educate people on the animals, and how you run a zoo… And obviously people need the education!!!!

    Re: Bo – glad to see some common sense here… And I love how he leaves out the part where the zoo discussed what they were trying to do in feeding the parts to the lions in front of the children. It was for educational purposes and the children were supervised with their parents, they weren't forced to stand and watch.

    Oh, the ignorance. This happens in zoos all over the world most just don't talk about it. And how is this different than the millions of completely healthy cows and pigs that are slaughtered every single day for food after living terrible lives? Please enlighten me cause I can't see why there's a difference..

    I'm gobsmacked that these people are allowed to operate as a Zoo&correct me if I'm wrong but arent Zoo's supposed to be just a little more animal friendly? I find it hard to understand that its more appealing to kill off the animals in (such a public&/or for) such bazaar circumstances! This has done so much to damage&tarnish the name of Zoo's around the world, after all (we assume)they are supposed to look after the creatures in they're care. Unfeeling, barbaric&nasty! & the folk that talk about mating problems&inbreeding, there is plenty of vets who would stop mating by simple procedures. Shame, Shame, Shame

    What is wrong at this Zoo? they need investigated. Jack Hanna of Columbus Zoo already said he would home any animals they had no room for. They apparentelyhave no value for a animals. After the Giraffe incident too.

    Why isn't anyone doing any thing. But they are still shipping animals to them.

    Stop being a drama queen. Death happens and putting down two old lions and two young lions is part of animal husbandry. Would it have been better to watch the young Cuba struggle to survive? If another zoo wanted them don't you think they would have been shipped? The truth is, there is limited space in zoos for all animals. The natural habitats of these animals are miles and miles wide. They are hunters and in the wild, lions have no issue killing off the young that will be competition for food. This zoo is being responsible and making the hard decisions for the lions they already have. Time to grow up. Go visit lions in their natural habitat. Putting money into tourism to see them will help preserve them.

    Re: Bo – why not make an area for them. And yes dispose of the body if the giraffe died of natural causes.. To kill them.really! I the wild inbreed and cannibalism goes on that's nature. Do better/know better!!

    This zoo is a great zoo. Animals are killed every day all over the planet, but because it is a giraf or a lion it is worse? The Lions are even feed healthy animals like horses and cows, is that then also bad? What about all the animals we treat badly before slaughter that we eat without thinking of the poorly treated pigs, cows ect. People please have a little perspective!

    Jack Hanna did say he would have taken Marius no question about that. If only the people in Denmark not go to that place they call a zoo it would be forced to shut down. I find it hard to believe that no one wanted the tiny cubs or for that matter the older lions. I find it very hard to believe that " zoo" would have transported the baby cubs if someone wanted them. There were many offers to take Marius and they chose to kill him instead. Zoos are supposed to deal with conservation not deliberate killings.
