People were shocked at the killing of the Cincinnati gorilla, even though zoo officials determined it was the only choice.

The fear of the gorilla harming the child was the catalyst for the zoo's special animal team to take the gorilla's life, instead of risking injury to the child.

Onlookers who watched the videos of the gorilla killing, a horrendous situation, were shocked and upset, due to many reasons.

One of the reasons that most people were upset, is because the gorilla did not seem to be violent or hostile to the child, instead it looked as though the child was not in deliberate harms way from the gorilla.
