Freya the walrus: Did she have to be euthanised?

After becoming a tourist attraction in Oslo, a travelling walrus was killed. Was that right? …

But then, says Mads Frost Bertelsen, the Zoological Director at Copenhagen Zoo, that is not surprising. Walruses tend to live in remote areas, which means they don’t often come into contact with humans. This means statistics on incidents are low – but, he points out, they are capable of inflicting “serious damage”.
