Outrage Grows Following Death of Cincinnati Zoo Gorilla

People are continuing to butt heads over the death of a 17-year-old gorilla from the Cincinnati Zoo.

The endangered gorilla’s death has caused a furious reaction from those who question the zoo’s decision to kill Harambe after a 3-year-old boy fell into his exhibit.

Some people have taken to social media and started a petition against the boy’s mother.

More than 100,000 people have signed the petition, wanting the mother to face charges in Harambe’s death.

But the zoo says they do not regret the decision they made.

The boy’s family released a statement saying he is home and fine.

No charges have been filed against them.
