4Old animals and useless animals are killed and used for other reasons
Among pictures, zoos don’t want you to see are such images like the one below. In most zoos, the custom is to put down old animals who cannot reproduce or are too old to be an entertainment factor. In certain countries, animals are sold off to lesser zoos which could have a potentially worse environment. The giraffe in this image is that of Marius a young and healthy giraffe in Copenhagen zoo who was shot by a vet and dissected in public view and thrown to lions. His problem? He was useless for breeding because his genes were too common.
