Zoo scholarship executive Jochen Reiter explained to Bild that during 24, a zebra had reached impassioned aged age and that it had been put down humanely according to animal rights rules.
Rather than disposing of a cadaver, a zoo keepers motionless to reintroduce it to a round of life by giving a lions a robust meal.
“For predators, feeding them with whole bodies is a best from a nourishment psychology indicate of view,” Reiter told Bild.
“In a animal there’s everything: vitamins, innards, skeleton to scratch off tooth plaque. And it’s really uninformed meat. Our dual lions will suffer it for about a week.”
But a zoo’s movement bears some-more than a flitting similarity to final year’s preference by Denmark’s Copenhagen Zoo to feed a stays of a giraffe to lions after conducting a open ratiocination in front of children.
A opposite lion during Odense zoo became the intent of a open ratiocination itself this year, lifting a uninformed call of general media outcry.
