Granted, there's blame to throw everywhere especially on the mother, but I would never risk the life of a little boy just to protect a gorilla. Just my two cents...

I blame the mother, considering anyone who's child does that is gonna be blamed though. Killing an endangered animal wasn't needed, none of it would've happened if she had just payed attention to her child.

Completely true, it falls on the mother. They should definitely charge her with reckless endangerment after what that child went through.

Tranquilizing the gorilla takes more than a few seconds, it's not just a "bam-fall" type of thing. The kid would be traumatized for life

The kid probably would be even more traumatized now because he witnessed a creature being killed and it would be his fault in his eyes.

it seems that all lives matter only to us. Thats what separates us from everything else. We don't see sharks worry about gorillas or anything else like that, Humans are the only species on this planet who cares about all the other animals. This was such an unfortunate even, especially when this could have easily prevented. The kid WAS in mortal danger, tranquilizing the animal could have angered it more plus the time factor involve, too many variables. Its sad on so many levels!!

Washoe was a chimp raised in captivity. She was taught about 350 words of ASL, some of which was told to her adopted son Loulis. one of her main workers lost many weeks off work after she had a miscarriage. This is a recount of Roger Fouts, one of her workers:
People who should be there for her and aren't are often given the cold shoulder--her way of informing them that she's miffed at them. Washoe greeted Kat [the caretaker] in just this way when she finally returned to work with the chimps. Kat made her apologies to Washoe, then decided to tell her the truth, signing "MY BABY DIED". Washoe stared at her, then looked down. She finally peered into Kat's eyes again and carefully signed "CRY", touching her cheek and drawing her finger down the path a tear would make on a human (Chimpanzees don't shed tears). Kat later remarked that one sign told her more about Washoe and her mental capabilities than all her longer, grammatically perfect sentences

Washoe lost two of her own children, from heart defects and infections.

Washoe was seen as the most capable ape ever to be studied at such a scale, making many deep connections with humans.

Dont you ever dare say that because something doesnt look like you or have half a brain (Like you), it is not as human as you are. Why is it never the children like you that fall into the cages huh?

I know the chimp you're mtalking about, i agree that people definitely underestimate intelligence on, well, just about everything! Just look at elephants, you know they know whats going on. I spent 2 weeks at a friends ranch in Texas turned into and elephant sanctuary. One, they're freaking huge! 2,: just in that little time i did spend with them,i could see their personalities and just observe them, and i have to say , they feel like equals, they know what the hell you're up to! Freaky! I understand where you're coming from, im very sarcastic and sometimes it doesn't come through on paper,mso to speak! :)

I too, have gone and seen the native elephants in Thailand. But heres the amazing thing - The guy touring us (There was like a cart thing attached to back of the elephant) asked for me to come forward onto the head. He then walks back, over the back of the elephant and asks would we like our photos taken. Of course wesaid yes, and they he just jumps off. Now, the real point here is, the elephant didn't throw me off or even look spooked, I just rubbed the ears and he trudged along, he photos being taken as we walked along the path.

Now, I was only 10 years old at the time. The amount of trust the creature put into me was incredible. i will never forget this. I was not a good, expensive thing with many workers. Just about ten or so people giving elephant rides on rickety corrugated steel platforms attached by a thin rope.

That elephant just remained calm and was not even worried that his trainer was walking away and he was still moving. Animals can always be trained to do this obviously, but there was a soul in there. And I like to think he trusted me.

Well in real sense, how does a shark even know what a gorilla is? And I do understand where you come from, being that kid being in perhaps some danger. But when a creature, one that is already in threat is killed for a life of something with seven billion inhabitants as to about only 100,000, the risk of endangered life, a problem we as humans have caused, is so much more meaningful.

If not every living thing mattered equally, then the balance of life would be off, if one animal goes extinct, more begin to starve. After a few decades or so, animals that needed that animal would too, so all living things lives should matter equally. Every animal has a purpose as to why it even exists, as do plants of course. Carnivores/Omnivores help control populations as well.

So, say kill a maggot. No big deal right? Say I crush a cockroach. Still, minority. Say I shoot a gorilla. The vote is half half, because the gorilla doesn't specifically help mankind, but it is rare and part of the ecosystem, holding abalance we alone cannot control through barriers or walls. Back to smaller things. say I kill a mosquito. No big deal. Say that mosquito has the ability to cure cancer, bipolar and leprosy, but there are over 10 billion of them. Does not matter on the scale. Now say that there are only five in the whole world. One fith of the population dies because self negligence.

Now, lets say the mosquito does not cure any disease, but does not transmit any form of disease at all. Now, in you're opinion, it does not matter how many I kill because it stands the minority towards human capacity.

So something in you're opinion is judged by whether it helps in a way that benefits you rather than others?

See this crowd behind the gate? You can't see how far back it goes. We couldn't see anything and the crowd was packed tight not allowing for others to have a chance to get closer, pretty soon my seven year old noticed they were letting little kids through up to the gate but only the little kids. One of those moments when your torn between your children losing out on something really great because unlike those other parents I didn't want my kids out of my sight. I gave in to the pressure, he took his Lil brothers hand and followed the others to the front. It was only like 5 minutes before they declared break and everyone started moving to the exits while I moved forward to I thought my kids, there was my 7 yr old but my 3 yr old was gone.

Thank you for sharing! If everyone in here that have kids were honest about it I'm sure that we all have been guilty of allowing our children to get into something dangerous. I'm glad your child was alright, but it happens. There are so many freak accidents every day. I'm sure somewhere the same day as the gorilla accident there was a child who broke a bone, and one who wrecked a bike, probably one who got hit by a vehicle. The difference Is those stories didn't make the news. If every parent who didn't have their eyes on their children every second was ridiculed like this mother has been all of out kids would be in foster care.
reply

The difference is you made a decision that had scary consequences. You were paying attention to your children and the surroundings. I'm sure if your 7 year old or your 3 year old announced they were climbing into the tank with keiko and it looked even remotely accessible you would have acted differently. I do understand a child slipping away in a matter of seconds but every person interviewed said this kid repeatedly said he was getting in the enclosure and it had to take more than seconds to climb and crawl his way to the edge of the most where he fell.

Other animals shouldn't be locked in cages for people to see them. Isn't already enough that all humans have locked themselves in the same place for almost their entire lives? Our lives are the most boring. Some humans tend to be different, having adventures around the globe. We're living a lie! That's one of the problems with mankind. We only care about ourselves.

There's a big difference between zoos, and how production chickens are kept. Zoos are careful to maintain the habitat. Keep in mind too how many kids were inspired to lifetimes of studying/helping animals and how much has been done to understand protect and save those remaining in the wild because of research performed at zoos. Those animals have better healthcare than I do.
reply

Still, I'm betting, that given the choice, the majority of those animals would rather be in the wild than in the zoo. And my chickens aren't production. They are just chickens. I got them because I like them. the eggs are a bonus.
reply
7 ups, 2 replies
I'm going to have to disagree. Most (almost all ) zoo animals today are born in captivity. They are fed, cared for, and provided with stimuli to enhance their lives. They know no other existence. To say an animal would be happier in the wild is tantamount to killing it. Imagine a child of privilege raised in affluence to manhood, being dumped in the Amazon and told good luck. That man would not be happier and neither would any zoo animal bed and raised in captivity.

Animals are reintroduced to their natural habitat all the time. They just have to be taught how. Animals weren't created to be an amusement for mankind. They should never been put in captivity in the first place.
reply
6 ups, 1 reply
RE-introduced means they've met their natural habitat before. Most zoo animals have been bred in captivity. As were their parents and in some species even their grandparents. It is extremely rare for animals to captured in the wild for zoos. Animals taken from the wild are used for the pet trade, illegal exhibitions, and poaching. All which zoos combat with education and funding.
4 ups
Suppose it were humans we are talking about. For instance, a child is born in captivity, raised in captivity, taken care of and knows no other life. All it is required to do is to amuse it's master and to be available for research. Would we allow that to continue?

and in the case of the whooping crane, eggs were hatched away from their natural habitat, raised by humans mimicking the parent crane and then introduced into their natural habitat without ever having seen it before.

If people want to see wild animals, there are plenty of documentaries showing the animal in it's natural habitat. I will never be convinced that public zoos are positive places.

Right, I understood the free-range thing. I also understand and practice humanity towards animals but I think we have gone too far when we ignore the good that can and has been done by research and funding provided by the zoos. I will say, having seen a graphic of the barrier at this particular enclosure, I am surprised there was not an incident before now. A 3-foot fence is not much of a barrier. Considering how stupid people are with cellphone cameras today, this was an incident waiting to happen, just a question of time.

reply

If the tranquilizer works you can depend upon a 5 to 15 min wait time. The gorilla will not be happy. If they hit it without hitting the kid. Remember, the gorilla is moving about.
If it doesn't work. Then they can't re-tranquilize, because A) it might not work B) it will die and you could have just shot it.
It isn't lime breathing in anesthesia at the dr. Office or getting a straight in the bloodstream injection.

Jack Hannah just gave his take on it, and it was that they did the right thing. His answer to the tranquilizer question is that the dart will cause some pain, and the gorilla would have seen the kid as that source and probably hurt if not killed him.

That actually is not true, the animal was not aggravated at that time. Getting shot with a dart WOULD have aggravated him and that is when predictability ends. The boy could have been dead before anyone had a chance to "evaluate". The man is an expert, he has been studying in the wild and in zoos and caring for along with saving
animals most of his life. If he says without wavering the zoo made the right call, then who are we to question it.

Just a follow up to my last comment, I included a bit from his website just to settle any possible doubts about his knowledge and priorities. "In 1991, a gorilla zookeeper at the Columbus Zoo discussed starting a grass-roots project that would benefit the mountain gorillas of Rwanda. I was immediately on-board, and Partners in Conservation (PIC) was born – their work in Rwanda quickly became the Zoo’s signature conservation project. Thanks to PIC, we’ve learned more over the past two decades than we could imagine about the mountain gorillas and what it takes to really make a sustainable difference for them in the wild, but also for the people that live around them.

Suzi and I have a home in Rwanda that we visit every year. We love interacting with the local people and visiting the orphanage and school the Columbus Zoo helps support. And of course, a trip to Rwanda wouldn’t be complete without hiking with the mountain gorillas in the Virunga Mountains!"

Well, there are only 100.000 Gorillas, 4000 of which are in captivity due to the destruction of their homes and poaching, compared to 7 billion people,55.3 million die each year with 131.4 births, so the odds and ratio compared means this impacts gorillas waaaay much more than if it was a human child.
