Patrice H.'s insight:

Danish newspaper BT said that the healthy, young giraffe was fed some rye bread at 9:15 am (local time) and was shot in the head with a bolt gun. Live footage of what has been an outrageous ordeal for the poor animal, showing its body being dissected, was streamed by Ekstra Bladet. In the video, the zoo staff explains the process to the public, describing the giraffe's anatomy.

Mandy Webster's curator insight, February 7, 2014 9:37 AM

Yes, God (or Mother Nature, or whatever you believe in) will handle global warming. When the Earth's population becomes more than the Earth can sustain, then the Earth will do something about it. I'm not sure I want to be around when that happens. What if we were to be proactive and at least make an attempt to reverse our impact so that day doesn't come so fast? Whatever we do or don't do, the Earth will survive the human race. We can't survive without Earth.
