I know I said no ugly pictures would be on this blog but I’m sorry we can not just turn our heads to what was done to this innocent baby giraffe.
To say that I am incensed does not even begin to convey the anger and rage I am feeling at the moment. If I lived in Copenhagen the asshole c.e.o. that allowed an innocent baby giraffe to be slaughter would have no rest because I would be heading the biggest boycott/protest. Actually the only thing that would make me feel better would be if I could personally torture this pathetic excuse for a human being.
Yep I am one angry and pissed off vegan right now.
For those of you who have been distracted by the Olympics and are wondering what the heck is Ivonne talking about? Oh and the Russian Olympics–well that’s a whole another rant right there.
Okay here goes :
Under the direction of Bengt Holst, the scientific director of the Copenhagen Zoo, a perfectly healthy, 18-month-old giraffe, Marius, was killed by a bolt gun on Sunday morning after eating his favorite meal of rye bread. Marius was killed because the zoo said that he was not useful for breeding, as his genes were too common.
At least one zoo in Sweden and a wildlife park in Yorkshire had offered to give Marius a home but Holst turned a deaf ear to these appeals. After killing Marius, the Copenhagen Zoo had the giraffe’s body dissected publicly and then fed his remains to the lions.
✦BAD BREAKING NEWS!
Despite other zoos offering to take the Baby Giraffe the c.e.o said no.
What can we do about it?
Well there are three petitions circulating. One is to close down the zoo and the other is to have the c.e.o fired from his post. I will post the links below.
Please sign and share these petitions. Let us be the voice for Marius even in his death.
