"Survival of the fittest" - If the kid was stupid enough to get in there, he's stupid enough to die there.

It is sad. We weren't there so I don't think we should be condemning the parents and the zoo did what they thought was best according to their policies.

Here's one that ended well for both child and gorilla a few years ago.

yes he was. so not to be rude but notacheesecake your a cheesecake.. child wouldnt understand at that age that crawling through the rails was a big no no. It's shame on the parents for not watching their child on such a busy day or just in general at all.

True, but c'mon, he caused the death of a gorilla. Although it's true that it was the parents fault. Someone said they heard the child say he was going to go in there beforehand but parent was taking care of other children. It was a bad turn of events that sadly caused the death of a poor gorilla.

thats not the childs fault. he didnt realize that it would cause the gorilla to die. but unless the gorilla got aggressive in getting the child there was no need for them to kill the gorilla. That just made the parents sound even worse. if they cant handle the amount of kids they already have they shouldnt be having more and should keep all ears open for ALL of them. hope it was a lesson learned to them. cause their bad parenting child could have cost them a child.

The situation is so stupid. Overall it is the parents fault but the fact they killed the gorilla straight away and the sympathy went to the kid instead of the gorilla is annoying. We keep killing animals in stupid ways and think of humans as more important as them. What do you think should happen to the parent at this point?

well i mean 4 yr olds are typically 30-40 lbs. gorilla was 400lbs. child fell roughly 5-10 ft into the pit that fall could break an adults bone. & i just watched the news video at one point the gorilla did actually throw the child a little. child's in the hospital for injuries now. but i gotta say i know if it was my child i probably would have had them do all cost into saving my child. but then again id watch my child so i'd never be in that situation. the crowd is curious on childs conditions, zoo keepers it seems 50/50 for both the child & gorilla. & parents can expect some hate comments on why they couldnt keep better attention on all their kids from other parents.

He's a four year old and maybe the parents got caught up in something in the mass confusion and crowd. They should have never let go of their child's hand but I wasn't there to say they were neglecting him either. It's easy to make mistakes. It's unfortunate this one ended with the death of an intelligent animal. I'm also bit appalled the zoo had no available tranquillisers.


The mother was attending other children who were throwing a fuss. before the 4 yr old even crawled into there & fell several ft, he said that he was going to go in there. obviously mom either didnt hear or ignored her child from frustration the other kids. regardless on a crowded day that child should have never left her sight.

i think they had to do it for the childs safety, people would not go back if they found out a young child killed or seriously injured due to a gorrilla or the zoo might off closed down, to me this is a loss loss situation. no win

Who do sympathize over more, the child or gorilla. Personally, I sympathize over the gorilla more because I think it was trying to protect the child more than anything, sadly the crowd may have patronized it too much so he may have been exra protective.

yes i agree if the gorilla really wanted to do harm he would have right from the start. but you gotta think who you think was more scared the gorilla or the child?

atleast a good gorilla and how it responded with like a boss against some other gorilla that wanted to do something at 0:46 and the "friendly" 1:00 Dunno what it tried to check or do?
I guess thats why after that they went away?
But now let Tarzan out!
