Zoo staff get death threats

Recommended Posts

It's one thing for it to happen in nature, but it's a different story when you intentionally create a scenario and showcase it as some kind of spectacle.

It's a dissection. Didn't you do this in biology class? There's nothing wrong with dissecting a dead animal. They had to do it anyway, they just decided to make it a learning opportunity for the public. Basically a public biology class. No one was forced to watch. I really don't see what the big deal is.

I don't know why the animal couldn't just have been neutered though. Seems a bit more humane than killing it entirely, but then I don't know the first thing about giraffe genetics, so I'm sure they have a good reason, especially when they're turning down such large offers to buy the animal.

They said that neutering giraffes is not well mastered and risky.

That would be the reason then. Thanks :)
