Now dead Marius the giraffe in Copenhagen Zoo have really put the director of the Zoo in the spotlight. Thousands of people have joined forces on Facebook to prevent the killing of the animal – and the Director and his family have even been threatened upon their lives.
In this Channel 4 interview the Director of the Zoo explains some key questions that I think you should listen to before going through the roof:
- Why did the animal have to be killed?
- Why did they choose to do a public necropsy after the animal had been killed?
- Why feed the lions with the meat?
- And would the Copenhagen Zoo do it again if necessary?
