Hi fellow members of DDO,

This may seem like a discussion that should be had in the past tense, but if one has read the news today they would understand that there is now another Giraffe... in Denmark... named Marius.. who is also set to be killed by the Zoo due to it being genetically unviable for reproduction.

Are the actions of these two Zoos justified?
Should they have accepted an alternative course of action to killing these healthy animals?
Are Americans simply hypocrites for our outrage at the inhumane actions of the Denmark Zoos because of our industrialized farming problems?

I'm not currently decided on the matter, but I wonder if anyone would like to weigh in with their opinions.
