The video said the mom had several kids ...so I'm not surprised no one likely paid attention when the kid fell .....go to any store or mall and see parents letting their kids roam, even very small kids ...no one is often watching them...sad the gorilla got shot...I recently saw a lady with 6 small kids...maybe all her own...why does anyone need 6 kids?

I assume the kid now has to live in the Gorilla habitat as a replacement.

No. That is nonsense perpetuated by racist websites -- I mean, other than the fact that humanity itself will go extinct one day. Europeans are currently not on any endangered species list, and they aren't expected to be on one any time soon.

Oh THAT kind of leash law! I thought he meant zoos and carnivals should be kept on leashes somehow.

Trouble picturing that.

Parents wouldn't take their kids there if they had to be on a leash. Idiotic idea.

No no no... you have it back assward. Put the parents on the leash, attached to the hands of their kids. ;)

But at a zoo - unless the parent threw the 4yo over the barrier, IMO - the zoo is at fault. Too bad for he gorilla. Should they have shot the kid instead?

I tend to agree. When I used to go to the zoo (before they started charging a fee just to drive toward the damn thing), I noticed over time a progression of smaller-and-smaller barriers between the visitor and the animals. They used to have fences you needed to look through; then they took those away and put up a double fence; then they took those away and put up a single fence. It's been years since I was last there, so I can only assume they now actually pick you up and place you on top of the animals you want to see.

Come to think of it, last time I was there I reached out and poked a jaguar with my finger. I shouldn't have, but I was able to, so I did. Because stupid people; people, me; therefore stupid me. (Pissed that little fanged thing off, too. Zoo attendants came running. I pretended not to know what the cat was angry about. They said the cat got mad "for no reason" all the time, and that he was in a particularly bad mood at that time. I assumed he was getting poked by a lot of stupid people with fingers.)

Maynard said that the child crawled over a 3-foot barrier, crawled through bushes and fell approximately 15 feet into the gorilla’s enclosure, which is surrounded by a moat filled with 1.5 feet of water.

“This child was being dragged around. His head was banging on concrete,” Maynard said. “This was not a gentle thing. The child was at risk.”

...

“Naturally, we did not take the shooting of Harambe lightly, but that child’s life was in danger,” he said. “People who question that, or are Monday-morning quarterbacks or second-guessers, don’t understand that you can’t take a risk with a silverback gorilla.”

“We’re talking about an animal, who with one hand -- I’ve seen take a coconut and crunch it,” Maynard said.

Despite questions about the safety of the exhibit, Maynard insisted Monday that it is safe to the public.

“The exhibit is safe. We’re inspected both by the USDA and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums,” Maynard said. “The barriers are safe and exceed any of the required protocols.”

When asked where the zoo places blame, Maynard responded, “I’m not a big finger-pointer. Politicians and pundits point fingers. We live in the real world and we make real decisions. People, kids and others can climb over barriers.”

Oops. Let's be careful here -- I wouldn't know a jaguar from a civet cat. There's a 99% chance it was not a jaguar.

So just a three foot fence? No concertina wire on top? My three year old grandson is strong enough to climb upon my shoulders when I am standing straight. He has a climbing wall at home with vertical and three successively difficult overhanging angled sections, and he climbs to the top of each (10ft or so) with only a mat in case he should fall. The only good thing about a three foot fence is that it normally wouldn`t be a sufficient challenge for a three year old. Need to shoot the zoo director... or maybe just shut down that zoo.

"Maynard responded, “I’m not a big finger-pointer." ///// Most irresponsible douchebags aren't. TOTALLY the zoo's fault. My sister tried to pet a monkey that was wandering the grounds at a zoo once. It bit her in the arm. Been afraid of animals ever since.

Yeah......fun to consider. Dangerously rare "X" vs fungible hooman beings. A gorilla this time, what about the last pregnant gorilla in existence? What if the parent had yelled: don't shoot the gorilla? What if in addition you had to shoot through a picture of THE Mona Lisa? What when gorillas are given the status of personhood? That silverback certainly looked sentient to me.

Ah well, freeze the sperm. Our future looks so bright.

.......which only causes the question to be asked again?

While every sperm is precious, and the Mom does strike me as well motivated as most human beings can be, will we track this kiddie into the future and see him become a Silver Back himself preying on his fellow citizens??

Actually..................the Gorilla needed to be killed..... as the kiddie deserves his fair shot at a life well lived. There are other dangers that take kiddies lives that I think do need to be protected though. So called "Attractive Nuisances" like neighbors swimming pools that don't have Child Proof Fences and the like. My neighbor on 2 acres had a tractor he played with. Different row crops each year...planted, gleaned, and plowed under. He dug a small pond that filled in with natural ground water. Bamboo grew. Frogs and minnows appeared. ducks fed on it. He filled it in to avoid having local kiddies drown in it. UNLIKE THE PROTECTIVE APE...I say such child killers should be encouraged in our society. The joy of nature would benefit the majority while natural selection would work on the rest.

But we aren't going in that direction. I pity the kiddies.

If it had been an albino gorilla, it would still be alive but since it was black and was of African origin, it was shot. Only in America.

Not that it matters IMO - but from my observation, the kid and parents were of color, as was the gorilla. :oops:

Not that it matters IMO - but from my observation, the kid and parents were of color, as was the gorilla. :oops:
All I saw was a kid and a gorilla. I think the gorilla was sort of grey with white parts. Other than that, colour? Who gives {!#%@}?

Had the child gotten into the lions, tigers, or bears exhibit nobody would question the act of shooting the animal to save the child.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
