Witnesses describe screams, shots at gorilla enclosure - CNN.com

Do they really have to kill the gorilla? I wish he had a name.

His name was Harambe.

I really hate zoos.

Yes, they really did need to kill him. There was no other option to ensure the child was safe. I blame the parents, but I'm sure they would have done something differently if they could go back. It is a sad thing that happened, but sad things happen every day.

They should have tried tranquilizers. If the gorilla ended up killing the brat, well too bad. Gorillas are endangered; humans are not.

We know there is definitely no shortage of brat kids and idiotic parents running around these days.

Animals have rights too! Except for rats etc but cute and endangered animals have rights.
