Logical fallacy. The question assumes that if Harambe had lived, the boy would have died. There is no reason to conclude that.

I struggle between the fact that there is an abundance of humans on the planet, children are the least worth of us since society have not payed for their education etc AND the fact that Gorillas are a slave species beneath us in rank and maybe we should make an example of Gorillas that threaten human spawn. But the options were so limited and one sided that I said "No. Killing was the only option".

For those who voted "Yes. They should have used a tranquilizer." you do realize that a tranquilizer would've just angered Harambe even more, right? Killing him was the only option, or else the child would have died. Here's my source:

Q: How many times have humans found themselves in primate enclosures at zoos? A: At least four on record. Q: How many times have primates in captivity killed a human? A: Zero. Yep, no choice. Those primates are vicious killers. Shoot 'em all.

Where was the "They shoulda tossed in some bananas to distract him" option?
