The lions needed to be fed and we had some extra giraffes... Zoo's explanation for killing young giraffe

Danish children among those watching the dissection of a giraffe

In spite of petitions, protects, begs, pleas, cash offers, and "adoption offers", the Copenhagen, Denmark Zoo last week killed a healthy, young giraffe. Why? The basic explanation from zoo officials: We had some extra giraffes, and the lions needed to be fed.

Poor Marius. She had a chance... plenty of them... but those in charge of her decided she was not going to get any of these chances. And so offers from other zoos, enclosing a zoo in neighboring Sweden, were rejected. A cash offer of over a half-million bucks to save the giraffe was rejected.

So tall, she has to duck the entire time she is in the restaurant

Perdy decided to visit a restaurant the other day. Perdy went in, and checked things out for a bit. She didn't sit down and eat. There really wasn't a chair for her. Not that there wasn't an empty chair... there were only a few chairs taken, most of them by people relaxing and surfing the Internet while sipping on latte. But there wasn't a chair she could fit in. She is rather tall. And a bit misshaped for a chair. But that was okay. She didn't want to stay.
