Danish zoo says has no plans to kill second giraffe named Marius

Jyllands Park Zoo in Western Denmark has said it has no plans to kill a giraffe named Marius, in response to outrage days after Copenhagen Zoo put down a young male giraffe with the same name. 

 

Jyllands Park Zoo had said that, like the Copenhagen zoo, the move would be to meet with breeding program rules. But the zoo now says it has no such plans, for the immediate future at least. (Reuters)
