N+S The eaza and aza are a complete farce. The elephant standards adopted by these organizations are woefully inadequate, and many zoos that display elephants do not meet even these meager requirements.

NO ZOO ANIMAL is really PROTECTED AT ALL by these organizations. Stories about Tania and Marius, were brought to us by the media so obviously they are just the tip of the iceberg. It's actually EAZA's job to prevent these things from happening in the first place.

Don't know what number I was when I signed. Too pissed to look!!
How can they say they are protecting animals when they don't do anything to help.them???? ARRGG!!
They need to be kept in solitary to see what it is like!! Elephants need other elephants to have a family, kinda like humans!!! We only put the worst of the worst in solitary confinement! What did this poor animal do to deserve this??
The more I see what humans do to animals, the more I like animals!

We should nurture compassionate thought. Since we wish to live, we should not kill any other living being. Furthermore, the karma of killing is understood as the root of all suffering and the fundamental cause of sickness and war, and the forces of killing are explicitly identified with the demonic.

The highest and most universal ideal of Buddhism is to work unceasingly for permanent end to the suffering of all living beings, not just humans.

"Eliminating All the Suffering and Afflictions of Sentient Beings." From this samadhi state he spoke the Medicine Buddha Dharani oṃ bhaiṣajye bhaiṣajye mahābhaiṣajya-samudgate svāhā

After the scandal of Marius' killing, the " show" in front of children, etc. I think the Copenhagen Zoo is laughing loud at us. They want publicity and they must have assumed that no one rules over them ...
This particular Zoo must be shut down !!

I'm furious about the injustices committed by this zoo and by EAZA's callous indifference and inaction!
Signed with strongly worded comments calling on EAZA to amend their rules to better protect animals and to improve their monitoring of member zoos to ensure that they act in accordance with those improved standards. Basically urging them to do their job and act in the interests of animals and not in the interests of zoo profits. Noted in disgust, thanks Ruth-Ann for posting.

I won't give up on petition that more animals are killed by the staff and Bengt Holst.....they should be out of the Copenhagen Zoo or the zoo should clase before it would be too late. Please stop killing the animals or zoo should shut down now. It hurts my feeling that Marius, the giraffe and 4 lions and cubs. Thank you, Ruth, Jelena, Ted, Debbie, and some Card2 friends.
