COPENHAGEN ZOO HAVE KILLED MARIUS.
A bid to save a young giraffe from destruction at Copenhagen Zoo has failed, and the giraffe was put down on Sunday morning.

Thousands of people had signed an online petitions appealing for a change of heart over the 18-month-old called Marius.

The zoo said it had no choice because of European rules to avoid in-breeding.

Marius was due to be killed by a bolt gun, not a lethal injection, which would contaminate the meat.

Two zoos, one in the UK and one in Sweden, had reportedly put in last-ditch offers to take Marius in.
