Harambe was not protecting the kid. People who actually work with his species have said that he was making a show of power.
They do it in the wild with objects to try and scare off threats to their pack. In this case, the kid and all the screaming people. So the kid was in a lot of danger. And tranquilizers would have put the kid in more danger. As they are too slow acting and might not work at all. Also, they would potentially make the gorilla even more aggressive. Hence the only thing they could do was shoot him. Which is not a decision they wanted to make, but had to.
@TheGoogler, sure sounds like a Harambe smear campaign to me.
@TheGoogler, no one blames the zookeeper. Do you not realize the entire fan base is angry at the mother?
@Child Slapper, 100% agree with you! The child also told his mother he was going to climb over the railing before he did it.
@TheGoogler, I don’t think anyone’s arguing that they shouldn’t have shot Harambe, it’s more that people are pissed at the mother that it had to come to that at all
It’s okay, guys, don’t worry. The cops won’t shoot him.
Inside the costume is a white guy.
Well, this won't end well
Revenge is a dish best served in a hot boiling mess of your enemies.
Why go after the kids? He should go after the guns.
This man clearly wants to commit suicide
The boy should have had his dick out... this is like passover for Harambe
I remember seeing this news article a few months after Harambe’s passing
