  1. It’s the zoo’s obligation to protect its visitors. Does anyone inspect the zoo’s safety? Aren’t there any regulations? Aren’t zoo’s partially funded by tax dollars? So basically, Government agencies are above the law. Very nice.

  2. i just dont get it!!!

    those that feel that killing the gorilla was “senseless” and “unnecessary death”, what do they feel should have been done??? let the gorilla kill the child????

  3. Michael please read a bit about the history of the negligence in regards to responsibility of this family and it’ll make sense to you as to why they should be charged.
