He said some animals such as goats and guinea pigs are killed as food for predators, but without "making a show" of this, and that the killing of animals has been more accepted in Scandinavian zoos for a number of years, but he did not know the exact reasoning behind the Copenhagen Zoo's decisions. Moscow Zoo in Russia condemned the actions, saying it did not support killing policies and instead favoured sterilization. It also expressed concern for the potential harm to children who attended the dissection.
Nuremberg Zoo in Germany supported the Copenhagen Zoo's actions. Director Dag Encke noted that giraffes had more emotional appeal than some other species and that the policy and actions had been well considered. With regard to the public dissection, he commented that children tended to have a natural curiosity, provided that everything was well explained. The director of Prague Zoo in the Czech Republic criticized the public dissection, saying it " However he also wrote that the killing should be evaluated "after a necessary interval and from a number of perspectives.
A vet at Safaripark Beekse Bergen in the Netherlands said killing is considered less objectionable by Scandinavian zoos than by Dutch zoos, which instead choose to use bachelor herds and birth control. The South Lakes Wild Animal Park in England supported the policy, writing that Copenhagen Zoo "has a very strict welfare and ethics record and is a very highly regarded zoo in every aspect. Dyrenes Beskyttelse , a Danish animal protection organization, said that it trusts the decisions made by the zoo and pointed at the issue of the large number of other authorized killings of animals in society, in general, such as piglets and stags.
Denmark's Organisation Against the Suffering of Animals repudiated the action as unethical, saying:. The Born Free Foundation called for,. Esther Ouwehand , Member of the Dutch Parliament for the Party for the Animals asked the State Secretary for Economic Affairs for clarification on the practice in Dutch Zoos and request for more strict European regulation on breeding programs.
Members of the public started an international online petition directed at the Copenhagen Zoo to save Marius.

Copenhagen Zoo managers confirmed that staff, including its head of conservation, received death threats by phone and email following the killing of Marius. Concerns were raised by Psychology Today regarding the precise educational benefit to children of attending the public dissection of an animal which they had previously petted. An article "What we Learned From Marius"  expressed outrage and distaste, and insisted that the children would only learn that killing animals for entertainment was legitimate.
The reported events quickly gained attention in many countries, and some examples from entries in the public debate are given below. Jack Hanna , director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium , criticized the zoo's actions to kill Marius, calling it "abominable, insensitive, grotesque". Ben Fogle , British broadcaster and adventurer, criticized the "shocking lack of compassion" in the dealing with zoo animals as the result of unsuitable funds for many contemporary zoo institutions . Alan Posener , British-German columnist, condemned the killing and dissection as a sort of entertainment, which he saw as based on a fascination of violence.
To him, a zoo strategy built on Disney-like fairy-tales was actually preferable to instruction in emotionless and patronizing Darwinism . Robert Young, professor of Wildlife Conservation at the University of Salford , wrote that the case illustrated cultural and institutional differences in how zoos weigh aspects of the animals' quality of life.

He discussed how some zoos may favour sterilization and increased longevity. Copenhagen Zoo, however, favours non-sterilization, fewer constraints on breeding and full periods of parenthood, though at the risk of shorter lives for the offspring. Victoria Martindale, British animal activist, wrote that the case illustrated how zoos were basically unnatural surroundings for animals, and that the early death liberated Marius from "years of imprisonment".
Brendan O'Neill , a British-born editor, criticized mass media presentation of the events as an example of sensationalist press tendencies.
Marc Bekoff , Professor Emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder , said: "The cold justification for these killings offered by zoo workers chilled and scared me. Furthermore, these easily avoidable deaths, perversely justified "in the name of conservation," are horrible lessons for youngsters and run counter to global programs in humane education and compassionate conservation.
This is a great opportunity for members to share their experiences, both good and bad, with other members. We believe that this is also a fantastic opportunity for our restaurants to assess feedback, and if necessary make improvements and take feedback on-board. Previously, if members wished to review a restaurant they were likely to visit another website to do so.
This may have meant that the reviews were less accessible to yourselves, as restaurateurs, and thus you would have been less likely to act upon the review, be it good or bad.
