Harambe video. Since Harambe, a 17-year-old silverback gorilla, was killed at the Cincinnati Zoo after a 4-year-old boy got into his cage, many people have said that the animal didn’t need to be killed because he was trying to protect the boy. Amanda O’Donoughue, who used to work as a zookeeper, has a completely different view, which she shared on Facebook a few days ago.
Now, gorillas are called “gentle giants,” at least when compared to their more aggressive cousins, the chimpanzees. However, a 400-pound male in his prime is as strong as about 10 adults. What can you do on the bench? Okay, now add ten to that number. A silverback gorilla’s only job as an adult male is to protect his group. He does this by bluffing or scaring away anyone or anything that he thinks could hurt him.
The scene of Harambe with the child is “pretty much the stuff of any keeper’s nightmares.”
“I’ve watched this video over and over, and with Harambe’s posing and tight lips, it’s pretty much the stuff of any keeper’s worst nightmares, and I’ve had MANY while working with them. This job is not for people who are lazy. Gorillas are friendly, curious, and sometimes silly, but they are also very big and strong animals. I always had my OCD with me at work. Before I went in to clean, I checked and rechecked the locks to make sure the animals I cared for and I stayed apart.
The zookeeper finally tells the kid what Harambe was really up to with him.
Harambe didn’t want to protect the child; he just used him to scare people.
“I keep hearing that the gorilla was trying to keep the boy safe. I don’t think that’s true. Harambe the Gorilla tries to grab the boy’s hands and arms, but he is only trying to move the child so that he can show himself off better. When men are very angry, they slam and drag things around in very complicated ways. Most of the time, they would drag around big branches, barrels, and heavy balls to make as much noise as possible. Not to hurt anyone or anything (most of the time), but just to scare. I knew he was reacting to the screams from the crowd.
Why sleeping pills weren’t a choice
“They didn’t use tranquilizers for a few reasons: A. Harambe would have taken too long to become immobile, which could have hurt the child, and B. Harambe would have drowned in the moat if he was immobilized in the water, possibly trapping the boy and drowning him as well.
“I can’t blame anyone for Harambe’s death, but we really need to look at how safe the animal enclosures are for people to visit…
I know one thing for sure: those keepers lost a beautiful, and I mean beautiful, silverback and friend. This week, I’m sad for them. As people who teach about endangered species and work to protect them, all we can do is show how beautiful and majestic they are in the hopes of making people care about them and want to keep them around. They do not kill children. It’s a shame for the survival of the species and for the money a nice zoo like Cinci will lose.”
Harambe Video – Explained
Harambe is the gorilla which is trending on social media because he shot to death. Some kid falls into Harambe House and he was playing with the kid but for saving a kid guards shot him which causes his death. Is this the good thing they done. Because in the video we can saw that Harambe was not hurting a child and he was enjoying his compnay.
Harambe Video – Gorilla killed in Cincinnati Zoo
A bystander at the Cincinnati Zoo took video of the moment when the child got away from his parents and came into contact with the gorilla. The male gorilla, who is 17 years old, is then shown pulling the child along the moat. At one point, he helped the boy stand up and looked like they were holding hands. Harambe sat the boy between his legs after dragging him farther along the moat.
CNN said that the zoo thought the child was in danger and decided that killing the gorilla would be the best way to protect the boy. The zoo stands by its decision to kill Harambe instead of shooting him with a tranquillizer, but many people think it went too far and that the gorilla was trying to protect the boy, not hurt him.
Thane Maynard, the director of the Cincinnati Zoo, said of the police, “They made a hard choice, but it was the right choice because they saved that little boy’s life.” He also said, “It could have been very bad.”
The boy’s parents are also being criticised because they didn’t keep their curious son out of the enclosure. “This beautiful gorilla died because the boy’s parents didn’t keep a closer eye on him,” says a Change.org petition. We, the people who signed this letter, think that the child would not have been able to get into the enclosure if a parent had been watching him or her. Witnesses say they heard the child say that he wanted to go into the enclosure and was actively trying to break through the barriers.
The boy’s mother, Michelle Gregg, answered the criticism on Facebook. The boy is three years old. “For those of you who have seen it on the news or on social media, that was my son who fell into the gorilla exhibit at the zoo. God looked out for my child until the police could get to him. “My son is safe and only got a concussion and a few cuts. He didn’t break any bones or get hurt inside,” she said. “As a society, we are quick to judge how a parent could take their eyes off their child, and if you know me, you know I keep a close eye on my kids. Accidents happen, but I’m glad that the right people were in the right place today.”
