A Zoo in Copenhagen justified their actions by saying it was a necessary step to prevent 'inbreeding'. Despite an online petition of over 27,000 signatures to save the young giraffe (nicknamed Marius), the Zoo proceeded to shot the animal with a bolt gun and feed part of it's remains to carnivores in the Zoo (Lions, Tigers etc).
OH, did I mention this was all done in front of the PUBLIC (INCLUDING CHILDREN!)....
