Notorious for not only killed a baby giraffe, but for having butchered in front of children, the Copenhagen Zoo is likely to attract the wrath of animal rights defenders again after ending the days of two lions and two cubs.

Zoo officials explain that the two older animals were slaughtered “because of the behavior (…) natural after nobody wanted them back. The two cubs, aged 10 months, were euthanized because “they were not old enough to fend for themselves.”

In a few days, a new male will indeed be presented to the two lions born in 2012 in the zoo today in reproductive age. “[The cubs] were killed by the new male as soon as he would have had the opportunity , they said to justify their decision.Unlike girafon Marius, there was no this time of dissection in public because “all our animals are not cut” to visitors, they said.

GENETIC HERITAGE DEFICIENT
The decision to kill the baby giraffe 1 year and a half early February caused a scandal and rebellious people from around the world. Despite many expressions of support, the animal had been executed with a captive bolt before an autopsy attended by visitors, including children. He finished butchered before the cameras Danish media to feed the deer, because it did not present a sufficiently original genetic heritage.

The zoo has defended his decision by explaining that participates in a program of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) to avoid inbreeding among giraffes. Under this program, Marius genes were found to be too unoriginal to enable it to reproduce in his zoo or other EAZA network. 

This position was fully supported by EAZA, which has  347zoological institutions in 41 countries and manages breeding programs, called European programs for endangered species (EEP), established in 1985.
