    they were? For some reason, I have a feeling this is going to be one of those PeteEU moments where we are confronted with a vast distinction between your definition of "forced" and the one everyone else uses

    Seriously, have you seen the pictures?

    Video: Copenhagen zoo kills and dismembers young giraffe - Telegraph

    It is a graphic video, and you can clearly see young children at the front. What their parents were thinking I dont know..but it is disgusting.

    Are we upset because a cute animal was harvested?
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Why would I need to work at a zoo to know they call animals for similar reasons? All one would need to do is reference the AZA "Acquisition - Disposition Policy". But beyond that, I know many people who work in zoo environments

    So I was right: people taking their kids to see a dissection is children "being forced"

    Because the idea is to manage the collection as a whole
    It's over reach on his part.

    Do you read what you respond to? Why would you suggest selling to the public in response to a post where I am explaining why they don't engage in such practices?
    Yes, I do. I am starting to wonder if you do, though! Why would you not sell a sterilized giraffe to a public zoo? If reason for not selling to a private zoo is fear of inbreeding then you don't have to worry about that with a sterilized giraffe! By sterilizing the giraffe you get to weed out the private zoos who only want him for breeding purposes.

    What was the "rational reason" for not castrating the giraffe? According to the BBC:

    "Contraception and castration have been raised as possibilities, but both would require sedation. This is a relatively high-risk procedure in the case of giraffes, as they are liable to break their necks when they fall while sedated. "
    A yes, completely rational! They might risk killing the giraffe, so it's better if they just kill it instead.

    This is not was rational elimination of alternatives looks like.

    There was a rational purpose here
    It was rash, not rational.
