Marius, the baby Giraffe’s Last Peaceful Moments Caught On Surveillance Camera

Here is beautiful Marius, so graceful and calm, having no idea a death sentence is hanging over his head. What a sweet baby. This hurt me to the core, it’s the senseless murder of an innocent, just like the wolves are slaughtered every day, for absolutely no reason. RIP Marius!

Now another zoo in Denmark is considering repeating this terrible tragedy with a giraffe, named of all things, Marius. Apparently they see nothing wrong with the way Marius was treated and are just as defiant as the Copenhagen Zoo, despite outrage from around the world over the baby giraffe’s brutal slaying. Sounds like they’re circling the wagons over there, stubborn to admit what happened to Marius was reprehensible!

“Jyllands Park zoo has announced that it might have to kill Marius 2, the Guardian reports, because he could be unsuitable for the European breeding program that the zoo participates in.

Zookeeper at Jyllands Park Janni Løjtved Poulsen says that the zoo will not let the controversy sparked by Marius 1’s death affect their decision. After that young giraffe was euthanized at Copenhagen Zoo to avoid inbreeding, staff at the zoo received death threats and Danish embassies around the world received angry messages.

“It doesn’t affect us in any way. We are completely behind Copenhagen and would have done the same,” Poulsen says, stressing that it would be difficult for the zoo to find a new home for Marius 2. His fate now lies in the hands of  the coordinator of the European breeding program.”…..Time World is thinking about repeating the same horror at their zoo?”

Notice the reactions of the children in the video, that’s included in the article below. As the  zoo is killing and chopping up Marius, to feed to the lions. I see sadness and confusion reflected in their gaze, one little boy was covering his face. This is such a travesty and now Jyllands Park zoo is thinking about repeating the same horror, with a giraffe with the same name? Has the world gone nuts? I think I’d scratch Denmark off of the list of places to visit.
