Giraffe in danger after another zoo indicates possible plans to kill
Another giraffe in danger in Denmark
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,”
