Transcript of Harambe Case
It was awful for the child, the parents, Harambe, the zoo, the keepers and the public.
The Mother, Michelle Gregg
Justice for Harambe.
If Harambe want to kill the boy, he could killed him in seconds.
“The death will have a vast impact on the entire troop. They’re like human families, you can’t replace Harambe with another male. There’s a sense of love and bonding and the entire troop will be destroyed

A similar incident took place in 1986 when a five-year-old boy fell into a gorilla enclosure at Jersey Zoo. On that occasion, Jambo, a massive male silverback, protected the child, who had suffered head injuries during the fall.
Binti Jua, who gently picked up an unconscious boy who had fallen into her enclosure and cradled him in her arms before carefully handing him over to Brookfield Zoo keepers?
Professor in Animal Behaviour in the Centre for Neuroscience and Animal Behaviour.
A prolific writer of over 250 research articles, she has so far also written 20 books, some jointly with Prof. Lesley Rogers. Prof. Kaplan is contributor to many prestigious events and research publications concerned with animal behaviour, specifically primatology
Considered to be the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, Goodall is best known for her 55-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania.
What she thinks about it.
At first she said that it looked as though the gorilla was putting an arm around the child.
But later issued a longer explanation in an interview with the president of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, concluding that the zoo had
NO choice but to kill Harambe.
What she thinks about it.
“Usually a child is not a threat,”
“The silverback would’ve understood that it was a defenceless small child. They would not normally attack, they are not an agreessive species (and) in the wild I’m certain the boy wouldn’t have been killed.”
“If he was going to attack he would’ve warned him first. The first thing they do is charge and beat their chests and as far as I know that didn’t happen.”
Prof Kaplan said Harambe likely moved the boy away from the screaming crowd of people because of the noise.
This could not be used because as it is a 450 lb animal, the tranquilizers would just take too long to make effect. Harambe would have been stressed and may harmed the boy.
His carer could have helped
"I could go in the cage
with him and he would not attack me."
"I'm not going to comment on it. I wasn't there."
