    Imagine that, a black family not watching their child, and not bringing him up correctly. That habitat has been there for 38 years with no problem like this. They should bee ashamed of themselves, but instead, they will most likely sue the zoo. They should be charged with child endangerment, but that will never happen because they are black.

    If there isn’t already a ridiculous situation, blacks can always be counted on to create one.

    The gorilla shouldn’t have been caged in the first place. So many people claim to be against animal cruelty yet they are the first to buy passes to get in to see them. When you go against nature which people do in many different ways it is an accident waiting to happen. They could not use a tranquilizer gun because depending on the animal it can take 45 minutes or longer to work. It is not like in the movies. Gorillas read body gestures and facial expressions as a means of communication. If the boy had given the wrong signal the gorilla could take it as a threat and kill. It is sad to know that the gorilla was shot and killed. They have killed man many times in the wild. Regardless of what color the child is he is still a child and all that prejudice bullshit has no bearing on the situation. If your child fell down in that cage you would have a whole different opinion. It is a no win situation once again because of human stupidity!

    Zoos do provide important conservation purposes for endangered animals who aren’t safe in the wild, but they should ALL be revamped so that humans are caged as they move through the animal habitats. And the habitats themselves need to be MUCH larger and MUCH less restrictive for the animals.
