Yesterday, officials at the Cincinnati Zoo made the decision to kill a 17-year-old Silverback gorilla named Harambe after a toddler managed to fall into the gorilla's enclosure.
Luckily for the kid, he left that enclosure with only minor bumps and bruises. Not so lucky for Harambe.
What I wanna know is, what was the kid's MOTHER doing while her little boy was crawling under a fence and making his way through vegetation, then falling damn near 10 feet down into a moat????? I mean, really, WHAT was she DOING????? And I only mention the mother because I can only hear her calling out to the little boy while he's in the moat.
After viewing the video footage, I certainly see why there was much concern for the child's safety. But, dang, I still wish there was some way to save the gorilla's life.
