A zoo that fed one of its beloved giraffes to a pack of carnivorous animals after it died has defended itself by saying ‘it would happen in nature’.

Ostrava zoo in the Czech Republic was flooded with complaints after posting a picture on social media of a lion devouring an animal’s corpse alongside the news that its elderly, 19-year-old Rothschild giraffe had been put down.

Zoo spokeswoman Šárka Nováková said: ‘The giraffe first fell down, was breathing heavily and did not get up again.

‘Everything pointed to heart failure. Due to the general condition, hypoxia, age and stress of the animal, we proceeded to euthanize it.’

Writing on Facebook, the zoo added: ‘Meat from more than 300kg animal was used as food for domestic animals and other carnivores, as it would happen in nature.’
