Note to self: never let your child pound their chest at a gorilla when it's just glass between you and the gorilla.

Talk about over Hyped Media headlines "Family runs in terror........"

As if they were being chased by the Ape. I'm sure it scared them but doubt they ran in terror.

Typical media hype nowadays.

We should really stop keeping such highly intelligent beings in zoos. The big apes, which we also belong to, are basically humans. Would we like to be kept that way, with people staring at us all the time, even teasing us like that child did?

I hope that Gorilla is OK. Silly kids messing around. The animals at the zoo are there to observe not invoke.

I was wondering the same thing. It seems he smashed into the glass with the front of his body, not elbow or fist as one might expect. I hope he did not hurt himself. I don't know if a gorilla has any idea of how strong artificial materials are.
