Wildlife advocates say this a macabre practice that is not necessary.The killing of a young giraffe in Copenhagen Zoo in February 2014 shook the world, prompting protests from animal advocates and the public. “Marius”, an 18-month-old giraffe who was born at the Copenhagen Zoo, was in good health and likely would have lived a long life.Marius was culled and then fed to the lions at the zoo because zoo officials concluded he was unsuitable for breeding.
