ITEM: Killed Gorilla Seemed to Protect Child Who Fell in Enclosure: Witness
Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all! - 7th Statement, The Satanic Bible.
Harambe should be alive today, if only supervisors as well as parents would have made better decisions regarding his safety. It does take some effort to enter the enclosure, so it is not as if the boy accidentally slipped into it while on the proper path. He would have had to climb a fence, wall, etc., to reach the edge of the pit; which should not have happened anyway had the assigned parental unit been responsible and attentive. The creature was merely living out his day when intruded upon.
This was the second similar incident in recent history wherein security was breached. The ape named Jambo assumed a protective posture guarding against attack or intrusion by other apes whose curiosity may have excessive enthusiasm, perhaps towards accidental harm. Similar circumstances in this case. The creature could have obviously killed the child if he wanted to, but as can be seen in the video, he was gently nudging and otherwise perhaps even cleaning the child in a sort of bathing movement like it soiled itself.
Contrast & Compare
Harambe did not attack. The child was not a threat. He actually held the child's hand, perhaps even played with him. Most gorillas are actually quite intelligent, gentle giants, and quite balanced overall. Only becoming defensive to protect themselves and tribe, home, but in both of these cases, the little humanimals were obviously not perceived as threats. Thus, such a regrettable waste of an endangered creature. Ghekre will judge. Harambe will be avenged.
Even though zoos are probably not exactly the best places to captivate animals, where they are treated more like a freakshow to be gawked at, instead of a preserve where they may roam extensively in a natural environment; Those at the Cincinnati Zoo should perhaps consider a lesson from those at the New Jersey Zoo in dealing with these situations. By and large, it appears that these creatures take better care of their own than many human so-called "parents" do, which lends to the idea that there should actually be parenting lessons perhaps even necessitating a license to raise productively. ∞
Harambe means "to pull together", and is an East African chant for Strength.
