arranged in a systematic way
On May 28, 2016, a 3 year old boy fell into a gorillas enclosure. In response to the situation, the zoo was forced to shoot and kill the silverback gorilla. His name was Harambe. The shooting scent a wave of anger throughout the country saying the situation was handled poorly, even though the zoo keeper says they made the right decision. It was a sad and dark day for humans and animals across the world, and our thoughts and prayers are with Harambe's family.
