What do you think about Gorilla Shot in Cincinnati Zoo to save Boy?
What is your thought on the incident in the Cincinnati Zoo where this Gorilla was Shot Dead because a Boy had fallen into his enclosure.
Do you think the Mother of the Child should be criminally charged for Child neglect?
Do you think they could have tried other means such as tranquilizing the Gorilla?
I think the poor Gorilla did not do anything wrong to deserve to be Killed :(
Let me you tell this is not uncommon, I have seen so many irresponsible parents who would just abandon their child in a supermarket or anywhere. I've even seen a mother smoking a cigarette crossing a main road and not holding the hand of her toddler who was several feet behind her.
Have you ever been to the Cincinnati Zoo? You have to deliberately try to get into the enclosure.
A tranquilizer shot would have just pissed the gorilla off until it took effect.
The silver back gorilla can crush a coconut with one hand.
Know the facts before passing judgement.
I am certain that the majority of animal lovers were saddened when they saw the Gorilla shot dead. I am also certain that the whole world was relieved that the small child was not harmed. It was a bad situation full of diabolical coincidences. The Zoo keepers did not have much time, to plan for a diversion, or a distraction, to rescue the poor child. It was a time for quick thinking. A tranquilizer shot may not have been effective. So they decided to shoot him dead.
It's sad the Gorilla was shot but they are the professionals so they did what they thought best.
You can't blame the parents it's the zoo's responsibility to make sure no one gets in like all health and safety
