Filthy, callous, bureaucratic, rubber stamping, goose stepping, moronic bastards. Disband this expensive, dangerous, heartless shower of sh t now, and have these overpaid wasters whipped naked through the streets, publicly executed, and displayed on a gibbet. Maybe this should have been put in the rant forum but I have had it with these E.U. monkeys and their dictatorship of lunacy. It costs us a fortune and causes nothing but misery.
The thread title pretty much says it all but a Denmark zoo was ordered to kill a perfectly healthy giraffe by the Commissars in Brussels/Strasbourg whichever this money pit of idiocy is currently p ssing the collective wealth of nations away. As you can likely discern this has really got to me and I am sorry if my language offends anyone. If you have any heart within in you visiting the link will probably make you as angry as it has made me.

Star from me...I'm beyond disgusted with this, and their attempts to play god with a completely innocent creature. If the gene pool is so limited in Europe as they claim, then send the poor beastie somewhere else, for god's sake. Longleat in England should be in the firing line too for euthanasing a whole pride of lions last week. Unbelieveably arrogant, short sighted and and callous. These people should NOT be making decisions beyond what kind of coffee to have in the morning.

"Say what?




Hopefully with the publicity this will be reversed or stopped, or the giraffe can be smuggled out of the country disguised as a okapi. More common sense is needed in humans policies towards all animals, starting with the dinner-plate.

I am sorry to tell you that it is too late for that. Utter Scum T&Cs prevent me from adequately expressing my disgust.

I think Victoria Nuland's recent quote eloquently speaks for me on this.

Well, there are two sides to this. I see what they are saying. When you have a limited amount of available spaces, they do have to maintain a genetically diverse population. That makes sense.

Ok, that being said.

There are plenty of places in the US and other countries that are trying to recreate the Savannah park experience and have decently large acreage for African animals to roam. You can't tell me they couldn't have gelded ole Marius and sent him to one of those places. Those animals are well cared for.

OK, that being said.

Let me screw on my tinfoil hat. When it comes to human population control, how are the unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats at the top going to start treating us?

If this is the kind of compassion I can expect ... you can count me out of any NWO.

And then they turned it into a circus and invited people (children too) to watch while they cut the remains apart and fed some of it to lions.

There is no reason this should have happened. Multiple zoos offered to take him, but he apparently wasn't genetically important enough.

Marius as he was called, had a great life, every day he had fresh meals, people to take care of him and a doctor to make sure he was healthy.

The best and cheapest solution to this was to put him down painlessly and feed him to the lions as lions need food to,Some children got well educated to, they suffered no harm by watching, it's just what it is.

Turning him over to another Zoo isn't easy, it's expensive and dangerous to the animal, you don't just put them on the first flight to the nearest Zoo.

Remember everytime you eat your bacon burger at least two animals were put down.

In the meantime somewhere on the African savannah, thousands of animals every day, live in fear of getting eaten alive.

Now Rest In Peace Marius, you will propably not be remembered for long.

I cannot understand why they euthanised this poor animal. I understand their point on genetics, so why not neuter the poor thing so it was not able to breed instead of killing him.

Disgusting

The Zoo owner should be put down with a bolt gun and fed to lions as I deem him genticaly "inferior".

Exactly neuter him and sell him on to a new zoo.

The disposal of the carcass is a separate and secondary issue to me. I brought this subject to the site because I thought it deserved the attention, you may not agree. My frustration is at the way modern bureaucracy leads to these seemingly insane decisions, and the remark made by the poster who suggested this could be seen as indicator of the callousness we might expect in the future, could be enough to give one pause.

You have covered it all, I can not think of a thing to say that you have not so eloquently said already, bravo !!

Animals are my only connection to reality and civility so I will pass on the link.

Making a conspiracy out of it, is kind of a long streach don't you think


I think you will get over it

Animals are moved all the time. There were other options, but because it isn't easy we should go straight to euthanasia?

I missed that part where the E.U. ordered this, could you point it to me, please?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your participation and your compliment. I hope this thread can go some way towards preventing more of this happening on the orders of a faceless, costly, and callous oligarchy.

Yes, they are and it's nice that such a thing can happen to an animal, but in this case it didn't.

But look at it from the bright side, another animal was saved from being slaughtered and feed to the Lions

The zoo had said on its website that it had no choice but to put Marius down. Under European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) rules, inbreeding between giraffes is to be avoided.


Presumably because of that.

And this

Stenbaek Bro says the zoo was recommended to put down the giraffe by the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria because there were already a lot of giraffes with similar genes in the organization's breeding program.


Oh, and this.

The zoo said it had no choice but to kill the animal, who is thought to be aged around two. Under European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (Eaza) rules, inbreeding of giraffes should be avoided.




Oh and this.

www.washingtonpost.com... l



Stenbaek Bro said the zoo, which now has seven giraffes left, was recommended to put down Marius by the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria because there already were a lot of giraffes with similar genes in the organization’s breeding program.

The Amsterdam-based EAZA has 347 members, including many large zoos in European capitals, and works to conserve global biodiversity and achieve the highest standards of care and breeding for animals.

The zoo said it has no choice and has to destroy the animal due to EU rules on inbreeding. It also said the young giraffe, Marius, could be a danger to other bulls.
