Anonymous Seeks Justice For Murdered Gorilla Harambe

Cecils Pride

Anonymous has just released a video announcing the start of #OPHARAMBE In Memory of the Gorilla Harambe who lost his life at the hands of Cincinnati Zookeepers while protecting a confused child who fell into the gorilla pen. The video calls for the child’s parents to face charges and be investigated for their involvement in the death of the innocent gorilla by neglecting to properly watch over their child. Anonymous reveals the address and phone number of the pre-school where the child’s mother Michelle Gregg works.

Anonymous shows their commitment for fair justice by sternly rebuking those who have been foolishly taking a blindly racist tone to criticism over the parents of the child who is of darker skin tone. Anonymous instead makes it clear that regardless of race, poor parenting and neglect of a child is unacceptable and must be accounted for especially when it causes the senseless tragically preventable death of another life as in this case an…

  1. So a 3-year-old boy propelled himself into a gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo, and a magnificent silverback gorilla, member of an endangered species, was gunned down. It turned out that Harambe was no more safe in the zoo than he would have been in the wild.

    While some have suggested that the child’s entering the enclosure and the gorilla’s death were just unfortunate events, we owe it to Harambe to prove if there was carelessness and, if so, to make sure there are also consequences.

    The zoo maintains that the barrier to Harambe’s enclosure was safe and had never been breached in the 38-year history of the zoo. Yet a 3-year-old got through it. It was only luck that a witless teenager or a drunk or a psychotic had not already taken the plunge.

    Some witnesses point to the role of the mother who was at the zoo with three small children and a baby.
    “Accidents happen,” so explains the mother of the child who fell into the gorilla’s enclosure. That is a pretty cavalier and flip statement! Accidents can especially happen when people aren’t paying attention. For a 3-year-old to go to the barrier, climb over it, make his way through the area of bushes, and then jump in with Harambe must have taken more than a few seconds. Witnesses heard the child say he wanted to get into the enclosure and its pond, so Mom knew what he was thinking about and didn’t watch.

    After the child was rescued and later discharged from the hospital, Mom expressed gratitude to God for protecting her son. Well why didn’t God protect him by preventing him from falling into the enclosure in the first place? Then God would also have protected Harambe from being shot. Guess God wasn’t paying attention either. Mom also didn’t mention the tragic result of the accident or apologize for any part she just might have played. Sadly, that result was Harambe’s losing his life. The child can go on having whatever accidents lie in his future, but Harambe is gone from this earth forever.

    People may complain about Internet shaming and blaming of either the mother or the zoo, but it has gotten attention now for Harambe, just as it provided attention for Cecil by plaguing Dr. Walter Palmer for months after his infamous trophy hunt. Maybe discovering negligence in the child’s mother, or at least the effects of the bad publicity, will warn zoo visitors that causing harm to its residents will have consequences. If future animals in their zoo imprisonment can be spared abuse and if their lives can be saved, then that will be Harambe’s legacy.
