Usually I don’t write about any stories outside of the UK, however, I couldn’t resist a bit of a rant about the latest story to take over the internet.
Harambe the gorilla was shot dead by Cincinnati Zoo officials after a 4 year-old boy climbed the barriers and fell into the enclosure.
There have been thousands of people signing petitions to call for the boy’s parents to be held accountable for the “senseless” and “unnecessary death” of the gorilla.
The Justice for Harambe petition has been signed by around 480,310 people.
The boy was taken to hospital after the incident but suffered no serious injuries according to a Facebook status posted by his mother, who also told the New York Post “God protected my child until the authorities were able to get him…” Well I suppose someone had to look after your child seen as you certainly weren’t.
