Zoos should be safer than this......for the animals I mean
A 3 year old boy crawled through a fence and fell into the gorilla enclosure moat at the Cincinnati zoo. After the boy was dragged violently around by the male gorilla (pictured), the zoo personnel had to kill the gorilla to save the boy. How horrible!
If this had been an adult who jumped into the enclosure on purpose, I'd say let the gorillas have him, but this was a dumb kid, obviously not being watched by what I assume to be idiot parents/guardians.
This happens all the time at zoos around the world. How is it possible that every zoo by now, hasn't secured all dangerous animal enclosures against such entrances? How did this happen?
