Copenhagen Zoo Kills 4 Lions After Giraffe Death Controversy

Copenhagen zoo, the same zoo that caused a stir worldwide after putting down a healthy giraffe and dissecting it in public, has found themselves in the middle of controversy yet again after killing two lions and their two cubs to make way for a new male lion.

“Because of the pride of lions’ natural structure and behaviour, the zoo has had to euthanize the two old lions and two young lions who were not old enough to fend for themselves,” Copenhagen zoo stated.

They defended themselves further saying the 10-month old lions would have been killed by the new male lion “as soon as he got the chance.”

The four lions were killed on Monday after the zoo failed to find a new home for them, a spokesman said. All four lions were from the same family.

The spokesperson further noted that there will not be a public dissection of the animals since “not all our animals are dissected in front of an audience.”

Within a few days’ time the new lion will be introduced to the zoo’s two female lions, who are at breeding age.

“The zoo is recognised worldwide for our work with lions, and I am proud that one of the zoo’s own brood now forms the centre of a new pride of lions,” the zoo’s chief executive, Steffen Straede said.

Last month, people were so infuriated by the death of an 18-month-old giraffe, Marius that the zoo’s scientific director, Bengt Holst, received death threats over the decision to put down the young giraffe with a bolt gun before children were allowed to watch his body be chopped up, dissected, and fed to lions.

The decision affected thousands worldwide who had signed an online petition to save his life but to no avail. The Copenhagen zoo said on its website that it had no choice but to prevent the animal from reaching adulthood since under European Association of Zoos and Aquaria rules inbreeding between giraffes is to be avoided.
