A decision by the Copenhagen Zoo is sparking outrage around the world. Zookeepers killed a perfectly healthy giraffe simply because its genes weren't good for their breeding program. They conducted an autopsy in front of an audience that included kids and then fed the remains to the zoo's big cats. Copenhagen Zoo’s Scientific Director Bengt Holst defended the decision.
The Columbus Zoo's Jack Hanna is outraged and told Anderson "This is a living creature… you have an obligation to that animal."
