This case just keeps getting bigger.
That’s because while another beautiful creature had to die, Harambe the Gorilla will most likely be getting justice after all!
Following Saturday’s accident where a 3-year-old child fell into Harambe’s enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo, we’re hearing that local police are currently reviewing the animal’s death to see if there’s actually a case.
In fact, Cincinnati Police spokeswoman Tiffaney Hardy issued a statement to the press on Tuesday, saying:
“After the review, we will determine if charges need to be brought forward. If it is determined charges need to be brought forward, we would then discuss it with the Hamilton County prosecutor’s office.”
But does this mean they’ll be going after the zoo itself or just the boy’s parents?!
Regardless, “harambee” does mean “all pull together” in Swahili, so hopefully enough people can unite to right this wrong!
Do U think anyone deserves to be punished for Harambe’s death??
