 o7 to the greatest great ape of all

 

  Today marks the 3rd anniversary of the death/murder/execution (however you perceived it)  of Harambe the gorilla at the Cincinnati zoo. 

 

  This was a highly publicized incident involving various groups with interest keyed on both sides of the death. A kid fell into the gorilla enclosure at the zoo and Harambe appeared to be trying to make a rescue. He was rough with the child but after all, he was a gorilla. Unfortunately for him the humans did not see it from his perspective and he took a slug from 5.56mm to the head and died from his wounds. The only thing he appeared to be guilty of was trying to help. 

 

  Hero or goat? His fault or ours? None of that matters because was it worth a child’s life? HELL YES!!! 

 

  The Cincinnati zoo was voted the best zoo in the country this year, 3 years after this incident. Oh how quickly we forget.

And if you are going to provide even a bit of information at least have it be accurate. No one is stupid enough to shoot a gorilla with 5.56. It was a single shot .308 or .306.

I don't know much about it but you have to look at it from the zoo workers perspective, a child's life on the line, child could easily be killed in seconds, even it wasn't trying to hurt it, people think different under pressure. I would definitely not take the risk and shoot the gorilla too. Just my thought.

I always assumed the Normandy supremacy map design was in honor of Harambe

  I originally heard on the local news and that 5.56 AR was the rifle and cartridge, I’m live less than an hour from Cincinnati. According to what I can find Now though, that is not correct. 

 

  I see where someone has stated it was a Winchester model 70 chambered in 375 Holland & Holland, big game cartridge from a proven classic hunting rifle. (They sniped him)

  I know right... the 375 H&H needs a nerf. All the nub zoo workers are carrying them and it’s made the place stale and boring.  

 

  Maybe if he hadn’t just rushed to 500lbs and actually learned something before he was turned loose in the enclosure he would have known what to do when the kid fell in. A better tutorial might have helped him and that one shot was probably the only shot the camping nub with the derp made that whole day.

The next time that we ‘toon, we’re doing it for Harambe.

Harambe was obviously the victim of rigged matchmaking.
