HARAMBE'S placid demeanor
(CNN)Harambe was beautiful, gentle and a bit of a tease. That's according to one former caretaker. But the animal's placid demeanor makes it easy to forget that gorillas are huge, powerful
A 400-pound gorilla was shot dead by an emergency response team at the Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday after he grabbed a 3-year-old boy who had fallen into zoo’s Gorilla World enclosure.
HARAMBE A 17 YEAR OLD SILVERBACK SHOT
Harambe, a 17-year-old silverback gorilla who celebrated his 17th birthday on May 27, dragged the young boy through a moat inside the enclosure. Zoo officials said in a press release
The boy had climbed over a barrier and then fell into the moat. The boy’s mother has been identified as Michelle Gregg. She said in a Facebook post on Sunday that “accidents happen”
Goodbye HARAMBE Though I never knew you at all You had the grace to hold yourself While those around you crawled They crawled out of the woodwork And they whispered into your brain
LIKE A CANDLE IN THE WIND
And it seems to me you lived your life Like a candle in the wind Never knowing who to cling to When the rain set in And I would liked to have known you But I was just a kid
LONLINESS WAS TOUGH ENOUGH
Loneliness was tough The toughest role you ever played Hollywood created a superstar And pain was the price you paid Even when you died
Through no,fault of his HARAMBE was jailed, some say he was assassinated and murdered. It seems to me it was for expedience. Other zookeeper's said they would have done the same.
Our shake and bake culture
Expedience seems a poor epitat for a majestic 17 YEAR OLD gorilla. It would be a salve on my wounds if his mother had more to say than "ACCIDENTS happen"
Though I never met you
I weep for you, I cry for us, our species. I am an elephant, (My animal identity ) we were comparedres. We walked alone, but we were family oriented..
YOU WERE MAJESTIC, BEAUTIFUL
All GOD'S CHILDREN, you were untainted, unspoiled, you were imprisoned, whether assisinated or murdered that's for the beholder, my life, our lives are a little less good, a little less innate.,
