It seemed like quick thinking when the Cincinnati Zoo shot to death a gorilla that was manhandling a small boy who had fallen into its enclosure on Saturday afternoon.Just what makes this animal innocent?
But soon supporters of animal rights were organizing a vigil outside the zoo in remembrance of the gorilla, named Harambe, a male weighing more than 420 pounds. Online petitions circulated blaming the mother of the child for negligence. By Monday the chorus of outrage had reached such an intense pitch that the zoo held a news conference to defend itself. ...
The boy’s mother, however, has certainly not been at peace. On Twitter, Facebook and other forums, tens of thousands of people have expressed vitriol over her failure to keep the boy out of trouble.
By late Monday, an online petition had garnered more than 180,000 signatures calling for her to be investigated by law enforcement and child protective services agencies for possible child neglect. The Cincinnati police said on Monday that they had no such plans.
In hundreds of comments on the petition, supporters said Harambe, an innocent animal, had not deserved to die.
If you are anthropomorphizing a gorilla, it was threatening to kill a small child. A human would be killed for doing that.
The gorilla lovers would probably say that it was too dumb to realize what it was doing. Okay, fine, but is that why Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton rush to the defense of blacks who attempt murder?
It is bad enuf to excuse the gorilla, but it is disgusting to blame the victims (mom and child) for going to the zoo. Visiting the zoo is not child neglect.
These animal rights creeps are really sick. So are the social justice warriors.
