For those outraged at the death of the giraffe...


I am not being argumentative; just curious about this aspect of the situation. If we are going to keep lions in a zoo then Animals must be killed to feed them. Cows, horses, pigs, sheep, deer are routinely killed in a manner very similar to the giraffe and used to feed zoo lions and tigers. Are you equally disgusted and outraged about the killing of these other animals? Why is the giraffe different? Is it appalling for documentaries to show lions take down and eat prey in the wild? Do you eat meat? Please keep the conversation respectful as we discuss our views!

    If they cared and there was a chance of sending the giraffe to another zoo why not do it? Well, it was part of the screaming headlines that the killing did take place in front of children.

    veterinarian experience is good for children. it is a valuable lesson in the circle of life. the families in attendance knew the event was scheduled and so the parents decided to expose their children to reality. do you think farmers do any less?

    killing plants is the same as killing animals. anyone who eats to live is simply normally responding to the circle of life. one is neither better or worse than the other.
