What's Your Take?

The killing of a gorilla in a Cincinnati zoo after a 3 year old boy fell into the animal’s enclosure has sparked a growing controversy. The 17- year old gorilla dragged the little boy like a rag doll after the boy climbed under a railing and through wires before falling about 15 feet into a shallow moat at the edge of the gorilla’s habitat. Many are questioning the use of lethal force opposed to a tranquilizer.The loss of the endangered gorilla has caused hundreds of thousands to sign a petition calling for the parents to be charged with negligence while others think the habitat should have been better secured.

What’s your take? Who is responsible? The zoo or the parents?

Would you feel the parents were wrong had they been White?

Tranquilizer would have taken too long considering the size of that animal.The zoo did the right thing.It was an accident,period.
