mari.s.c7 It's bad enough this endangered and magnificent gorilla has spent it's life imprisoned is a zoo, but to be killed because of an irresponsible parent who wasn't watching their kid is absolutely outrageous.

RIP Harambe This 17 year old endangered western lowland silverback gorilla was SHOT DEAD today at Cincinnati Zoo, Ohio when a 4 year old child, after being overheard by eyewitnesses telling his mother he wanted to 'get in the water', crawled through a railing and fell into the enclosure. The boy was in there for 15 minutes and is fine.
Does this gorilla look like he's hurting the child? It's a gorilla not a lion or tiger. Harambe is protecting him. He shields him from the crowd at the start, then gently tries to help the boy stand up, then pulls the boy through the water to the other end away from all the screaming adults. The camera then zooms over showing the boy sat calmly next to Harambe away from all the commotion.
The media have spun sensationalist lies about this story but the truth is clear to see. Gorillas are misunderstood gentle giants. It's like when Jambo the gorilla saved a child that fell into a gorilla enclosure in 1986 and when Bindi the gorilla saved a child that fell into an enclosure in 1996.
In the article that accompanied this video from WLWT, a witness called Kim O'Connor said "At times, Harambe almost appeared to want to protect the boy from the onlookers. I don't know if the screaming did it or too many people hanging on the edge, if he thought we were coming in, but he pulled the boy away further from the big group"

This story is heartbreaking. Humans are the dangerous ones, not gorillas Please #boycottzoos as there is no entertainment in stolen freedom.

jetboonstoppel I' ve always stood right beside you
We fought back to back so many times
But when it's me who needs you in my corner
It ends up with me in a lonely fight

RIP #Harambe
This is a video from 5 months ago from the Cincinnati Zoo Facebook page, which shows Harambe eating his celery. He didn't eat the celery leaves as he didn't like those. I've seen videos and read about him and everything shows that he was the gentlest soul who had a personality and charm that everyone loved.
In the 17 years of his life, he never hurt anybody. He lived in the Gladys Porter Zoo in Texas before they moved him to Ohio and despite living a miserable life in captivity he was very docile and kind-natured so to shoot him dead while he was PROTECTING a child that fell into his enclosure as a result of negligent parenting really hurts my heart.

The zoo keepers who have a close bond with Harambe should have been on hand to simply go into the enclosure and retrieve the boy. Will humans ever learn? An innocent life lost for nothing. Zoos really need to become a thing of the past. Please #boycottzoos as there is no entertainment in stolen freedom

goddess_of_hidden_light Every single person on the face of the planet has a story. Don't JUDGE people before you truly know them and all they have endured on their path. The TRUTH may surprise you.
But as for each and everyone out there here is my 2 cents worth of advice, always remember you don't need to explain yourself or prove anything to anyone. If they can't except you for you, then its time to move on. What makes one human think they have the right to label & judge another? Are they a god or goddess, I'm afraid not.

Good morning and blessed Sunday from gloomy southern California
