4-Year-Old Crawled Into Gorilla's Cage, What Happened Next Broke The Internet 

A western lowland gorilla declared critically endangered by the World Wildlife Fund was shot dead in the Cincinnati Zoo after a four-year-old boy crawled and fell into the gorilla's enclosure. 17-year-old Harambe, who was transferred to Cincinnati from Gladys Porter Zoo, in Brownsville, Texas was a 400-pound gorilla. He had turned 17 just a day before his killing, which is being called a 'murder' by many people on the social media.

Some people had accused the child's parents of being irresponsible towards their child and pay no attention when the child crawled and fell into the gorilla's moat.
