CWEB.com – The boy crossed barrier and fell into the exhibit, where he was grabbed and dragged by the 17-year-old gorilla, a zoo official said. The zoo said tranquilizers would have put the boy at risk. My heart breaks for the loss of this magnificent gorilla, and for his caregivers at the zoo. Once again, humans caused this death by being irresponsible and not paying attention to their child. To those asking why the gorilla was not darted or just wounded, an agitated or wounded animal is more dangerous and unpredictable. Sadly, when humans are involved, the animal will lose every time. Please don’t criticize the care staff, their hearts are broken, this gorilla was born and raised there.
