Jack Hanna working to save giraffe at Copenhagen Zoo

Associated Press • Feb 15, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Celebrity zookeeper Jack Hanna said he’s horrified a Denmark zoo killed a healthy giraffe and fed it to lions, and he’s working to save a second giraffe that may be killed at a different zoo there for similar reasons.

   The Copenhagen Zoo said it killed a 2-year-old giraffe to prevent inbreeding. The carcass was butchered in front of a crowd.

   Hanna called that “abominable” saying the killing was wrong even if it hadn’t become a spectacle.
