Patrice H.'s insight:

This is Django's story.... Django was born on a dog meat farm, just outside Seoul. Classified as a 'meat dog', his only value to the world was measured on scales. But Django was a lucky one... Django was rescued from life on a farm and his impending slaughter. He is now being provided with the love and care he so desperately needs to mend his broken soul and body.

Euthanasie du girafon de Copenhague : le personnel du zoo menacé de mort

Euthanasie du girafon de Copenhague : le personnel du zoo menacé de mort | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it
Le feuilleton "Marius" continue. Parce qu’il n’avait pas un patrimoine génétique intéressant, ce girafon d’un an et demi en parfaite santé a été exécuté avec un pistolet d’abattage dimanche matin au zoo de Copenhague. L’animal a fini dépecé devant les caméras des médias danois, pour nourrir les fauves. Pourtant, jusqu'aux dernières minutes, les défenseurs de Marius s'étaient mobilisés, notamment sur Internet, où dimanche matin différentes pétitions (en anglais et en danois) avaient recueilli plus de 35.000 signatures au total. En vain.

If you're really saddened by the death of Marius the giraffe, stop visiting zoos

If you're really saddened by the death of Marius the giraffe, stop visiting zoos | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it
If there had ever been any doubt that zoos serve no purpose beyond incarcerating intelligent animals for profit, the slaughter of Marius, an 18-month-old giraffe, on Sunday has surely settled the issue. Copenhagen Zoo delivered Marius into a life of captivity, allowing his mother to give birth to the calf while knowing that the baby would be “surplus” to its requirements and “useless” for breeding because his genes were too common.
