He was dragging that kid for minutes in that rocky surface... in the slightest he was lucky to not suffer a concussion. Better to not risk anything and shoot the gorilla? Gorillas are savage animals and you can't trust those... I wouldn't hesitate to shoot a gorilla or more to save a human life even if it has been my gorilla for 100 years.
I wouldn't shoot a gorilla if someone willingly tried to befriend with it... maybe if the person begged.

Sorry you can't risk a human life just because there is a Gorilla. No life is more valuable than a humans life.

To be honest for that particular case they couldn't have had a 100% confident scenario where both (kid and gorilla) lives would be saved, so with the slightest risk at the kid's life they had to exchange it with the gorilla's. We wouldn't have known if we could have saved both lives, but it was a split-second decision that had to be made against a risk (as small as it was) with huge consequences. Imagine being the officer at the zoo. Although the alligator thing, well, it's like blaming water when you die of drowning. Accidents hapen.

My suggestion? We need license for parenting.

That's not what I said... Of course the kid had to be saved... But how is a regular gun more accurate than tranquilizers? ;)

Oh that's fair enough, but guess that was the only option available (lethal guns).

We could talk about guns vs no guns again but it probably won't reach anywhere the second time round either :P For what it's worth, I'm very much against guns too.

There's also a point of whether an average tranquiliser or stunner would actually work or not, and it could agitate the animal if it doesn't. They are never designed for animals as far as I know and it takes precious little power to ice a human but gorillas would be a totally different story,

Makes sense... I am no animal rights "weirdo" or anything - but people blaming the animal for following its instinct is also wrong...

I saw a video a few days ago of a baby gorilla in some other zoo and a kid trying to touch it through the glass, then the mother gorilla comes and carries the baby gorilla away. It was captioned "Parenting done right". :lol:

Alligator drags toddler into water near Disney resort - father tried to grab the child [source]

Tragic but what was a child doing near water with alligators in it? I've never been to Walt Disney World so I don't know whether this family was in this particular area, but that place is notorious for having living alligators.

I have but in Florida it should be common sense that if there is fresh water pond or lagoon that there will probably be gators in it.

Also if you're chased by a gator (going near a nest) run in zig zags because the gator wont run straight they will try to zig zag too.

PS I live in Florida and an hour away from Orlando

It was a no swimming zone, the toddler and family where on the beach as many other families where. From what I heard the baby was only about 1 to 2 feet in the water, trying to imagine what it's like to be a pare T, idk if I would say no to my child (if I had one) just barley going in. I think this is more unfortunate than the parents being idiots. They could've been smarter but I see their reasoning

it was 9pm and dark and they have signs saying no swimming....

Some animalists will claim that the alligator tried to save him and didn't want to harm him...


Alligators don't attack humans unless you're near their nests they are actually rather scared of humans to be honest. The Gator probably thought he was a raccoon or opossum and they tend to kill their prey and hide it until they're hungry to eat it.

Honestly I can care less, I always found it funny here in the south when a black person gets upset and calls me racists when I was working at a hotel because I'm only following procedure and they pull the racist card and slavery card... Well sorry, I wasn't born here in the USA and laugh it off.

People now are so worried about offending others and beat around the bush and instead of taking the truth and fixing things they look to blame others for their failures
