New camera angle shows what the Gorilla was really doing after the boy fell in. Look closer…

A 4-year-old boy fell into a Gorilla enclosure at a Zoo in Cincinatti, Ohio. The incident ended with controversy after Harambe, a 17-year-old 450 lb male Gorilla was shot dead by zoo officials and the boy was returned to his mother.

What really happened and who was to blame has been debated ever since. One group of loud voices argue that the animal was simply trying to protect the child, that it was killed senselessly, and that it could have been tranquilized. Another group argues that the Gorilla was putting the boy’s life in danger, that it violently dragged the child through the water, and that tranquilizing the creature could have caused more harm to the boy as the Gorilla became confused and fatigued.
The Cincinnati Zoo Director Thane Maynard released a statement on Facebook :

There has been backlash in public opinion against the boy’s mother, Michelle Gregg, who blame her negligence as the true cause of this sad event. In a now-deleted Facebook post the mother of 4 released the following statement:

The group is asking for an official investigation into the boy’s home life to look for other incidents of parental negligence. On their Facebook page they have posted the following statement attached to the petition:

Animal expert Jack Hanna agrees completely with the zoo official’s decision to end Harambe’s life to save the boy. Hannah, the Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, discusses why killing the Gorilla was the right decision in the video below.
