Michelle Gregg Isiah

The parents of the toddler who fell or jumped into the Gorilla World exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo, resulting in the death of a beloved primate, are asking the public to donate money to the zoo in the gorilla's name.

Deonne Dickerson, 33, and Michelle Gregg, 32, say they are "thankful" that the zoo's SWAT team took out the gorilla named Harambe, who was standing guard over the couple's son, Isiah, 4, after he fell into the moat on Saturday.

In a statement released by the family Wednesday, Gregg wrote: "We continue to praise God for His grace and mercy, and to be thankful to the Cincinnati Zoo for their actions taken to protect our child.

"We are also very appreciative for the expressions of concern and support that have been sent to us.

"Some have offered money to the family, which we do not want and will not accept. If anyone wishes to make a gift, we recommend a donation to the Cincinnati Zoo in Harambe’s name."

Meanwhile, the couple is under investigation by the Cincinnati Police Department.

CPD spokeswoman Tiffaney Hardy told The New York Post: "We’re looking into the incidents that led up to the incident."

But skeptical observers question why the police aren't looking into the actions of the zoo workers who shot an innocent animal.

Witnesses say Isiah repeatedly begged his mother to let him swim with the gorillas in the moat. But she told him no. Moments later, while Gregg was distracted by her other children, Isiah crawled under a railing, over some rocks, and through some bushes into the exhibit.

Witnesses heard a splash, and the 450-pound gorilla ambled over to the spot where Isiah landed and stood protectively over him.

As the crowd screamed and yelled, the agitated primate grabbed Isiah by the leg and dragged him through the shallow water to higher ground and safety.

Instead of rewarding Harambe with sweets or fruit for protecting the child, the overzealous members of the so-called "Dangerous Animal Response Team (DART)" grabbed high-powered rifles and shot him dead.

It took 17 minutes for the team to arrive at the gorilla exhibit.

Zoo director Thane Maynard admitted the team practiced killing an animal after 2 lions attacked a man and were shot dead in the Santiago, Chile zoo last month.

The 17-year-old western lowland gorilla is part of a dying species that will soon be extinct.

  • That’s Interesting

    Good for them...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I see they are going to be ignorant and enjoy their 15 minutes of fame instead of fading to black and moving on with their lives.

    *sigh*

  • MissyJ

    Can we let this story go and the family alone? Thankfully this lil boy was saved, by any means necessary. RIP Harambe better safe than sorry

  • Buttercup

    Can we build a bridge and get over this moat already?

    Hey sweetie....i keep missing u...:kiss:

  • zeta4life

    Hey missy poo!!

  • Trey

    A zookeeper who works with gorillas wrote a lengthy post about how the gorillas was NOT standing guard over the boy and how even though Gorillas are "gentle" at 400 lbs there was no other choice. She also mentioned that Zoos have been changing the gorilla exhibits to make it more intimate all while making them more dangerous as we witnessed.

  • Sucker Free

    Tragic but necessary

    Harambe was magnificent...the zoo froze his sperm so his gene pool will live on hopefully

  • Mystery User

    When will someone encourage them to sue the zoo for their negligence? LOL - I know the devil don't need any help, but if they're (the kids family) going to be dicks about it just be a complete dick.
    Keep Bay Bay kids at the house!

  • Trey

    Sad situation...

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Yet, after 17 minutes with Harambe, the boy was still alive and well.

  • Buttercup

    Hey babe :kiss:

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    why are we worried about some gorillas? we can't even eat them. lol

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No. But I know Isiah was alive and well after he spent 17 minutes with Harambe.

  • Soon2BWife

    When he "fell" into Harambe's crib were the parents speaking on their cell phones or were they talking on their cell phones?

  • iWasteTime

    Another POST!!
    For real? This chit happens once a darn year, did we even get a post about the kid that fell last year in the Cheetah exhibit at the Cleveland zoo or the leopard getting at the child at the Kansas Zoo?
    The name of the parents and children in the above incidents weren't even released ... let's move on!

  • MissyJ

    Hey Z4L

  • Yoni

    THIS is so getting on my nerves. Folks want the parent(s) charged, but not nary ONE YT folk was charged or brought into question when it happened to them.

    Charge her/them. Then charge them white bitches that leave their babies in the hot car to die. Yep, I'm Harambe mad.

  • zeta4life

    Hey sandra...so sorry to hear abt your friend..

  • Yoni

    Keep animals out of captivity. Leave them in their natural habitat and build something for the "betterment" of America.

    Hey Zeta!!!! You still on vacay? I'm sitting here at my desk eating peanut brittle and sipping my water.

  • Just Keya

    We still talking about this?! The thing we should focus on is that the child is alive and well. Animals are just that. Animals. And in a zoo or not they are unpredictable. So no, they should not of taken any chances with this child's life. Smh

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Dear Yt people stop hunting animals for sport. We wouldn't have this problem if your blood lust wasn't so high. Yes I'm aware that there are black poacher's BUT WHO ARE THESE BLACK POACHERS WORKING FOR? ? Y'all damn near killed off the buffalo, Elephant's for their ivory, and the the Dodo no longer exist that's to y'all . God only know what other animals y'all murdered off , smh.

  • Yoni

    Sweetie, you don't have to tell me. I already know. However, they are not on "display" such as the animals in the zoo.

  • Milani

    He sure does, with his mean little self :)

  • Bam Bam Li

    Yeah I think at this time they should just move on and keep their mouths closed. We know you're thankful your child is safe, now go be parents and go live a safe life and maybe keep a better eye on your children in the future.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Oh my goodness!!!

  • Amel

    Not for entertainment though.

    Yall crazy!!!!...lol

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Dude who left his kid to fry in car in ATL and then lied about it was in news recently. Im sorry fren. They charge the absolute hell out of parents these days. Black and white. Heffa whose sons got ate by pit bull is on the run with her other kids right now. One son died. Other boy made it. They were trying to arrest her at the boy who died fune. She skipped her own kid fune to avoid being arrested and fled with all her living kids (4 I think).

  • LibraGirlonly

    Agreed

  • nucynu25

    A pop on the ass or thigh , ain't never hurt nobody. And after thAt a genuine convo abt why that ass got popped & the consequences of almost giving me a hearr attack.

  • Ms..N

    Black families are rare these days so I salute them for being a team unit for their children.

    Me too

  • Sucker Free

    Pink toes...smh

  • Just Keya

    SOME parents do any damn thing and think it's ok and yes they need jail. I don't think this lady needs jail. She needs help with supervision. All her babies are small. No older ones to help out.

  • DYmondgurl

    Neither is gorilla abuse

  • zeta4life

    I AM TALKING ABT A REAL PERSON WITH SANDRA...BUT I SEE HOW IT LOOK WITH THE TOPIC...

    LMAO!!

  • Mystery User

    You upvoted that comment, tho

  • PettyEyezPrime

    My brother and his BM. I promise I've said 3 prayers and I'm still ready to get in my car. I have school work that's due so THATS whats keeping me seated. I'm so mad I'm shaking and I'm hot. I hate people who use others to build and get ahead, then move on leaving others to clean up the destruction they caused. Literally and Figuratively.

  • LibraGirlonly

    It wasn't necessary.

  • nucynu25

    I told y'all if this was Tim or Scott it wouldn't even be a debate . It's a damn shame , a gorilla is more important than our sons ..

  • Genia Gouch

    do you feel the parents don't bear part of the responsibility in this incident? Granted, they were not grossly negligent...but negligent none the less.

  • SG

    Right. I don't wanna hear nothing else about this. Especially not from them.

  • Just Keya

    Popping kids is not abuse. Breathing them up is. Burning them is. Leaving them home alone to eat dust and old lunchables is. Locking them up is. You get where I am going with this.

  • DivineMsM

    Harambe HAD to DIE so the HUMAN could live. Plain and simple. If you (not you specifically) don't like, O DAMN WELL, he dead and he isn't coming back

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    That dude in ATL who left the son in the car pissed me off. Now him I hope they give his ass a big long needle. Went to Chick Fil A and was pure sexting while the baby baked. and had SEARCHED on how long it takes for a kid to die in a car.

  • Just Keya

    All of this. With an addition of #YesISaidIt and #YouWillDeal I guess y'all would rather the child had died. Smfh.

  • CaramelDrop

    FTB Yoni! You're too good!?

  • Genia Gouch

    I don't get your statement of the parents being ignorant, if you are basing your opinion on the above post. Are your observations of it being ignorant based on another media source?

  • nucynu25

    The parents made a mistake ..the woman was dealing with 3 little kids at one time ..YOu know what, why we not talking about charging the daddy too ..wasn't he there..uhm , I forgot the black women always us the 1st to get dragged ..

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • Ms..N

    It was a accident was clicking the reply button...I didn't know how to remove it..

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Oh his ass is as good as gone. The reason he was in news recently, is because the case was moved OUT of metro ATL. They want to be sure his ass dont start hollering NOTHING about no misconduct. They want to be SURE he gets sentenced lol.

    Not enough to go to jail.

  • Yoni

    Don't be sorry. I don't know of that case. However, I know of cases where parent's WEREN'T charged. Car AND zoo incidents. And they were mainly of another hue, is my point.

  • Just Keya

    Now hold on. Was this a jump into the enclosure type thing or he had a ways to go to get to the animals? Because now it's starting to sound like they could of got him before he fell....Now I wanna see the tape too. Because if they saw him and told him to come back and made zero moves to grab him before the situation went to far, I might not feel the same. I thought this was a two second thing. The child was climbing over rocks and a bushes?

  • surprise2012

    She looks happy. Good for her.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    No they're not. What LA LA land do y'all live in? I see black families everyday. Just the other day I say a BLACK man walking with his daughter strapped to his chest. I always see black men pushing strollers or black men spending time with their children. I saw a black man on the bus with his daughter coloring too. I live in NY I see black men with their children or families everyday.

    The gorilla will probably be cremated or the body donated to science where they will do all types of experiments.

  • SpillyNillie

    I'm pissed. People don't understand or simply don't GAF about their actions. These parents could go to jail and the children will likely end up in foster care. The destruction of an entire family all because these gotdamn pinks wanna get mad over a damn gorilla. Has anyone ever seen the affects of foster care on a child...maybe I'm thinking too far ahead. But I'm certainly in my feelings...

    They'll find a way to squeeze it in there. Just like they brought up the father's PAST criminal record. But didn't bring into question any of the other incidents that have happened with YT folks when THEIR children (or drunk adults) fall off over into an exhibit.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I keep hearing he was there. He wasnt there.

  • Just Keya

    A bill? Nope. Why? That's why the zoo is insured. They KNOW accidents will happen. They have to plan for this.

  • Just Keya

    No. Just someone being rude.

  • nucynu25

    No , boo you using logic.. Mfs dragging up they crimal history but not once have I heard a history of neglect...lets tear a family a part over a gorilla.
    .oh okay great...and these same mfs going to wake up and eat bacon & eggs ..and fry or bake some chicken for dinner

  • nucynu25

    Why the zoo ain't have better safety measure put in place ?

  • Just Keya

    Speaking of....*walks off in search of food*

  • nucynu25

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    That's not true. I guess I can only speak for my own state, but here there has to be one daycare worker for ever 5 children.

  • Just Keya

    Right. Because how this kid climb in? Did anyone else see him? If so, why did no one get him down? So all these damn adults around and y'all just let him climb in? Why they not responsible as well? I know he is not everyone's kid but shoot, you KNOW that's a dangerous situation.

  • Just Keya

    I had Togo back up and count the number of kids in the picture. So how are some of y'all saying she had too many kids?! I have five at my house. And so what, I should of only had one or two? Five is not some obscene amount of kids. Y'all need to cut it.

  • MissHarlem

    Just for shits and giggles imagine if we stood behind this woman publicly and the way the family is betrayed as well as any of us then maybe we can start demanding respect on how we are portrayed. Now privately we can let her have it because wtf. But yea whatever ???

  • melissaisasnob

    I think the number of kids are being looked at by the same people who have concluded that she wasn't able to keep up with the one, much less 3 more.

    Hopefully lessons are learned from this near all the way bad experience on future outings they go on be it help from other family members.

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    I went hard at first...like why they didn't do this....but as a parent...I remember coming home from the grocery store..taking my toddler daughter out the car seat, then trying to get the bag of groceries and her lil ass broke free and ran down the driveway into the street......I'm mean shyt can happen in a split second. ...but, my take away....leave her ass strapped in the car seat until all shyt is unloaded and in the house....

  • Yoni

    Cause for a legit, viable beatdown.

  • OvertheMississippi

  • Just Keya

    Out at the zoo alone with the kids, I could see how she would need help. At the same time, you can't tell someone she can't keep up with her kids for one bad thing. And you can't just not ever take your kids anywhere. They need to get out as well. At the same time, he should of never been able to get in with the animals.

  • zeta4life

    I have my daughter's 3 since she died unexpectedly. I still have one at home. We all went into a furniture store and the sales lady said, "Wow, so many kids." I was like look lady no one is going to mess up your cheap furniture.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    What I will say is that it's plenty of ppl with 5, 6 kids and they kids ain't ran in no gorilla bin. He was oviously a kid who had behavior issues. They need to get a grip on him and do whatever they need to do to ensure this don't happen agsin.

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    --->we here<----lol

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Witnesses described him flipping over the railing and disappearing behind the bushes in lightening speed. His actions were deliberate. But mom knows what he's capable of. He's one of those kids that needs a leash because you know they are going to get into something cause they bad as hail. That's why I'm never mad at parents that use the child leash. Ain't no telling what kind of terror they got on their hands.

  • yelpforhelp

  • alwayznillin

    Although, the gorilla did not severely harm the boy the moments he had him. It all could have changed in the blink of an eye. The gorilla was 400 lbs, his manhandling of the 40 lb child, could have easily led to that child's death in an instant. I support valuing the life of the child over that of the gorilla.

  • Luvn_it

    B/c it would have taken a few minutes for the tranquilizer to take effect, and shooting him with a needle would've got him riled up and angry. I don't agree with them killing him either, but this is Their reason why.

  • Molly Church

    The Gorilla never showed aggression. He even stood him up & dragged him by his shirt once he got him out the corner.

    Killing him was "Senseless ?

  • Molly Church

  • Anna Maria

    They made a perfectly normal statement, turned down donations offered, and now they can move on with their lives. Better that they make a statement than have all of the haters speaking for them such as the semi-literate white woman who started the change.org petition protesting the killing of the gorilla. I say semi-literate because several people went online and edited her original statement because it was so filled with grammatical and spelling errors. She was on the news today and said she "NEVER" took her eyes off her two boys when they were growing up. Any parent and non-parent know that is a bald-faced lie. I wonder if these 500,000 petition signers would have behaved the same way had the child been white. Was it wrong for the Mother to be distracted by her other children? Absolutely not because it is not humanly possible to keep two eyes on all of her children at the same time. I feel sorry for her and her husband. The animal was part of an endangered species but suppose he had killed the child? He was killed because the zoo keepers and other officials knew there is such a thing as instinct in animals that cannot be controlled. He was trying to protect the boy but at any instant his instinct could just as easily caused him to harm the little child. Voila!

  • Anna Maria

    They can still sue the zoo for failing to erect sufficient protective barriers.

  • Anna Maria

    Says who? Accepting offerings would not have negated their legal right to sue for failure to erect proper barricades.

  • Anna Maria

    It's based on Sandra's ignorant, biased statement where she blamed the victim.

  • Anna Maria

    Would you have hidden your head in the sand if this was your child or would you have made an intelligent statement like they did?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That's my point. Turn down all media attention and all interviews.
    Find a friend or family member who is well-spoken and have them answer any questions.

    Go into hiding.
    Don't speak to anyone.
    Go about your life but how did all of those pictures of them get leaked to the media?
    When will the Facebook generation learn that you don't need to post your entire life on Facebook because it can and will be used against you especially if you are black.
    Obviously no one learned anything from what the media did to Trayvon Martin and his friend Rachael by using their Facebook posts to demonize them and discredit them.

  • Anna Maria

    Right!!! Sounds like some people would rather the child had been killed to save the gorilla. It bothers me that people are so quick to blame the mother? The zoo is fortunate that this is the first time this has occurred. As a result, zoos around the country are rushing to update their safety barriers because they know they aren't adequate. Guilty? Perhaps.

  • Ceezus

    Yeah, how? By showing gratitude.

  • Anna Maria

    I wish the gorilla had been dragging you around the moat instead of the little boy.

  • Anna Maria

    He wasn't well after being bruised from being dragged across the moat, and immersed in water that could have caused him to strangle.

  • yelpforhelp

    Says the iron clad insurance policy that every legal zoo has..........says that agreement they would have been required to sign before receiving any money from the zoo. That's what a settlement is.
    Now they can receive as much money from the media and well wishers as they want, no cap on that.

  • Ceezus

    All they said was thank you. They probably feel bad for Harambe too since the media portraying them as deadbeat criminals.

    And they are trying to honor Harambe.

    How bad does a child have to be to do this. Most kids have some fear. Not this one. That was a long fall. They had to shoot the gorilla. This mother assumed everyone was going to find out it was them. Shouldve just kept quiet. The zoo has signs about watching your kids.

  • yelpforhelp

    I don't know about people. No one knew her........UNTIL she put HER family out there. I don't know anyone who thinks the little boy should have been killed and I can't speak for other people.
    I believe she should've have had a leash on his asz. I believe he shouldn't have jumped and/or scaled his asz down there with the gorillas. I believe the gorilla shouldn't have been shot. I believe she should've been thankful that her son is safe. I believe you shouldn't put EVERYTHING on social media.....but when you it is, what it is.

  • yelpforhelp

    The zoo didn't ask her to have her son jump, dive or scale his bad asz down to the gorillas.....but you didn't ask me that.
    Legally there are some things you do and places you go that you assume a certain risk. Go to your local zoo's website. They only have minimal liability and since she jumped her asz on social media and said what she said..........yeah ALL OF THAT.

  • yelpforhelp

    If she was watching her child then everyone wouldve had a good day. If you know your child then act accordingly. He wanted to swim with the gorillas. The mom and dad shouldve taught him to not run off. Was she by herself, she got 4 kids. She shouldve asked for some help. F up everyones day and got a 17 year old gorilla killed.

    I hope this woman understands that she's the most hated woman on earth right now. The kid is bad as h#ll. Who the heck wants to swim with some damn gorillas. Why don't she donate some damn money in the gorilla's name. It was her devil spawn that got the ape killed.

  • barbeez

    He is the only child who has done that. That alone speaks volumes. His bad a@@ got dragged because he just had to crawl under a fence....climb through rocks and leap into a damn moat. I wonder if the boy is slow because a normal child knows to stay away from a gorilla.

  • Keri

    If it was a white kid, the public would be singing a different tune. Every person would be wondering why it took them that long to kill the gorilla.

  • lovelygamour

    I wonder do they offer their services to humans. Cause everyones printer is broke during funerals.

    "It took 17 minutes for the team to arrive at the gorilla exhibit."

Right now the DA is debating on whether or not to charge the parents. Until that debate was over I wouldn't say anything because you of....(well you know that whole anything you say or do can be used against you in the court of law) thing that cops say..... the family needs to be quiet until the coast is clear.

  • Tammy GILBERT

    as soon as that child broke away she should of grabbed him she should been that close to him sorry a mother should know her child she should of known he would bare watching more holding his hand keeping him very close.i am not here to bash this lady ok but you are at a zoo with live creatures all around you. lazy parenting too many kids these ladies are kids themselfves.like the old mother in a shoe had so many kids she didn"t know what to freakin do.but she works at a day care watching over people kids tho

  • Tammy GILBERT

    LADIES CONTROLL YOUR KIDS EVERYWHERE THEY GO GEEZ DO WHAT YOU MUST

  • Tammy GILBERT

    YES SHE NEEDED HELPand if she did have help they were no a help to her i"m so sure she knew this.that child is just use to running around like this all the time yes she told him no but just matter factly he did not take her serious.it happens all the time with them we just goot to see her on a national t v level that"s all

  • Tammy GILBERT

    they sooooo wrong i will not do it please stop

  • Tammy GILBERT

    these kids mannn they are something else and adults are aruging with them act like they are very scared of them i have seen this with my own eyes some still have pampers on why? because they allow it if this don"t show the world how follks should try to raise a child nothing will.now look she don"t need to get any death threats no money are anything that is crazy man.on the other hand she should pay for something get folks att i'm tellin you it will.sorry it has to be that way but you have slackers out there with kids running everywhere.may be she should of made it a day when the dad could of been there to just saying

  • Tammy GILBERT

    i don"t think he was there she should of waited for him to have time off from work to take the kids where he could have major control over them

  • Tammy GILBERT

    being reported he was at work or something

  • Tammy GILBERT

    just saw on the news no he was not there.others was with her tho.they might of had kids to

  • Pamela

    He is 3 years old, not slow.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There was a man there with her. Witnesses said she struggled to keep him from jumping into the moat after the boy.

  • Tammy GILBERT

    just working at a day care makes it look worse i"m hearing the day care is under seige the facbooks had to be taken down this lady is getting death threats petion to have her kids taken away and charged lordt

  • Wayup!

    Listen I don't agree with people threatening this woman's life....but I do believe that because she works in the childcare industry and is responsible for other families children she needs to be held accountable for what happened that day. I felt the same way when everybody thought the mom was white.
    How can she go to work with a clear conscious knowing that at some point she dropped the ball and was distracted enough to have this happen to her OWN child. ..parents should be wary of her and the organization she represents. ..

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Lol...

  • SunRiseBlossom

    LMBO!!!

  • Wayup!

    This ^^^^is the reason I made a sarcastic comment abt her using her government assistance check to donate...like how dare you ask anyone for a donation to the zoo..when she perpetuated this whole thing. ..Chile please ?

  • AListDiva29

    I give it no more than 3 months, and they will be suing to recoup the costs for the medical bills the child might have. The parents should of been paying attention to him seeing that the 2 others girls look older. He should of been in a stroller or held by a parent!

  • AListDiva29

    Sadly gorillas like these, and many other animals are in much more danger in their "natural" habitat, because of poachers and the destruction of their habitat!

  • Yoni

    Same can be said for the daily slaughter of cows, pigs, and chicken for food.

  • Rosalie Parker

    If the gorillas could speak they would tell the zoo they would rather be in their native habitats doing what gorillas do as opposed to being in captivity with people gawking at them. The way that child was able to get by that barrier says a lot. This was an accident waiting to happen and it did. I am sick of these people raising so much hell about killing a gorilla to save a child's life. It's a shame it happened but the zoo made the right choice. To me it is telling them to let the animals remain free in their natural habitat and stop using them to make money.

  • Rosalie Parker

    You have a racist man who murdered an innocent child (Trayvon Martin) who got off scot free and he is profiting from that murder by auctioning off the gun he used to commit the murder. Where is the outrage about that. This incident received more media hype than that.

  • bemetoo

    Uuuh

  • Go Head With That

    Exactly. That gorilla went CPS on them..WHY IS YOUR CHILD DOWN HERE? YOU CANT WATCH HIM? SEND HIS DADDY TO COME SEE ME AND GET THIS BOY, WE NEED TO TALK. ITS TWO OF YALL??'AND HE IN MY HOUSE!! But yall dumbazz shoot ME???

  • Go Head With That

    Exactly.

  • Go Head With That

    When she said no that should have been it. She knows her child..If she knows.he doesnt listen she should have had him secure. I knew not to let Nicholas loose with no eyes on him anywhere. Hands on him. He was quick and quiet. Everyone has their opinions but had the child died from jumping they would have charged the woman

  • Go Head With That

    This. I have one that would ahve tried it. I would have had him between my knees with my feet crossed behind him feeding him something LOL. Seriously. He would have to be touching my skin in a setting like that. It was ky responsibility. Killing part is another parent was able to chase the child to try and stop him and the mom still didnt know it was hers. Its all done now but sad any life was lost.

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    You mean to tell me it's one of Bebe's kids that fell in?!?! #WellDayum

    If that Gorilla wanted to hurt that little boy he would've done so since the little boy''Climbed into'' I mean ACCIDENTALLY FELL into the cage! -_-

  • Ant Hill

    Why hasn't Trayvon father taken care of that situation? I don't get your point.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    An animal was killed so a child could live, why is there so much outrage and press about a decision to save a HUMAN BEING over an animal??

  • Molly Church

    Yes, I've heard several people say something ain't right with that kid. ?Kids would normally stay close 2 the parents when wild animals r in view & within close range. Kids have instinct, They r not "Stupid.

    This kid is not all there & probably ready 2 get back 2 the Zoo.?

  • kimbee

    Agree with most of what you said, except the very last part. Older children are still CHILDREN, and should be treated as such, not as a built-in babysitter or co-parent (which is what starts happening when people have more children than they can easily control). It is the PARENTS' job to watching their kids, and this shouldn't be a task delegated to older offspring (unless they're adult).

  • kimbee

    You wicked, wicked person...lol

  • kimbee

    I understand your sentiment, but I'm torn. No one should be saluted and celebrated for doing what they are SUPPOSED to do. That's like me congratulating grown people for wiping properly after they go to the toilet. I think some things (like being a team unit for one's children) are basic should be expected.

  • Rosalie Parker

    Tell it to the people who shot the gorilla. We didn't make the decision to put the gorilla down so why are you asking us why killing the gorilla was necessary. I say it was the right decision.

  • Rosalie Parker

    No - says the zoo.

  • Rosalie Parker

    Because TiffaniZ said so.

  • Jozie723

    This topic annoys me..... it's this simple. Humans over animals. This was an animal locked in a cage for human enjoyment... for profit. A child's life was in danger and they did exactly what they should have done. All the experts agree that it was the best course of action. But I guess all of perfect internet people know more than the experts.

  • Rosalie Parker

    The trolls have invaded this site. Do you feel the outrage about the choice to save a little black boy's over a gorilla. The trolls are everywhere.

  • Jozie723

    I think the zoo is responsible for assuring their exhibits are safe. But I'm not an expert or a lawyer and I don't pretend to be.

  • Jozie723

    Bravo

  • Jusstlookn

    Yes, it remimded me of pay perview of wanting to see a death. Some folks are sick as "Hail"

  • Jozie723

    Just because someone does something different then you would do it doesn't make them stupid. I have had it with all these perfect internet people. It's astounding the judgment that is placed on people and situations that we don't even have first hand knowledge of.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    It's a rhetorical question (a question that doesn't require an answer) based on the article...

  • Jozie723

    Go into hiding.... um they have to work to live, children can't be uprooted. They have to live in their truth. There is no reason for them to hide. It was a tragic accident. People should stop being judgmental pricks.

  • Jozie723

    They would have been calling for the swat team then... but since it wasn't them... it was all fun and games. What happened to people and compassion?

  • Jozie723

    Cause those parent weren't brown.... so they couldn't be thrown to the wolves.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Go into hiding means don't accept interviews from television or newspaper.
    Delete all of your social media accounts.
    Remember the black mother who slapped her son during the riots in Baltimore and decided that the media was her 'friend' so she accepted every invitation from every show that would have on and then the media turned on her and started repeating the fact that she had six children and a criminal record?
    Do you understand what I mean?
    This couple has three other children and they go to school. Who knows what type of harassment they will suffer because their parents couldn't stay off the news or Facebook.
    I wouldn't be surprised if someone has contacted child protective services to give this couple a visit.
    But its their doing because they wanted the spotlight.

  • Rosalie Parker

    Whatever - they made the right decision.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    OK, that's YOUR opinion. Don't knock ppl who don't agree with you...

  • GubmentCheeze

    If you have had it sweetie I suggest you just log off because thats what opinions and platforms are for. If the world was everyone thinking the same thing it would be boring. Just as I said before the parents should not speak because they may be held liable for anything they say and should be quiet until the DA decides whether or not to press charges. SMH you want to shame someone for a comment but you dont even know about the law....

  • yelpforhelp

    Nobody else jumped in.

  • yelpforhelp

    The reason WHY they are in a zoo is too keep people from killing them. From my point of view WATCH YOUR CHILDREN! A zoo watches animals and they pretty much stay in their lane.

  • Angela Flowers

    You sound like all those white bltches talking about putting leashes on children. Yes, she should have been paying more attention to her child but any bltch who would even consider leashing their child is automatically a "too occupied negligent parent" if they feel they have to scoop to that level. I don't want to hear that crap about the leash ties around the wrist either. Leashes are for animals and that's that!

  • Rosalie Parker

    I wish they had put your a-z-z down and not the gorilla. Now be gone!

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Great, as am I. I wasn't offended or coming at you I was simply asking y the shooting of the Gorilla was necessary if the post said the Gorilla posed no threat? That's it.

  • Rosalie Parker

    I posted because I wanted to. You trolls have no power over me. The little boy's life was worth saving but yours isn't.

  • Rosalie Parker

    The animals are in the zoo for the zoo to make money. You trolls act like we shot that gorilla. Make your point to somebody else because your point means nothing to me.

    I disagree because you cannot second guess animals but you are asking the wrong person. I did not shoot the gorilla.

  • Gerome Wright

    These people have been DEMONIZED by the media and on roasted on social media so it's nothing wrong with them responding to some of these reports. That was THEIR SON and I'm sure if it was yours, you'd probably do the same thing. Folks like you need to stop passing judgement on their parenting skills too because an accident can happen to anyone. That zoo needs to put up a damn fence to prevent this from occurring again in the future.

  • Gerome Wright

    And they SHOULD sue the zoo.

  • Gerome Wright

    Thank you. Folks act like because some overzealous white folks are mad about a damn gorilla everybody should go hide. It was a WILD ANIMAL that should of been shot if it meant saving that child. And the ZOO is 100% responsible because they should have the proper barrier erected to prevent this from happening.

  • Gerome Wright

    Oh Shut UP! Animals are ANIMALS. They are NOT HUMAN and shouldn't be put on the same level as humans. The Bible tells you that! And the zoo is nothing more than an animal JAIL made by humans to enjoy animals that should be in their natural habitat any way. Some of the same folks crying about this gorilla HUNT and eat a pound of chicken wings during the Superbowl, turkey at Thanksgiving and ribs on July 4. What the hell would you want done if that was YOUR SON? You self righteous folks will mourn a gorilla and walk past a hungry, homeless person with no problem. smdh

    I am very upset about the young child missing in Japan. I hope they find that little boy but it's been days and there are bears in the area. I can't believe they left him there for punishment.

  • Allihave2say

    mmph if that story is even true. Remember, they left, drove home, drove back, then waited, pondering if they should call the police and if so, what lie to tell. I believe they killed the boy & tossed to the woods to get rid of the evidence at least that's their lie.

    No one is saying they should be shot, given the same fate as the boy or eaten by bears. No one has gone to the forest to lay flowers.

    BW are under attack. Guard yourselves.

  • Allihave2say

    Ridiculousness at the core. I can imagine being distracted and something happens so soon, I work with children everyday. However, the enclosure the zoo now has, should have been there. It only takes one time.

    People are dumb and go with the media. They wanted a villain & target the black father as absentee (he was working) then the mother is now unfit and should have been shot. Sh!t happens.

    No body is mad about the Japs dumping their kid on purpose to bears but people are killing this mother for looking away… geesh!

  • yelpforhelp

    Boo she was on FB at the time(allegedly). I give 0 f^cks whether what her race is....I find fault in her big asz not RACING to save that child.

  • Rosalie Parker

    Sounds good to me

  • Rosalie Parker

    The bottom line is they made the decision to save the little boy and sacrifice the ape. There is no question about whether or not they made the right decision. They can go get another gorilla to replace the one they killed but the little boy only has one life and can't be replaced.

  • Stan4NoOne

    The mother was reckless and irresponsible with her child.

  • Jozie723

    Nobody should be able too.... that's why they have implemented new safety measures since the previous measures have been proven to be insufficient.

    I actually agree with your points on deleting social media and not doing interviews. If that's what you meant by go into hiding I agree.

  • Rosalie Parker

    I don't care who you fu$k with. Just go away. I don't know you - don't want to know you and I definitely don't like you. Apparently the people protesting the killing of the gorilla know more than the zoo keepers because that's what set this off. The little boy's life was worth saving - yours isn't.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I'm not passing judgment on their parenting skills.
    My point is that it was dumb of her to even respond to people much less show her face when she responded.
    There are a lot of hateful people out there and instead of answering the siren call of the media people need to keep a low profile and ride out the media storm and hope the next big thing makes people forget the situation with which you were involved.

  • the guest

    They are criminally minded, have the history to show for it. Anyone consider poor excuse for a "mom" ignored him on purpose and told him to jump in to set up for a lawsuit.

    Which would explain her lackadaisical attitude and response to his falling. Something tells me this whole thing was a scam on the parent's part.

    Criminals involve their children in scams all the time. These are grifters and hustlers and dad's the ring leader. They knew they wanted to sue the zoo.

    Evil.

    Covering her bases. Sick people commit crimes even murder and call the police themselves to pretend they're innocent as a cover up.

    Why wasn't she watching her youngest child for an lengthy period of time? #neglect

  • the guest

    Classically unaccountable.

  • the guest

    Normal children don't seek danger. Even slow and disabled children don't seek danger.

    A child raised neglectfully in an environment where bad behavior that causes harm to themselves and others is dismissed as an "accident" will act psychotic and like a sociopath.

    What this child did was crazy and the mother's unrepentant and unaccountable negligence even crazier.

    I would not want my children in a classroom with this child. I would not want this mother, who has the nerve to work in a preschool, anywhere near my children.

  • Chuck

    The zoo should also be investigated. Wonder how the child was able to jump into the water?? Also, why did it take 17 minutes for a zookeeper to arrive??

  • Chuck

    I concur. Since day one, I thought the parents looked fishy.

  • Chuck

    She knew she would have been prosecuted had she not called 911. This is a scam!

  • the guest

    Thank you. Either the kid is a complete child psychopath and sociopath or they cased this zoo and planned this entire thing. This kid did this because his criminal parents told him to. But they didn't plan on the gorilla being murdered.

    If the zoo pays them then they pulled off their scam and this family will have their kids slipping in grocery stores for years to come. They need to be prosecuted.

    I knew it was a hustle because all of her actions are against maternal instinct prior to, during, and after the crisis.

  • the guest

    This child was unsupervised long enough for onlookers to try to stop him as he navigated under two barriers, walked through bushes, along a ledge, then the 15ft drop. That's neglect. Her lackadaisical half hearted calls down to him mommy's here, be calm, mommy loves you. Words in a crisis. Where in all this was her mommy sixth sense or maternal protective instinct and reactions? He is her youngest child, her baby, the one who needed her strongest focus. This doesn't add up for me as a mom.

    They would've had to hold me back from climbing down there for my children.

  • the guest

    They said dad was at work. But parents need to know their limitations. This child didn't just become exploratory and disobedient. They knew darn well their kids need two parents or a grandparent or friend along when taking the kids to a public outing.

    Well... I do have the courage to actually use my photo. ...Love is all you need my dear. Positivity is rewarding.. you should try it.

  • CPRMan

    This is scumbag reporting. This is what they actually said, “We continue to praise God for His grace and mercy, and to be thankful to the Cincinnati Zoo for their actions taken to protect our child." Yet the following is what the author decided to write to make it seem they were heartless..... say they are “thankful” that the zoo’s SWAT team took out the gorilla named Harambe, see the difference?

  • Catherine Cooper

    I am totally confused on this story when we received the footage it was clearly a little white boy, so how much did these people get paid to use their family? I can't see a black child telling his mom I'm going in, well I guess I was wrong?!

  • Chan

    Your comment is stupid.

  • DRATON

    Why don't these people move on, and stop making themselves a target of hatred.

  • Painful-Truth

    Hey stupid muthaphucka.....they know how to arouse your ignorant azz. These so called writers now, only write for shock value. Pretty sure she is "thankful". that her child is alive, and not saying she is "thankful the gorilla was killed", that is all a tactic to get less intelligent people, like you, to respond, and give your insensitive remarks. It is very easy for any child to get lost, or get away from their parents, it happens all the time. This was an unfortunate situation, and no one deserves to get blamed. Oh because the child got away from the parent, you have the authority to say she needs parenting classes, because you are judging her, and from what? She was investigated, and trust me, they ran her background, and looked to see if she had any patterns of bad parenting or neglect. Obviously, she did not have any, because if she did, it would have been all over social media by now......what kind of world do we live in, where everyday average people, such as yourself, play the role of a licensed, educated counselor, or family lawyer, and say that she needs parent skills over one unfortunate incident. How about you need cultural training, to understand life, and to understand that no one is perfect, and kids, many times pull away from their parents, get lost, etc., how in the hell do you think so many children get kidnapped in stores, etc., this shit happens. I was driving to work very early in the morning, and a kid was in the middle of the street. I did not jump to the conclusion that he has "bad parents". He could have got out of the house by various reasons. So tired of you righteous, wanna-be goody two shoes, bloggers, without an ounce of empathy, that thinks your shyt don't stick. Until she is found to be a "bad parent", thou should not judge. Tired of you internet heroes, cowards with computers, you stupid muthaphucka. BTW, she is not looking for fame, people such as yourself are keeping the story alive.

  • Painful-Truth

    Your ignorant azz story have no merits. Who allows some of you to even give your opinion? The internet need to be regulated. Too many people with phucked up ideas, and opinions, that indicates their lack of logic. Your story makes no sense. The zoo is not a place where someone "cocks" up a story. Did they sue the zoo? Even if they did, how about the slick white boy lawyer that will get over 90% of the money, for twisting and bending the so called, flawed laws of this country? Dont get me started. Should not have even responded to your post, because it makes no sense. I wish everyone had to pay for every post. That will be the only way to get people to post something meaningful. STFU.

  • Painful-Truth

    DUH!! This is not an everyday occurrence, this is nothing you prepare for. Have you ever heard of ACCIDENT? Or, are you perfect? Did you not hear the telephone call she made to the police? Very easy for some to play the Monday night quarterback over another person life. Always wanna say what they would have done; your dumb ass don't know what you would have done, and if you have never walked in her shoes, STFU. You moron.

  • Painful-Truth

    .....because the parents don't look too sophisticated, they are suspicious, huh? I bet if her parents were dressed different, looked different, they would be judged differently.

  • Painful-Truth

    Such a pathetic phuck. Get a life.

  • Chuck

    You're judging the parents. Who said they don't look sophicated? Those are your words. Shame on you.

  • Chuck

    You need to calm da funk down, Biatch ass mail boy.

  • princesspr

    Yes, how dare they continue to live their lives; but, take a moment to tell people the family is not accepting money donated to them; although, appreciated, but please donated to the Cincinnati Zoo. The nerve of the parents. ((Note the major sarcasm)). Seems to me, ignorance is a road not traveled alone.

    **sigh**

  • princesspr

    If that's the case, ALL parents need parenting classes. I want to see the hand of those parents who hasn't taken their eyes off their child, and their child is's getting into wrongness or is missing. Raise Those Hands high.

  • princesspr

    Oh, but most definitely are. NEWSFLASH: All of your comments screams judgmental.

    What would be dumb is NOT to response. There must be acknowledgement of what people are doing and why they are not taking donations. Why is ths behavior dumb? Not only is a non-response noa smart move it's rude.

    However, I did get a giggle when you said, "hateful people." I always find it amusing when people pick up the mirror, yet not look into the mirror.

  • princesspr

    What truly evil is your entire mind set. Because, you created an entire scenario which NEVER occurred.

  • princesspr

    Oh,Yes..such a scam the family has refused ALL monies donated to them. Didn't realize scam artists where not including taking money part of the scam. Must be a new M.O.

  • Layah Jhene

    They was hush, hush and hiding when everybody was on their @zzes

  • Chuck

    You're such a liar.. these scams have not turned any $$ away. Quit typing lies.

  • princesspr

    I am a liar Typing lies? LOL!!!! LOUDLY! Not I my friend. Tell me when the family had accepted monies.

  • MsKitty MeowMeow

    why wouldn't a parent be thankful that their child is alive and not killed? have a seat, parenting classes? are you even a parent? That shit was an accident. don't just sit down lock yourself in the basement.

  • Tahoedirt

    Fat, lazy and stupid is no way to go thru life

  • Tahoedirt

    I would have preferred they kill the bunch of them rather than harm that beautiful animal- I hate these pigs.

  • I’ve Had Enough

    I'm glad they're not accepting any money. However, a parent has to realize that their kid is a vulnerable, irreplaceable being. To have such negligence is disgusting, and I hear no apology or regret and to that I have no respect for them. And it is a heart breaking situation to which they are totally responsible for.

  • I’ve Had Enough

    Are you kidding!? Kids do reckless things all the time!! He wasnt seeking danger he wanted to go for a swim. I bet it was hot has hell out, maybe he was even dehydrated and tired. I know as a kid if I was sweating in the afternoon heat, not hydrated, and fatigued even the swampiest bodies of water looked appealing. He may have been raised in a neglectful atmosphere, but what really caused this situation was actual negligence by the parents at the moment. You are sooo judgemental to this child's behavior, kids are like squirmy dogs who arent as fast or capable, theyre curious! The kid was not a danger to other kids jesus christ. Or maybe he is but it's not because of his actions in this situation! He's 3 years old for gods sake!
