В зоопарке США убили гориллу, в вольер которой упал трехлетний мальчик

Workers at the Cincinnati zoo in the United States shot a gorilla in the enclosure to which the child fell, the BBC reported.

Three-year-old boy climbed over the barrier and fell into the ditch. The child grabbed the 17-year-old male gorilla named Harambe, weighing about 180 pounds, and then dragged through the water and seated in front of him.

Ten minutes later, emergency personnel shot and killed a zoo gorilla. The child was hospitalized with injuries that are not life-threatening.

As explained zoo Director Thane Maynard, the experts decided not to use a soporific substance, because it does not instantly.

According to Maynard, it is unlikely the gorilla was going to attack the child, but the situation was too unpredictable to do otherwise.

Harambe was in the Cincinnati zoo in 2014.
