    Does this seem a little too graphic to you to do with little kids watching?

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Zookeepers kill healthy baby giraffe with a bolt gun because he was 'surplus to requirements' and then feed him to the lions but not before doing an autopsy in front of young children.

    This is the horrific moment schoolchildren crowded around to watch as the body of a perfectly healthy giraffe was chopped up before being fed to lions.


    Despite more than 20,000 people signing an online petition to save two-year-old Marius, staff at Copenhagen Zoo yesterday went ahead and shot the animal with a bolt pistol.

    Young children stood at arm’s length as his carcass was skinned and dissected before the meat was thrown to the lions.

    kids who grow up on farms see more graphic stuff than that. not to mention kids in third world countries. the kids will be fine.

    Fucking weirdos. It may not ruin the kid, but they'll never forget it and would have been better off not seeing it.

    This. What is so awful about teaching children about life and death?

    Beth should have saved this giraffe. Would have made her very famous.

    What's wrong with an anatomy lesson.

    It is very unfortunate that they couldn't find a way to save the young giraffe. Are there so many in other zoos?

    these kids are from Denmark which has perhaps the highest standard of living in the world. Def top 5. They are all well versed in science already. It's actually really cool to have a live dissection and then to see the lion actually eat the carcass. Awesome! I would have been so interested then enthralled to be lucky enough to see an actual live lion eating a giraffe.

    Lucky kids

    It's not like they let the kids watch what a pack of african wild dogs do when they catch a wounded, tired, elder, or young zebra.

    i hate african wild dogs

    Would have been a perfect photo opportunity for Beth. Although her diva ways would demand the giraffe not be killed until her photographer had everything in place.

    They could have sold it.

    "After announcing plans to have Marius put down, the zoo received offers of a new home – including one from Yorkshire Wildlife Park – as well as a private buyer who offered 500,000 euros (£410,000)."

    The kids were so horrified by where meat comes from, then 10 minutes later the parents took them for some yummy hot dogs! :coffee:

    That reminds me of the Alaska Last Frontier show with Jewels family that live on a homestead. The one uncle butchered a cow that had been attacking/headbutting the other cows, while they were skinning it hanging by one leg from a tractor, the camera turned around and every cow in the pen was watching them. The uncle says he wonders what they are thinking because they don't make a sound and just watch??

    I bet you none of those kids will grow up to wear their pants sagging, their hats sideways and listening to Madonna and Justin Bieber songs...

    They made men out of them at the zoo i tells ya..... America is full of metrosexual pussies now..
