    Justice for Harambe

    There are calls for the parents of the 4 year old to be held responsible for the death of the gorilla following the child getting into the animal's enclosure.

    Fury after gorilla shot when boy crawled into enclosure


    What about the Zoo's barrier ?

    I don't know whether the shooting was an over reaction of whether the child's life was in imminent danger but, as you say, questions have got to be asked as to how boy got into the enclosure and how carefully the parents were watching.

    Child falls into gorilla enclosure in the UK, gorilla pronounced a hero and has a statue cast in bronze... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jambo

    Child falls into gorilla enclosure in pre-Homeland-Security America, gorilla pronounced a hero... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binti_Jua

    America exists today in a state of abject self-induced terror.

    Gorillas don't kill defenceless children, unmanned combat aerial vehicle pilots kill defenceless children.

    Cincinnati Zoo is an utter disgrace and as such represents post-Bush America perfectly.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Woweee !!!!
    Child squeezing through an inadequate barrier and the resulting over reaction by gorilla experts is the result of America's foreign policy ?

    "Jambo stood guard over the boy when he was unconscious, placing himself between the boy and other gorillas" The other gorillas were not dangerous then ?

    If my four year old child had been dragged around in water as seen on the video, I would have been fearful of the outcome myself. Whether the gorilla had intention to harm the child or not.

    Re: Justice for Harambe

    Got in to an interesting discussion about that, elsewhere.
    Watching the video, I think the Gorilla got extremely agitated by all the shrieking and screaming of spectators, and the zoo people felt he was becoming unstable. It really is sad that they felt the need to kill him.
    Yes, the parents should have been watching the kid better. On the other hand, if you have been around many 4-year-olds, you probably know that they have a knack for taking advantage of that split-second that nobody actually has an eye on them to execute the most devious plan they can devise. The zoo does need to figure out how the enclosure was breached, and improve their defenses.

    On the other hand, I think the zoos should implement a policy of animals first in such cases. If your brats strays into animal territory, they are considered forfeit.
    In the sixties, in Florida, a wild animal park called Lion Country Safari opened up. They had signs at the boundaries that read "Private Property. Trespassers will be eaten" and along the visitor routes that read, "warning: Stray children will be eaten."

    Of course, these days, people might find it the perfect opportunity to dispose of unwanted rugrats.

    Re: Justice for Harambe

    Should the parents be held responsible?

    The child told his parents several times he was going to go into the enclosure.

    One should've had a tight hold on that child.

    For the avoidance of doubt, and if we can also factor in the hysterical onlooker reaction, yes it is. Definitively and without any question whatever. Why else do you think America changed so radically.

    You don't know what you're talking about, & acting like you do doesn't make it so.

    There was no crowd hysteria?

    The gorilla's alive?

    That isn't what I quoted you as saying, my response was for your opinion, not the fact of the gorilla being dead. The onlookers were noisy, it is your judgement they were 'hysterical.' Are you being deliberately obtuse, or should I think the worst?

    eta--reports of hysteria were mostly found in British & European press, & you have no proof anyone anywhere would have behaved differently in such a situation.
