Another giraffe, ironically named “Marius,” like the giraffe who was killed at Denmark’s Copenhagen Zoo less than a week ago, is in danger of losing his life at a different zoo in Denmark, reported Thursday’s CBS News.

The latest “Marius,” in jeopardy resides at Jyllands Park Zoo, which is also in Denmark.

On Sunday, the first “Marius,” an 18-month-old giraffe, was killed in public because he was considered “surplus,” and his genes were said to be “inferior.”

The Jyllands Park Zoo “Marius” is seven-years-old and he will be killed if the zoo acquires a female giraffe – unfortunately for Marius, the likelihood of a new girl in the zoo is “likely.”

Zoo keeper Janni Lojtved Poulsen explained why Marius might be destroyed:

We can’t have two males and one female. Then there will be fights,”
