Autopsy of Marius the giraffe (Warning explicit photos)

Yesterday Copenhagen Zoo shot and performed an autopsy on one of their giraffes named Marius. The zoo hadn't been able to find a suitable new home for the 18 month old male giraffe so they saw shooting it as their only option. Something that have sparked a lot of anger around the world.

I covered the autopsy of Marius in Copenhagen Zoo and thanks to Polfoto and the Associated Press my photos of the events have already made it to The New York Times, The Guardian, Washington Post, USA Today and many other newspapers around the globe.  

Primarily only one or two of the photos that made it out there, so here is a small selection. But don't look if you are not prepared to se graphic photos of a dead giraffe.
