4 lion killed

 

 

丹麥哥本哈根動物園處死了四頭獅子,包括一雌一雄老年獅子及兩頭幼雄獅。該園將引入一頭年輕雄獅,以野生獅子的習性,新雄獅會殺掉非牠的幼雄獅,老年雄獅會把新雄獅的孩子殺死,而老年雌獅亦不宜再生育。園方稱沒其他地方願接收牠們,才決定處死。

4 lions were killed at the Copenhagen Zoo in Denmark to avoid inbreeding after they killed a healthy giraffe not long ago. two of these lions are old, adult and the other two are young. the zoo is bringing in a new male to the zoo, and usually in the wild, the new male in the pride would killed the immature males, the old female is too old to give birth and the older male would killed any cubs fathered by the new male. therefore, the zoo has decided to kill these two healthy lions. they claimed they were unable to find a new home for them.
