|#9 - Why couldn't they tranquilize the gorilla? [+] (15 new replies)||05/31/2016 on Mom's will never let you...||+1|

**geofalke rolled image**hold up now, don't thumb him down. it's a legitimate question as tranq darts have been misrepresented hugely for the past 50 years in every media they've shown up in and not a lot of people actually know how they work.

frankly they should have gotten crowd control and gotten the visitors away from the enclosure so the gorilla wouldn't have felt threatened or stressed by all the screaming and yelling, and then sent in it's keepers to try to coax the gorilla away from the child or get it to hand the child over willingly.
you'd think that the 3rd highest ranking zoo in the US would have tried that before shooting the gorilla, because I'm positive that's what my zoo would have done, and we're #4.

that's like saying the zoo keeper with the rifle also could've just shot someone in the crowd
He was obviously protecting the child, because gorillas have a tendency to care for smaller beings. The only way you could make a gorilla hurt you is if you're trying to, or by just being really stupid.
Trust me, if the gorilla wanted to hurt the child, then he already would've done so.
People encountering a gorilla usually just backs off, which is what the gorilla wants.
But in this case the gorilla noticed the child is much smaller than him and that he must protect him. So he made sure the boy wouldn't leave, for the safety of the child. If the gorilla wanted the child away, it would have walked toward the child, trying to push the child away with it's presence. And if that wouldn't have worked then the gorilla would've proceeded to bash the lil fucker, which is clearly not what the gorilla did in this case, which means that the gorilla was taking care of the idiot child.

It's an animal. It saw the little kid and its protective instincts kicked in... and then all of a sudden the air filled with noise. This little human's shrieking, the other humans are shrieking, and now the gorilla's a little bit upset and nervous because he doesn't know why all this commotion is happening.
Then a dart hits it. A sharp sudden burst of pain that any animal would register as an attack. Now the gorilla's fucking upset. There's a several-minute window in which it would be conscious, pissed off, and in extremely close proximity to the child. Maybe it would have lashed out at the kid, maybe it wouldn't have, but the zookeepers knew that its protective instincts towards a child that was not only not its child, but not even a member of its race, would not be strong enough to guarantee the child's safety.
They had to make a difficult call, and they needed to go with the option that guaranteed the child's safety, so they killed it instantly and painlessly. It's a tragic loss, but only an edgy fuckhead would ever try and say that the child's life was worth less than the gorilla's. It wasn't the kid's fault, it was the mom's, and I hope to god that that cunt gets the shit beaten out of her in a court of law. At the very least she should be separated from that child, since she clearly can't take care of it.

I never suggested trying to shoot the gorilla with a dart.
My point is that the people there really should've been able to take the situation more calmly than they did. Like you said, the gorilla got confused and nervous because everyone was screaming, so ofcourse the gorilla wont let go of the child.
Now if everyone would've just shut their mouth like they should have, then the gorilla would probably look at the child and then let him go after some time.
I'm not saying the child's life is worth less than the gorillas, I'm saying that whoever decided shooting at the gorilla was the best solution is an idiot who deserves to go unemployed for the rest of his life.

This is the most logical perspective on this situation I've seen.

It takes time for it to take effect which means the kid could get hurt or killed due it not liking dart in its skin
