A team of forensic psychologists are planning to assemble in The Netherlands.
To have Bengt Holst, the director of the Copenhagen zoo, declared legally insane or have him brought up on animal cruelty charges or to have him declared incompetent and unable to work at anything but menial jobs.
Local law enforcement agents are considering having Holst brought forward for a competency hearing and they too are considering charging him with not only cruelty to animals, but for racketeering for cruelty to animals with the intent to gain fame or notoriety.
According to a statement released by the newly-formed committee, Holst has… “…committed a grievous offense and for that he should either be sent for a complete psychological examination or he should be punished without mercy for his crimes against the animals in his charge — chief among them being the giraffe “Marius” which he had brutally killed and publicly dissected in what amounted to something akin to a grand spectacle worthy of the ancient Roman Colosseum.”
“The problem has NOTHING to do with the giraffe’s meat being fed to the lions. The problem is that Marius’ keepers — humans he seemed to trust — shot the giraffe in the head and ghoulishly dissected that giraffe in front of zoo visitors.” said Dr. Raymond Totondi, a Zoologist and Human Behaviorist in Rome.
“The reason they gave for shooting the giraffe was horrific. Bengt Holst believed that Marius already had genes that were well-represented at the zoo and they didn’t want to risk inbreeding — in other words, they didn’t like his genetic makeup — so he ordered him killed him in spite of the fact that many zoos throughout Europe and the world offered to take him.”
As if all of this weren’t sufficiently horrific, Bengt Holst is now being viewed as madman on a sick rampage because he has now — several weeks after he fed Marius to the lions — decided that those very lions too need to die because he is, “not in the business of raising lion cubs.”
“Something is terribly wrong with this zoo and the people who run it, said a Canadian zoologist who spoke under conditions of anonymity.
“I am not a psychologist, and perhaps I should not even be saying this, but Bengt Holst is a mentally sick individual who should not be allowed to lord over any zoo or any place where the welfare of animals is a concern. He should be fired from his job at the Copenhagen zoo and she should be charged as a criminal. What he did to that giraffe was not only cruel to the animal, but it seemed as though Holst was enjoying being cruel to the thousands of people — mostly children — who begged that the giraffe not be killed.
“There were plenty of options open to Holst — even an doffer of $600.000US from a European buyer, but Holst refused and opted instead to kill the animal as though he was the star of some demented reality show. To me this shows that he is a sociopath of some kind. I realize again that I am not a psychologist, but many on the panel who are indeed psychologists and psychiatrists, believe that Holst is indeed a sociopath and when I call him one, I am simply restating what I have been told by experts.”
Hollywood TV writer and zoologist, Dave Mattia , a man who usually treads lightly on touchy subjects like this, had this to say about the meeting in the Netherlands.
“In my opinion, Bengt Holst, the administrator of the zoo, assembled paid stooges — friends and friends of friends — to watch this creep show in an attempt to legitimize what he planned on doing. Any notion that these people were truly “invited” is untrue. If they were indeed curious observers, they were truly sick people who might very well have tampered cruelly with the minds of their children.
“In spite of death threats against him and his staff and 47,000 or more names on a petition (most from Denmark and The Netherlands) to NOT kill the giraffe, and video requests from children throughout Europe begging him to not kill Marius, Holst went bananas and turned the entire thing into a macabre spectacle simply because he wanted to spite his detractors. That’s not my OPINION — that is the opinion of the Zoological Society of The Netherlands and the London Zoo.
“Holst’s fetid frustrations – whatever they may be — have overcome his judgement. Again, these are not MY words, these are the words of zoologists and zoological administrators throughout Europe. They’re calling for his head on the chopping block. They’re saying he is a madman and some on staff at the zoo who participated in this and are affiliated with other zoological endeavors will find themselves jobless in a few days.
“And the children. What about the children?
“This was a traumatic thing for a child to see, I’m sorry but I have to question the psychological machinations of anyone who thinks that this was a healthy thing to do to children — and some very strange people seem to think it was a splendid lesson for children to learn. But these are ordinary children — not Children of the Corn.
“One very nutty American woman who works in racehorse rescue called it “enlightening” and “wonderful for children to learn about the circle of life” but it was not about any circle of life. It was about one man’s alleged insanity and a new slant on the old PT Barnum technique of getting people to patronize his zoo. How can this woman be in charge of the welfare of racehorses rescued from the racetrack. Perhaps she likes dead animals and suffering animals. You never know what might be a person’s motivations.”
With regards to the committee in The Netherlands, when one commits a criminal act — and hopefully the authorities in Denmark will find this to be a criminal act — and one’s business benefits from said criminal act, one can and often will be charged with criminal racketeering.
Dave Mattia continued:
“In my opinion, it was, what it was — a sickening spectacle brought to you by an allegedly crazy man who has ordained himself with the divine providence to determine which animals live and which animals die as per his own edicts and opinions and his ability to kill without concern.
“You have people on Facebook and other social media — idiotic people — talking about where meat comes from and children being enriched by learning about dead animals and other overly simplistic and frankly deranged opinions, when this is not the issue at all.
“The issue is how the giraffe named Marius came to be blast-bolted in the head, and then quartered with butchering knives under the guise of performing a necropsy, so as to feed lions which in turn were later killed as well by the same executive order that came down from the office of Bengt Holst, who, in my opinion, is either out of his mind or common people who simply do not understand the highly strange and macabre aspects that surround this cruel and unusual display of hubris and perhaps insanity”

The goal of the Committee meeting in The Netherlands is to have Holst declared insane or be brought before a board of government appointed psychologists so as to determine if he is a danger to himself or to people or to animals. This kind of thing is done all the time when families want to have a loved one put away because of psychologically inappropriate behavior. Holst will get the same treatment as the average person who is dragged in for a competency hearing, but the odds of him coming out of this unscathed are very slim. He will either be found to have some kind of mental illness which requires inpatient or outpatient psychiatric care, or, at the very least, he will lose his job and perhaps never again be allowed to work in a zoo or any kind.
