A 180KG Gorilla, named Harambe, was shot dead by the Cincinnati Zoo Officials after a four year old kid fell into its enclosure.
The Zoo Officials explained that the security team had taken a very tough but correct decision.
There were two other female gorillas in the same enclosure, who didn’t attack on the kid, and hence are safe.
It’s been said that the kid somehow managed to climb the fences and eventually fell into enclosure.
This was not the first incident of shooting animals to save human life. Just a few days ago, two lions were shot dead after a man jumped into their enclosure.
