The family of a boy who entered a Cincinnati Zoo gorilla’s enclosure last weekend — spurring zoo officials to shoot and kill the animal — will be the focus of an investigation into the incident, Cincinnati police said Tuesday. [SOURCE]
Why is the family being investigated is my question.
Do know this is not the first time that a child has managed to get inside a Gorilla complex. But this incident is taking a racial turn and has some calloused overtones that reveal we live among some scary ass folks.
The gorilla was killed in this incident as a precaution to ensure the child could be rescued safely. I love animals but in this instance, I will be the first to tell you this was the right decision.
There have been suggestions that the gorilla should have been tranquilized. The problem with tranquilizers is the target might not drop off immediately. Shoot a 450-pound gorilla with a tranquilizer and don’t get it right you’re going to have a mad 450 pound Mofo running around a helpless child. When the meds kick in he could fall on the child.
You don’t roll the dice on who gets out alive. You drop the gorilla.
Now for all those people who are in an outrage over the gorilla being shot – What’s the damn problem? Police shoot men in the street all day everyday for nothing at all and I don’t see ya’ll uprising.
Soo…am I to perceive this uprising as a suggestion that just like on these racial streets of America that little Black life inside that gorilla compound #doesn’tmatter? Y’all are really wearing it your sleeves with this one.
Tell ya what. To all of those that are up on their hind legs about the gorilla getting killed squeeze your asses up in a gorilla compound on my watch. I’ll honor your wishes – I ain’t shooting shit. Good luck getting out.
And as far as trying to charge the parents with something. Pleeze! Y’all are just hell bent on getting a #blacklife here.
Let it go. That boy’s Momma told him not to do it.
I’m going to go in on this bs with one final question.
Would we be defending this gorilla if the child had been white?
Don’t charge me with playing the race card – it’s already in this incident- calling it out.
