    Do you understand how difficult it is to properly house a large animal like a Giraffe? And yes, killing the animal is much preferable to housing it in substandard and abusive conditions. It's one of the reasons we euthanize stray dogs, cats, and the various exotic animals ****heads buy as pets.
    What need would I have to know how hard it is to house a giraffe when A ZOO WAS OFFERING TO TAKE THE GIRAFFE? I bet the Yorkshire Zoo knew what it was offering.

    If your goal is just to nod your head and repeat whatever the Zoo says you can take a break from the thread since we are all getting that crap direct from the source.

    And so it begins.

    Marius the giraffe: Copenhagen Zoo staff get death threats - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- Staff at a Danish zoo where a healthy giraffe was euthanized have received death threats as debate rages online over the killing, which took place despite a petition signed by thousands of animal lovers.
    Several staff members were targeted after the animal, named Marius, was put down, Copenhagen Zoo spokesman Tobias Stenbæk Bro told CNN on Monday. He added that Bengt Holst, director of research and conservation at Copenhagen Zoo "received threats via telephone and e-mails."

    Animals raised in captivity generally wont survive in the wild.

    I was thinking about why not just neuter him, but it looks like that was an issue as well.

    They survive a lot longer in the wild than they do in Copenhagen Zoos, apparently!

    Re: Copenhagen zoo sparks outrage by killing healthy giraffe named Marius

    Cruel, twisted, horrific, unnecessary abuse of an animal that trusted his caretakers. Truly vomit-inducing. There were so many options available, including neutering and shipping to one of the many qualified zoos/wildlife preserves that wanted to have him. Just seems like a bloody public spectacle for the sake of it, by people who have no heart and no conscience.

    Several article posted here, even one from you, made it clear they were following EAZA guidlines

    <<<He said the zoo had followed the recommendation of the EAZA to put down Marius because there were already a lot of giraffes with similar genes in the organisation's breeding programme.>>>
    BBC News - Why did Copenhagen Zoo kill its giraffe?

    <<<A spokesman for EAZA stressed that, as an individual, Marius was not particularly inbred, nor was the giraffe suffering from any identifiable health problem....
    ....He said all alternatives were looked at, but none were found to be viable, describing euthanising animals as a "last resort". When the future survival of a species was at stake, he said, unpalatable decisions sometimes had to be made.>>>

    this was already explained to you numerous times ...

    If your goal is just to nod your head and repeat whatever the Zoo says you can take a break from the thread since we are all getting that crap direct from the source.
    actually I was explaining to you, for the third time, that in the article you posted, their reference to using contraception was for future breeding projects and not in reference to the Giraffe being that was recently killed. This is because you have been arguing that it was in reference to the Giraffe that was culled
