Outrage as Danish zoo dissects lion in front of children

The nine-month-old lion was one of three that Odense Zoo in central Denmark put down in February, on the grounds it had too many big cats and could not find a home for the surplus. Last year, a zoo in the capital Copenhagen came under fire after a healthy giraffe was euthanised and dissected in public.
