I'm glad the gorilla got shot at the zoo. The Gorilla should have left the child alone in the first place, the gorilla knew better. The mother is in no way at fault in this situation. If you are woman or anyone of the same species as the gorilla I refuse to debate against you.

So Objection one. It was the fault of the adult, as the rules of all zoo state kids must be supervised at all times, the kid was not being supervised.
Objection two, you refuse to debate a woman, possibly because you think that they may have a different point of view that may show that you are incorrect, so please no more sexism from here on out
Objection three, you claim the gorilla should have known better. A boy fell into its cage, the gorilla may have just been wanting to help the kid, and was until people started screaming, and it scared the gorilla. Eyewitnesses state the gorilla was helping the boy, but started becoming hostile when the screaming from the crowd scared him.
Objection four, generally the only things entering a zoo exhibit are food, water, and the occasional keeper, but the gorrilla might have seen it was none of these things, and so went to examine.

@marknowledge the gorilla wanted to help what happened before the video you don't know no one but the people there know and we cant fix anything now because heramba was already shot but what I can tell you is that we don't know what happened before the video so don't base your opinion on the video

Listen JustinPatrickShurie, you said that, "[The] gorilla may have just been wanting to help the kid, and [it] was until people started screaming, and it scared the gorilla. Eyewitnesses state [that] the gorilla was helping the boy, but started becoming hostile when the screaming from the crowd scared him".
Firstly, the screaming from the crowd happened AFTER the gorilla GRABBED and DRAGGED the boy (watch the video clearly and stop lying!). Therefore, the screaming didn"t agitate the monster; it knew was it was doing.
Let"s be real; what parent wouldn"t scream if a 420 lbs gorilla had their 40 lbs son/daughter in harms way. Gorilla studies have consistently proved that gorillas are very unpredictable. There is no telling what intentions the animal had. Thus, it was perfectly normal for the crowd to act fearful as they did.
Also, blaming the parents doesn"t justify or unjustly the gorilla's death; its irrelevant to the debate (unless you"re implying that it could"ve been prevented). But even if, that scenario is still inadmissible when only and directly focusing on whether the killing was justified.
Lastly, your attempts at validating the gorilla's curiosity is beyond irrelevant. Assumptions like that get the debate nowhere. Case closed!

How is the woman not responsible for supervising her child?
