Cincinnati Zoo Gorilla Killing: They are building a better barrier. Mother not charged. — 1 Comment

  1. I figured this would be the outcome. I strongly suggest a You Break it You Buy it sign in front of all animal enclosures. Aside from the pretty banter the truth is more likely the idiots were judgment proof and not ever likely to have the resources to pay anything on a judgment filed against them.
    Now I’m going to put this out there to think about.
    Children have had the opportunity to get through that barrier for years. This child however seems to have made a run for the enclosure. Not an accident, or simple wander off. It’s been quoted in every story that the boy was heard saying he wanted in the water/moat.
    If this child has a diagnosed behavior issue would not that make the parents duty of care rise to higher standard ?
    I question the depth of the actual investigation.
    Beefing up the barrier is of course a necessity. Of course the one unfixable thing is human stupidity.
    I am also curious if they pulled the parent’s cell phone records or examined them for ‘selfies’. What were the parents doing while their 3 year old was making a beeline for a ditch with a wild animal in it ?
