Man's Mean Streak

A beautiful and rare silverback gorilla who had just celebrated his seventeenth birthday in captivity was shot and killed by zookeepers after a three-year-old boy whose distracted mother had too many other kids to care for fell into the gorilla's own territory at the Cincinnati Zoo. While a video of the incident shows the beloved 450-pound Harambe appearing to protect the child from harm at one point, still the decision was made to take him down because the boy's life mattered more.

Once again we are reminded that the only reason Man is at the top of the evolutionary list is because he wrote the list. Obviously, the kid's mother should be somewhere near the bottom.
