Blues_X: Can't they just neuter it?
Joe Peanut: splab: Joe Peanut: splab:Also, didn't NY just talk about killing off some 2000 swans? Where are the riots? That is our farking national bird! We should be declaring war on the US for that!Swans aren't endangered, and are an invasive species in NY. And since they are bigger than the local water birds competing for the same resources, the populations of these native species are becoming dangerously low while the invasive swans are flourishing.So it's ok to control that population, but not the giraffe population in captivity? While giraffes are endangered, having Marius (either of them) around, isn't helping the population, remember, giraffes aren't native to Denmark.Are you serious? Giraffes aren't an invasive species in Denmark, competing and dominating the fight for local resources against local species. It is a completely different situation.
lohphat: lobotomy survivor: Kill millions of livestock for food, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little giraffe will die, well then everyone loses their minds!I could get behind that reasoning if giraffes were as ubiquitous as cattle.
MagicMissile: ( maybe they could just take it back to Africa or wherever its from, and let it go? )
xria: <strong><a href="http://www.fark.com/comments/8142139/89268276#c89268276" target="_blank">fusillade762</a>:</strong> <em>After a necropsy, the giraffe was dismembered in front of an audience that included children and fed to the zoo's lions, tigers and leopards.That seems... inappropriate.</em>Would it also be inappropriate for children to watch their mothers cooking, or feeding a pet cat?
gfid: Count me among those who don't understand why they just can't neuter it. I heard the guy who shot the other giraffe describe how it went down. They offered Marcus (the giraffe) rye bread. Marcus loved rye bread, but when Marcus ate the bread this time, blam, right in the head and he's dead.Upon explaining his death to his relatives zookeepers just kept saying that they were afraid he might fark his sister.
mrswood: I'm not sure what's so entertaining about watching a lion eat dead giraffe parts.
feckingmorons: Zoo eugenics. Once we get used to it in zoos we will have to get used to it in people. If you have an ugly baby the government will kill it.Bit by bit it creeps in until it is accepted.
