Denmark Zoo Must Stop Murdering and Dissecting Lions

lion-by-peter-harrison

Target: Head of the Odense Zoo

Goal: Utilize other methods to prevent inbreeding and never kill another lion again.

Odense Zoo, a zoo located in central Denmark, murdered one of its one-year-old female lions, claiming the murder was to prevent inbreeding. The zoo reportedly plans to publicly dissect the lion, after already dissecting another young male lion as a public spectacle for people and children at the zoo. The zoo has been conducting public dissections for 20 years.

The zoo has allegedly killed three young, healthy lions this year. Odense Zoo claims that they tried unsuccessfully to find new homes for the lions, and because of this had to instead murder them.

Zoos allegedly kill animals all the time in order to keep zoo populations from surplus. Activists say the zoos can use other methods like contraceptives in order to keep populations down, prevent inbreeding and to keep animals healthy.

This lazy and disgusting practice of murdering and dissecting healthy lions cannot go on any longer. Demand Odense Zoo use other methods to solve its zoo problems and never murder and dissect another lion again.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Odense Zoo Head,

I am writing to tell you how disgusted I am that you run an organization for animals that allegedly  kills and dissects them when they are young and healthy for some kind of public spectacle. How you have gotten away with doing this for 20 years is beyond reason, but it must come to an end.

There are other methods like contraceptives that you can use to prevent the problems you claim you have that supposedly require you to murder these innocent creatures. I have a difficult time believing that you actually tried to find them new homes but had no other choice but to kill them.

I demand you use other methods to solve your zoo problems and never murder and dissect another lion again.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I’m extremely disgusted gor these killings! All animals should be found sanctuaries if lawmakers don’t put an end to these senseless murders. This is horrific!

  3. It is extremely disturbing to see how casually you kill, but furthermore proudly showing a dissection of a baby lion to little kids like you did, is truly sick and has nothing to do with “eductation” but with sensationalism and mental perversion! But then again, what to expect from a nation that finds “animal brothels” and rape of animals a normal(!) thing. You call yourself a liberal and civilised nation, but you don’t even know the meaning of the words! Yep, go ahead and raise new genereations of perverted serial killers that will start to kill and experiment on neighbourhood pets – just like you showed then: http://www.welt.de/vermischtes/article147642366/Daenischer-Zoo-laesst-Loewin-vor-Kindern-sezieren.html

  4. Disgraceful. Such beautiful creatures!

  5. Another lot of moron’s!

    What is wrong with these people!?they seem to be stuck in the dark ages!

    So many sick people out there!!

  6. I can’t believe that there was no other alternative to killing this (these)animals. It sounds as if they didn’t try very hard to relocate the animals, but rather took the “easy way out”.

  7. Karen Remnant says:

    They need to stop killing – there are methods of birth control, use them! If not, close the damn zoo!

  8. Along with Copenhagen zoo that does the same disgusting barbaric things to animals even when the animals have been offered sanctuary in the UK, this zoo and its cretinous director must be closed and the cretin sacked. These zoo directors do not deserve to be in charge of animals. They are no better than hunters and trophy hunters that kill animals. Why don’t they give unwanted animals to animal rescue sanctuaries like Born Free or FourPaws. What sort of parents are the disgusting Danes that take their children to see animals dissected? They are no better and shows the sadistic mentality of the Danes. How will the children grow up – to have no respect for animals – they will be the trophy hunters and animal killers of the future. The Danes also slaughter seals on the coast, I’ve seen photos of their barbaric mentality and cruelty Boycott Denmark it is a disgusting country. It’s about time the authority that oversees zoos to put a stop to this. What a useless organisation it is.

  9. UNBELIEVABLE INHUMANE IGNORANCE AGAINST EXTRADITED LIVING & BREATHING CREATURES MEANS FOR ALL OF THOSE ASSISTS IN THESE CRUEL PRACTICES SOWS THEIR OWN FUTURE! THIS SHOULD BE WELL KNOWN BY PERSONS RESPONSIBLE!

    EVERYONE OF THIS INHUMANE RABBLE WILL SEE WHAT FUTURE PROVIDES FOR ALL OF THEM!

    AS YOU CAN SEE ALL OF DISASTERS IN OUR WORLD – YOU SOON COULD BE THE NEXT PART OF THOSE EARNING THEIR SELF DEPENDENT LIFE AS THEY DESERVES IT WITHOUT ANY COMMISERATION!

    LAST INFANTILE AND GREED SCUM – GET RIDDEN BY YOUR GUILT – OR STOP THIS MISERY IN THE MOMENT!

  10. YOU – must not breeding them to kill.

    ASSHOLES

    The last time I commented on a site about the killing of the baby giraffe, I was told to stay out of Danish business as I didn’t know what I was talking about. Well, apparently I did know, as they have now proved once again that they have no concern for any animal’s life. I really can’t understand why they even have zoos! My comment was that I would make sure that I never spend any of my travel dollars to visit your country, nor buy any Danish products. Unfortunately, it seems that the officials who make these tragic decisions are only interested in finances and I will see to it that none of my money is ever spent in your country!

  12. Controlling the zoo population is just an excuse. What they really want is the thrill of killing and dissecting an animal! And also those parents bringing their children to see these cruel acts… You people are sick!!! You deserve the same cruel thing to happen to you!

  13. What’s wrong with speying the females or castrating the males if no homes can be found instead of killing them?

  14. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser

  15. Do NOT support this zoo — zoos should be in the business of saving & rescuing animals AT ALL COSTS — not killing them off with poor, irrational & callous excuses! — It is clear that these zoo managers do NOT give a damn about their animals! — REMEMBER THIS — Each individual animal is precious & has value AND has the right to live — DO NOT SUPPORT THESE ZOOS in any way or form — it’s only about the bottom line and NOT about the animals, as it should be.
