Jane: Marius the giraffe isn't the only one

Jane: Marius the giraffe isn't the only one

The story of Marius the giraffe is horrific. Marius was a healthy giraffe living in the Copenhagen Zoo when he was killed and fed to the lions. This was done despite a petition signed by tens of thousands of people asking them not to kill Marius, and there were even offers from other zoos to take Marius in. 

This is a terrible waste of a beautiful creature, but it just highlights the ugly backstory of how we treat animals. The only difference was we got to see it. And unbelievably, so did a group of children. Marius was dismembered and fed to the lions in front of an audience of children and their parents. That sends a horrible message to kids that violence toward animals is OK. Didn’t anyone stop and think about the studies that show violent killers often abused animals as children? Why would you want to expose kids to that idea at all?

Do you think Michael Dunn will take the stand?
