In 1986, five-year-old Levan Merrit fell into the Gorilla Enclosure at the Jersey Zoo in the process, suffering skull fractures, head, and arm inquires being knocked out cold. However, the gentle giant Silverback Gorilla Jambo protected Merrit while gently caressed the five year old until emergency services pulled the young boy out of the pit.
This heart-warming story occurred again 30 years later (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/gorilla-trying-protect-four-year-8076239) when another gorilla protected a child who fell into the Gorilla pit once again and pulled the child to a safe place. Sadly the ignorant zookeepers blinded by their own prejudices towards the animals they sadistically cage for fun, shot this gorilla dragging the child to safety being too lazy to observe the gorilla’s was in fact rescuing the child. Furthermore, the zookeepers callously shot the gorilla while he was moving the child to safer unconcerned that their shots could have also killed the child being dragged to safety by the gorilla!
The time has come to stop the ignorance and prejudice concerning gorillas! How many more gorillas will have to die at the hands of ignorant human-centric prejudices until we understand too late the gentle protective nature of these animals?
How long will animals such as gorillas have to deteriorate and suffer in the cruel unsanitary conditions of zoos just for human pleasure until we realize they belong in their natural habitat free from human interference? Will it take the death of a child at the hands of stray zookeeper bullets intended for the gorilla moving the child to safety to realize that gorillas were the first to protect the children who fell into gorilla enclosures?
