STOP THE CAR...I SMELL AN IGNORANT BITCH

 
Being an animal lover, you just knew this story would burn me up. I was deeply appalled over the weekend to hear of the great gorilla that was shot to it's death to rescue a child.  Witnesses said the child had expressed a desire to get into the enclosure and climbed over a 3-foot barrier, falling 15 feet  into a moat. All this after crawling under two sets of wires and a hedge. How does a kid get that far and the parents don't see it???? Zookeepers took down the 17-year-old ape after he dragged and tossed the child, officials said. 
 
Police may bring criminal charges over the Cincinnati Zoo incident in which the gorilla was killed to rescue the 4-year-old brat, who had fallen into its enclosure. And I say go for it! What I'd like to know is where in hell were the dammed parents????? I hear the parents had multiple children? Well, if you can't handle one, they shouldn't have any. I can't tell you how many times in our store, kids go missing, break things, or wander off, all the while their fricking, sickingly smug , Lily Pulitzer wearing mother is on the cell phone, gossiping about what she is getting, all the while paying no mind to wear their brat is! Then, they get mad at us for not minding the squalling brat. I didn't ask to have the kid, you did, so don't lay your kid at my doorstep. Get off you phone before I shove it so far up your ass, you'll have to break wind to answer the next call!!!!! WHEW. *powders- regains composure*
 
The death of Harambe, the 450-pound gorilla, also prompted the animal rights group Stop Animal Exploitation Now to file a negligence complaint on Tuesday against the zoo with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The group is seeking the maximum penalty of $10,000.The group said in its complaint letter that the child's ability to get past the barrier was proof the zoo was negligent and should be fined for a "clear and fatal violation of the Animal Welfare Act."Mounting outrage over Saturday's killing of the Western lowland silverback, an endangered species mind you, sparked criticism of both the zoo and the child's parents. Online petitions  like Justice for Harambe, if your inclined, drew more than 500,000 signatures demanding "Justice for Harambe."Cleveland Police are taking a second look at possible criminal charges in the incident after initially saying no one was charged. There was no indication of whether the investigation would focus on the zoo or the child's parents.
 
I for one don't think the zoo should be held responsible except for maybe better measures around the exhibits. I could tell they were very heart broke to have to do what they did. From the video I saw, it almost looked as if Harambe was protecting the child, and slowly got anxious from all the yells for help. I'm torn personally on zoos. While for some species near extinction, it is good to help protect them, but I feel as though on the other hand, it's not any different than a circus, where they will live life locked up on display, without the tricks. But apparently as witness this weekend, they aren't safe in a zoo now either. I hope that brat is happy with himself. Another reason brats shouldn't be seen or heard. This is exactly why some species eat their young. I'm off to sign..

  1. Animals were placed on this planet for a purpose,I am not a religous person, perhaps some are are, yes many are considered food, others have existed for many years without incident til we took them out of their space through expansion, plain ole big game kill, or just to gaulk at,either way the parent must be responible for any of their childs actions,what was the value of this endangered animal that had to be killed due to the neglect of the parents at least a million,they cannot replace this creature so easily.If you can't supervise your children properly you should not have them. Humans sometimes make me sick, we ruin everything

  2. I fell upon this post. Considering charges is the most asinine thing I have heard of. They should have shot the ape till it was dead.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I'll try and say this as lady like as one can, but you are an idiot, and thinking like you have is why some of our most stunning and majestic species are nearing extinction. Not caring or thought...everything is just expendable to people like you.

    2. @ Floyd-you're kidding, right? you think it's ok to allow a kid, due to parental inattention, to invade a wild animal's space, and blame the animal if the child is harmed?? ..... seriously?

  3. I love when you get riled up, and for good reason Where were the parents to leave a four year old child unattended???? Even if it was minutes...anything can happen as we have seen here. An animals life was taken because of their lack of parental duties.

  4. Your right Mistress...from the video I saw it looked like the gorilla was exhibiting better parenting skills.

  5. While the enclosure was flawed, what is inside must not escape and what is outside must not enter. But really the parents should have known at all times, in these days, what and where the children are. When in public, my kids were always in carrier , or buggy, or we always held there hand. It's a heart breaking story.

    1. Thank you Agnes. My parents were the same. When I was old enough to walk, my mother put one of the harness with a leash on me. Not that I was a wonderer, but she didn't want to take a chance. Hell, I never minded, and some will tell you, I should still be on one!!!!

  6. The mother had no business to relax her vigilance over her kid, who had ANNOUNCED to her that he wanted to go in there. Innocent gorilla! She is at fault.

  7. I read online where the child said over and over that he wanted to go inside with the gorilla...and the mother did nothing. I would have picked my child up and headed for the car. Her parenting skills are seriously lacking.

    If it is true that she operates a daycare, I hope someone takes a hard look at if the children she keeps are supervised.

  8. I strongly believe that Michelle Gregg needs to be held fully accountable for the death of an endangered species, child endagerment, neglect, and if stupidity was a charge, that too. A 17 year old Silver back was killed because of terrible parenting and neglect. I do not believe this situation could have gone any differently, however could be avoided. Her response also irritates me and shows me how ungrateful of a person she is by thanking God and not the zoo, or the team that saved her child. She doesn't even care about the outcome of her neglect

  9. I say let's put the mother in the exhibit with the two female gorillas.

  12. I love your rants and this series...to the point and always lady like,lol.Way to go on killing this poor creature. I'm ashamed to share a space with such idiocy.

  13. "This is exactly why some species eat their young." LOL,LOL,LOL,LOL That is perfect! I have to remember that line!!!! Parents need to be held accountable for the actions of their children period. I too work in a store and I'm constantly shocked at what I see go on, and what these kids get away with.

  14. That child's parents should be brought up on charges of child neglect and/or endangerment.

    The parents should also pay the zoo for the death of the animal and be exiled from ever entering any zoo anywhere in the world until such time as we rid the world of zoos.

    Floyd's parents should be charged with not giving birth to a child with a heart.

  15. I am signing because I work with captive animals and believe that people need to be held accountable for what amounts to trespassing. This land is NOT ONLY OURS.

  16. When I first saw the video, not hearing the volume yet, I was shocked they shot the gorilla. What a JOKE !!! So easy to pick up a rifle and shoot the poor Gorilla!!! I still think tranquilizers would have worked!!! Makes me sick knowing the parents are gonna walk away from this. Total BullShit !!! Humans win.....yet again.

  17. I wish we could get rid of zoos. Never been a fan. Always made me sad.

    1. I'm with you on that. While I think they help a little, I think specialized, not open to public sanctuary's are much better and not sensationalizing these poor animals.

  18. I understand why the gorilla was put down, but I don't like it. I hope any investigation for liability is on the parents, but we all know the zoo will also be held accountable in some way when this is done.

    Floyd needs to be slapped, too.

  19. This is a horrible tragedy. I agree that the parents were at fault - you can't expect a 4-year child to behave responsibly. I very much doubt the gorilla would have harmed a child that posed no threat, but I suppsose the zoo couldn't take any risks.

  20. How? Tell me HOW a 4-year old kid gets over the wall, under or over a fence on his own? How did he get that far? Were there no other people in the area?
    The parent (mother) claims she was disciplining another child at the time. Well, la-de-fuckin-dah, bitch. More likely you were on your cell phone. It's HER fault this happened. Take some fucking responsibility for a change.
    Poor Harambe was trying to protect the kid. Had the zoo attendants told everyone to calm the fuck down and stop the screaming the keepers would have gotten the kid to safety and Harambe would still be with us.
    But, ultimately, if that parent had been paying attention to her 4-year old Harambe would still be with us.
    I think I need some of your powders to calm me down - or a good gin and tonic!

  21. Did you hear the outcome? They prosecute parents for letting their children walk to parks or play in their own yards, but no charges for letting your kid hop into a zoo exhibit...boggles the mind.

    ReplyDelete
  22. NOT GOOD! The parents should still be fined or something because it was their Neglegiance that got that Gorilla killed in the first place. I say close all the zoos. We shouldn't be viewing them like this anyway.
