Click Nej on poll. They state it was ok to kill him. It was not. If you can't understand this language Ja means yes and Nej means no. Click Nej on poll. It was not right they did this. They had options to save his life and they refused.

Following a statement from the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria confirming that Jyllands Park Zoo, who had threatened to kill “Marius 2” if they were able to acquire a female giraffe to replace him, was not approved to be part of a breeding programme for the species, the zoo has said that Marius will not be killed.

@Borg Drone: Thank you for reporting this newest bit of info, but I don't trust them at all. They're trying to say it was never their intention and blaming the media and the public for saying they were going to kill Marius2. That's BS. They were absolutely threatening to kill Marius2, they didn't get the female they wanted to acquire, for now, and that's why they're sparing him for now. I'm afraid they'll kill him in private, trying to keep it from the public now that all this excitement, if you will, has been happening. We must come together in enormous numbers to close ALL zoos. We have to stop wild animals from being taken from their habitats, imprisoned and profited from monetarily, from zookeepers, etc. Can you imagine what it must feel like to be captured and held in captivity for the rest of your life, and also being neglected in many cases, as we've all seen happen to so many zoo and circus animals? Circuses should also be eliminated. The employees of zoos and circuses could then be employed as animal conservationists and not jailers.

Noted and Voted "Nej" (obviously). Two possible scenarios for the high "yes" vote ............
1. People who accessed this poll from elsewhere, didn't have the differences explained to them (as we did).
2. As (apparently) multiple voting IS being accepted, someone is spending an awful lot of time "pumping-up" the YES votes !!!! Seeing the numbers of signatures on ALL the petitions, both for Marius-1 and Marius-2, it just is NOT POSSIBLE that the votes for "Ja" are coming from genuine and informed people !!

Thanks for the "update" Borg .... it reinforces my determination to CONTINUE with the fight - I don't trust their statement (it's ambiguous, at very least) as it only covers NOW and makes no illusion to the scenario, if another female did become available to them. The original reports actually gave their reasons for future killing of Marius (should they get another female) - they want to avoid possible FIGHTS between him and other "suitors" ......... so this story wasn't just an "invention" of the media, as they're now claiming .........

Have just noticed subtle differences in the "texts" copied and pasted in some comments above ............
"Tak for din stemme! " AND "Tak, vi har allerede registreret din stemme! " ........
Now I don't actually speak "that" language, but it is fairly similar to German (which I understand, but am a little "rusty"). Could it be that the shorter one is "Thank you for your vote" and the longer one means "Thank you but we have already registered your vote" ?? Just a thought .....

I voted Ja. Why? Inbreeding is far worse a fate for a giraffe or any other animal(including humans). Once genetic diversity is disabled, all kinds of deformities(mental and physical) and very disease prone both viruses and bacteria.

This is so bad/wrong.Wrong!!
I don't trust that they would not kill any animal there. they don't care.
I don't understand the amount of yes's. Even if people doing it over and over again there's something absolutely disturbing about them. Those people/morons as Candy stated have something wrong with them if they thing It's fun to vote the way they are.

Someone needs to go in there and CLOSE the zoo ASAP!! Close it now!

Heidi Aubrey ..... Friday February 14, 2014, 9:48 pm ..........
Whilst I can see your TWISTED logic ..... what you are saying does NOT apply in the case of Marius (and many other animals) !!! All it needed was for him to be either MOVED to another location and integrated into another herd (with different genes), or NEUTERED to avoid inbreeding. THERE WAS NO NEED FOR HIM TO DIE as both of these options were available !!! I wonder how you feel about Susi the wolf - a special wolf (living in the wild) with very RARE genes - who has had her past two mates hunted down and killed, and is under threat of being killed herself now, together with her latest mate ??? An entirely different scenario and yet people want to KILL her, despite the fact she is NEEDED to add to a diverse gene pool for the overall good of wolves .......... the current policies of KILL KILL KILL for "convenience" is ABHORRENT in both cases !!!!

The two things (well, more than TWO things!) that come to mind are: WHO creates such a poll? And, WHO in their right mind votes 'yes' on having an innocent, healthy juvenile giraffe killed as a 'surplus' animal in which is fed to other animals in that zoo in front of children as if it meant nothing at all. This is a shameful way to try to justify the negative actions of the people who are responsible for this particular giraffe's death. Did the zoo staff even give one thought to how its mother must be grieving? According to other articles I've read, this is NOT the first time this zoo has done this - another disgusting thought. It's unfathomable - it reminds me as to WHY there is so much cruelty towards animals because some cultures/people have been brainwashed into thinking that this kind of killing is acceptable... I say NOT! And, if one looked at the number of people that signed the petitions that were circulating - many people from around the world agreed that it's UNacceptable.

'inbreeding' IS A PATHETIC EXCUSE. THE ZOO DIRECTORS KNOW VERY WELL THEY CAN STERILIZE ANIMALS. The 'inbreeding' concerns result directly from keeping animals in capticity.
The problem is zoos!! Not 'surplus'. Wild animals are imprisoned for life and zoos profit. Zoo directors make quite a lot of money and keeping 'costs' down, like using animal sacrifice to feed other animals is not at all the way of the wild. It's degenerate killing of defenseless animals, supposedly in the care of the zoo. Zoo directors are not obliged to make use of European zoo association, unethical, rules!!!!
The ulesmust be changed. Many animals are being killed in European zoos because the Association of European zoos allows the killing animals labeled as 'surplus'.
This is deplorable and encourages abuse.
People, stray dogs, etc., might all be labeled 'surplus' --- revolting!
This is abuse of 'authority' and the AEZA (Assoc European Zoo Animals) must be held accountable and demand contraception and penalize zoos that kill animals that are perfectly healthy and have options to go elsewhere, as a last resort. Carving up a young giraffe in front of children is abominable. The zoo director needs to be fired, regardless of AEZA rules. He cannot use that for such despicable action.
There is a petition to AEZA on the petition site. Please sign to change the Laws NOW.

THIS IS FROM PETA

Thank you for reaching out to us about this. Dying zoos often breed giraffes and other "exotic" animals in captivity and create babies in an effort to keep drawing in paying visitors – yet often, there's nowhere to put the offspring as they grow. Wildlife documentaries have opened people's eyes to the fact that a zoo is just an animal prison dating back to a time when only intrepid explorers had seen animals from other continents. This death should be a wake-up call for anyone who still harbours the illusion that zoos serve any purpose beyond incarcerating intelligent animals for profit. Giraffes rarely die of old age in captivity, and had Marius not been euthanized, he would have lived out his short life as a living exhibit, stranded in a cold climate, thousands of miles away from his true home. Breeding programmes serve no true conservation purpose because giraffes and other animals born in zoos are rarely, if ever, returned to their natural habitats. They are treated as baby-makers, as visitor attractions in a zoo's "swap-and-shop" programme, while giving the public a false sense that something wonderful has happened. PETA urges everyone who genuinely cares about giraffes and all the other individuals serving life sentences in zoos to avoid patronizing them and instead donate to campaigns that actually protect animals in their native habitats. Thanks again for your compassion.

I've just checked with 3 translation sites and it seem my fears were well-founded - some of our efforts (with voting several times) are being wasted ..... see below ......

"Tak for din stemme! " AND "Tak, vi har allerede registreret din stemme! " .... translate to .....

"Thanks for voting!" AND "Thank you, we have already recorded your voice!" ........

What we need to do is find OTHER people (or OTHER e-mail addresses) to do future votes with - come on, many of us have more than one e-mail address and/or know people on internet who don't usually do this type of thing, but would be willing to help us out .... RACK YOUR BRAINS, call in a few favours and let's get some more of those SHORT answers, which mean our votes are BEING COUNTED !!!!!! This poll is important from the point of view that the results MUST show the TRUE feelings of people WORLDWIDE about this despicable act ...... and that we WILL NOT stand for it happening again !!!!!

Those that have twitter accounts we have been doing twitter storms. Captain Watson has spoken out against this atrocity and is now under attack on facebook. Keep up the pressure. They were going to kill another Marius (must be a popular name there) but now CLAIM they are not going to.
 

Kathy Chadwell (371)
Monday February 17, 2014, 8:25 pm
http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/15/world/europe/denmark-zoo-giraffe/
(CNN) -- The decision by Copenhagen Zoo in Denmark to kill one of its giraffes last weekend sparked anguish. The news four days later that a second Danish zoo might follow suit prompted howls of outrage.

But Jyllands Park Zoo has now said that those fears are groundless. In a statement on its official Facebook page, under the heading "Problem solved," it said the giraffe's future was assured.

The zoo said Thursday it might also have to "euthanize" one of its male giraffes -- which coincidentally shares the name Marius with the giraffe that was killed -- if a female was brought in to breed.

But it now says the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria -- a body governing 345 institutions -- has no plans to send a female "any time soon."

As a result, the zoo said, it would "of course keep both our giraffes, as we have stated all along. There is no plan, and there has never been a plan to neither move or euthanize any of our giraffes."

Thanks for the input Kathy ....... I've read all the articles I could find about this and have come to the conclusion that Jyllands Park Zoo ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED (full stop) !!! In my opinion they are just "playing for time" and waiting for things to "blow over" and, in the meantime are just shovelling out whatever BS suits their purposes at that time !!! The last paragraph of your post shows them up for what they are ............ "As a result, the zoo said, it would "of course keep both our giraffes, as we have stated all along. There is no plan, and there has never been a plan to neither move or euthanize any of our giraffes." ........
Complete contradiction of what they had said earlier in another report which explicitly said they WOULD euthanize Marius (2) if instructed to do so ......... and gave their reasons (risk of him fighting with another suitor) when a female is introduced to their zoo) ..... and NOW they say there never was any such plan ??? They must have a lot of BULLS in their zoo .... judging by the amount of BS they are "dishing out" !!! We must keep fighting, on all fronts possible to put a stop to these HORRIFIC practices (sadly so widespread, but so little known about UNTIL NOW ) !!!!!!!!!!

We are not here to amass money, to take pleasures at other species expense, to destroy and take and dominate...we are here to protect those who can feel pain, from harm. That's it. That's our mission.
We as mankind will be our own downfall, if we do not stop the destruction we are doing to our planet and it's wildlife
