After Marius the Giraffe, Copenhagen Zoo Kills Family of Lions

The Danish zoo says there is no choice - the old lions lost their place, little ones would have been eaten by new male.

The circle of life, indeed. Last month the Copenhagen Zoo killed a giraffe, cut it up in front of a crowd and fed it to the lions. Now it's killed a family of four lions for the sake of what it says is the natural order, The Guardian reported Tuesday.
