Once the child was in the hands of a powerful, 400-pound gorilla, authorities were right to kill Harambe to protect the child. As unfortunate as the loss is, a child’s life trumps an animal’s, even when an animal is just being an animal. Of course, when there’s a death, especially one that seems senseless and unnecessary, people are ready to express their outrage.
Many were quick to point the finger of fault — some aimed at the zoo and others at the child’s parents. However, as time passed, a different, much more troubling trend began. Social justice warriors became adamant that no one is to blame since it was an accident and we should quit judging.
