In spite of the recent unfortunate incident at the Cincinnati Zoo where a 4-year old child fell into a gorilla enclosure, it’s important to note that this is not the first time this has happened.

Check out the behavior of the gorillas in the videos below (compliments of Youtube) and compare them to Harambe and the Cincinnati incident and share your opinions in the poll following.
