Toddler Falls Into Endangered Gorilla Cage At Cincinnati Zoo

A four-year-old boy fell into the gorilla enclosure this afternoon at the Cincinnati Zoo. He was in the pen for nearly ten minutes before a response team tranquilized the gorilla which had picked him up. A 17-year-old endangered gorilla, Harambe, was put down and the child was taken to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital with non life threatening injuries. See all the videos below.

A Cincinnati fire department incident report says that, “Fire personnel were on scene at the Cincinnati Zoo for a sick person when they were notified by fire dispatch that a child was in the gorilla pen. Fire crews immediately responded to the pen to assess the situation. They also called for CPD and additional fire personnel. Upon arrival at the pen, they witnessed a gorilla who was violently dragging and throwing the child. The child remained conscious throughout the event. It took approximately 10-15 minutes to rescue the child from the time of the fall. The threat from the gorilla was neutralized by a Cincinnati Zoo employee with one shot from a long rifle. The child was in-between the gorilla’s legs at the time of the shot. Zoo employees then unlocked the gate and 2 fire fighters quickly retrieved the child. Once the child was in a safe area, he was given a full trauma assessment, packaged and transported to Children’s Hospital with serious injuries. No further details are available at this time.”

Everyone seems to be more upset about the gorilla being killed because of parent lack of attention. See what others had to say.
