How do I kill Harambe
The killing of a gorilla in the US city of Cincinnati zoo has drawn hundreds of thousands of animal lovers worldwide on the scene. The anger was directed not only against the zoo, which critics believed was too radical, but also against the boy's parents.
Zoo staff shot the 17-year-old gorilla Harambe on Saturday after a young boy fell into a moat around the gorilla enclosure and was then pulled through the water by the silverback. The four-year-old was rescued afterwards and got away with the horror.
The storm of protests via the Internet and a media vortex in the USA, which even pushed the presidential election campaign into the background, forced the zoo management to defend its actions again on Monday.
By Monday evening (local time) around 200,000 people had signed an Internet petition according to NBC, demanding that their parents be punished. They did not supervise their child sufficiently and thereby caused the death of the gorilla, it was said to justify.
A Facebook page called "Justice for Harambe" also earned tens of thousands of "likes" within a few hours. "Killing an endangered animal is worse than murder," the Washington Post quoted a comment from Denmark, for example.
"Would do the same today"
Zoo director Thane Maynard confirmed to journalists on Monday that the death of "Harambe" was a heavy loss, but that there was no other choice. The gorilla had become excited, disoriented and unpredictable from the boy's fall, and with his weight of almost 200 kilos he represented an immediate danger to the child.
Paralyzing the animal with a narcotic was not an option. That would have taken too long, Maynard said: "We stand by our decision, and we would do the same today."
Meanwhile, the boy's parents thanked the zoo employees in a written declaration for the "quick reaction" and at the same time acknowledged that the zoo had suffered a serious loss. Your son is doing well, it was said.
According to US media reports, the police are not planning any investigations against the parents. According to US media reports, the mother was there when her son fell into the moat, as a childminder together with several other protégés.
