***This incident with the gorilla and the child gets more mind-boggling by the day. The mother involved has been raked over the coals, maligned, called awful names by people who call themselves compassionate and have no idea what really happened. That there should be this much outrage over a friggin' ape when there was a child's life at stake is amazing - and maddening. Now they want to bring the parents up on criminal charges. I'm SO glad these people were the perfect parents and had perfect children. Now they want the government telling us how to parent? I would kill 1000 gorillas if it saved one child. I've seen people tweet that they think it would have been better for the mother to have been shot and let the ape live. That person should be institutionalized, as should everyone who agreed with her. I've seen otherwise reasonable people (except when it comes to animals, then they have no sense at all, but that's another post), put up a meme with a picture of the gorilla and the caption "I had to die because some bitch wasn't watching her child." That is just hateful and vile. Again, nobody knows for sure exactly what happened, but by golly a gorilla was killed and that's a national catastrophe. Apparently those people chiding the mother have never had a small child who disobeyed them. Anyone who has had a child knows how quickly something can happen. Use that compassion you claim you have and try to imagine the mother's horror at seeing her son being dragged around by a 450 lb gorilla. Let's throw your kid in there and see if you think the zoo should have hesitated before shooting him.
