Copenhagen Zoo Kills 4 Lions Weeks After Giraffe Controversy
Wait, was it SO hard to find them a separate enclosure? You can't convince me that the killing of those cats was so urgent and there was no other option.
You see, you have a few young lions. So you dedicate a separate enclosure to them. They continue living in that enclosure, with all the respective facilities that an average enclosure in a relatively well-run zoo in the capital city of a developed country has. Meanwhile, you write them into the international registry, so when a need for young lions emerges in another zoo, one or more of them could be transferred.
They can't convince me that the Copenhagen zoo has to have only one lion enclosure and not even one more, no matter what. That smells of bullshit.
But, given their previous actions (murdering an adult giraffe, chopping it to pieces in front of a bunch of bewildered minors, and giving it to the predators for food as some kind of twisted education act of "showing the dark side of life" to the kids), I've recently been rather sceptical about the ability of that zoo's management of taking reasonable decisions.
