Family should count their blessings in gorilla incident where the only death was the ape’s

People shouldn’t lose sight of the simple truth in the incident involving the 4-year-old child’s unfortunate entry into the gorilla enclosure, May 28, at the Cincinnati Zoo. An investigation? This family in the Harambe gorilla case came out on top. They should thank God theirs was a different fate. Same case scenario at a lion, tiger, grizzly bear enclosure they’d be facing the burial of whatever remained of their child. They received a second chance.

This family received a second chance. The simple truth is, the child’s presence in the gorilla enclosure wasn’t the zoo’s fault. It wasn’t the fault of the gorilla. The blame belongs to the parents, alone.

Many are up in arms about a police department investigation. This family came out on top. They should thank God there wasn’t a different fate. Same case scenario at a lion, tiger, grizzly bear enclosure — they’d be facing the burial of whatever remained of their child. They received a second chance.

The 20-year-old man in this photo was drunk when he entered this white tiger enclosure in September 2014 at Delhi Zoo in New Delhi, India. The tiger did not attack the intruder immediately, but eyewitnesses to the spectacle said after 10 minutes the beast killed the man.
