Are you kidding me?: Parents of 4-year-old who caused Harambe the gorilla's slaughter at Cincinnati Zoo could be CHARGED

This is ridiculous!
  If this happens it will only be because of pleasure by animal rights activists who want justice a dead Gorilla.  These animal people are the ones who need to be charged for insanity.   

Daily Mail reports police have said the parents of a four-year-old who climbed into a gorilla's enclosure could face criminal charges after staff were forced to kill the beloved animal.

Harambe the 400lb gorilla was shot dead by Cincinnati Zoo officials just one day after his 17th birthday when the boy climbed through barriers and fell into the enclosure.
The incident, which was captured on cell phone, has sparked an outcry of emotion, with thousands of mourners branding it a 'senseless death'.

Many are placing the blame squarely on the parents of the boy. They are yet to be charged but police said prosecutors could choose to indict them.
Michelle Gregg, the mother of the boy, posted a message on Facebook saying: 'I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers today. What started off as a wonderful day turned into a scary one.

Give me a break!  Charging the parents for this would be a real injustice. 


  1. No, not charging them would be an injustice. If you are in public with your THREE YEAR OLD you better keep an eye or hand on him at all times ESPECIALLY BOYS! Being a parent isn't rocket science, safety of your children is always priority #1. Seriously, the thought never crossed anyones mind that "maybe we should be careful with our 3 year old boy next to this pit of giant freaking gorillas"? Seriously? I wish you could be charged for being ignorant.

  2. You are wrong. They SHOULD be charged.

    It is their fault that the animal had to be killed, their negligence. They should be charged with reckless endangerment and be forced to pay the cost of the gorilla.

    I'm sad that the animal had to be put down because of the stupidity of the parents. He was only acting like a gorilla.
    When you take your child to a zoo, it is up to you to prevent him from entering the animals enclosures. They are lucky he wasn't killed.

    IMO they should be forced to pay for the replacement cost and then jailed for endangering the kid (and, sadly, the animal) by their failure to prevent this tragedy.

    I am sure that , had the child been inured or killed they would be suing the zoo for damages.

  3. That fence and enclosure has been there for decades and this is the first time that there has been a problem. I'm familiar with that enclosure at that zoo. The parents were either complicit in the kid getting into the enclosure or totally ignored their child for an inordinate amount of time. Personally, I'm betting on their being complicit. So, yes they should be charged with child endangerment since we do not have the option of having them dragged behind the woodshed for an attitude adjustment.
