    Farasi The Hippo Will Not Be Fed To Zoo's Big Cats (VIDEO)


    "Farasi,It sounds like a Muslem Hippo. Just make it wear a Hijab,send it to Saudi Arabia,teach it to walk on its tiptoes and some Arab Sheikh will add it to his haram !"

    Switzerland -- A Swiss zoo on Friday rejected suggestions that a baby hippopotamus could be killed and fed to the big cats because of lack of space.

    Basel Zoo said hippo Farasi, who was born in November and has since become one of its star attractions, will stay in the zoo until a place is found for him elsewhere.
    "We're confident we'll find a place for him," said spokeswoman Tanja Dietrich. Media reports that Farasi will be euthanized for lack of space were misleading, she told The Associated Press.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that if zoo officials do not find a place for Farasi, they might kill him and put him into the nearby tiger cage _ an allegation Dietrich rejected.

    I know. How terrible. They should make those cats in to vegans anyhow.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
