Guido Forcefully Split From Gay Partner
Gays protest | The Times (£)
Members of Germany’s gay community are outraged after a homosexual couple were forcibly parted and made to mate with females.
Guido and Detlef have become the poster boys for protests against intolerance, even though they are both predatory males.
Guido, transferred 650km (400 miles) east to a zoo in Ostrava, in the Czech Republic, is also reportedly not too enamoured with the heterosexual lifestyle that is being forced upon him.
...the Roman Catholic Church in the arch conservative area of Münsterland is jubilant. There has been one protest near the zoo gates by a small group of homosexuals standing beneath a rainbow flag, while the German blogosphere is buzzing. “This is like in the Dark Middle Ages, forcibly making a creature sexually reorient itself by tearing its partner from its side,” wrote one campaigner.
The griffon vultures, Gyps fulvus, showed no interest in female company. They were happy in their own world, grooming one another with tender sweeps of their savage beaks between rearranging the sticks that made up their nest.
"Live and let live" obviously hasn't fully caught on yet in The Fatherland
