Top definition
The action of a zoo putting down a perfectly healthy animal because they have become "surplus". Examples of this are Marius the Giraffe and the nine lion cubs a zoo in Sweden admitted to euthanizing. Usually a cowardly act put forth by zoos which probably shouldn't be allowed to run in the first place.
That zoo performs zoothanasia.
