Hanna, celebrity zookeeper, raised $100 K to save Marius and worked to keep a second giraffe from being killed. He calls the slaughter an "abomination." Please sign my petition:http://www.thepetitionsite.com/684/249/34 2/in-honor-of-marius/

GOOD MAN!

In this vid we see Bengt Holst sheepishly justifying his actions!
He keeps his eyes hidden.

I hope, if the Danes won't listen to our opinions, they will begin to listen to the experts. The unnecessary killing and barbaric public dissection must stop.

Years ago in Ohio we had a "Save The Doves" campaign. We wanted to make dove hunting illegal in the state. We worked hard to get it on the ballot. Jack Hanna sided with the hunters; he did commercials and asked people to vote AGAINST the doves! Ever since then I cannot stand the man. He is nothing but a figure head anyway; I think he got his degree in accounting or something.

I am in agreement with Mr Hanna. It was an abomination to kill a healthy young giraffe for no good reason, especially when other zoos offered to take him in. The zoo which killed him should be put out of business. It is not a good place at all.

NOTED! OH BOY, YES HE WAS. HE IS NORMALLY SUCH A SOFT SPOKEN MAN BUT HIS FACE WAS AS RED AS A BEET AND AT ONE POINT HE ALMOST SLIPPED UP AND SWORE BUT CAUGHT HIMSELF IN TIME. HE IS AS MORTIFIED AS THE REST OF US! i ALSO WANT TO COMMEND AND GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO EVERY WHO CHANGE THEIR AVATAR TO PAY HOMAGE TO A BEAUTIFUL AND INNOCENT ANIMAL WHO BUT FOR ONLY ONE REASON HE WAS KILLED WAS SHEER EVIL, PERIOD AS NO OTHER EXCUSE WAS VALID IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM!

Thank goodness for Jack Hanna, now Marius 2 will be saved. If only we had him for Marius 1. I tried to sign your petition Elke but it kept coming up "moved"! Thanks for this Elke.

Thank you AniMae for the link to the CNN interview with Bengt Holst regarding Marius's death. He thinks we are out of order to be upset, that they put down 20 to 30 animals a year they call surplus! He was so callous about it, I'm afraid we will have no affect on him.

I thought the Jack Hanna page had a link to a petition, but couldn't find it. I note the remarks about the doves.

Love Jack Hanna-one of the people who inspired me to get into biology as a kid:)
