A western lowland gorilla was killed yesterday to save a 4 year old boy who fell into his area…. Per Wikipedia: They are foragers but favor locations based on time/season over an 18 mi sq area. Non aggressive, tend to be 1 male and 3 female plus young. In caltivity, up to 62% show signs of stress in the form of hair pulling… Opinion: Zoos are the wrong execution of the right idea, basically imprisonment of animals. We have zoos currently I think to protect animals and educate our youth that we share this Earth, which is great but means a living creature is sentenced to life imprisonment. I feel like zookeepers are saints but the concepts of zoos is bad… How many humans and animals does our society incarcerate? Awful.
