Cincinatti Zoo gorilla not at fault. The parent of the boy is.

This whole Gorilla shooting thing is going way out of control. I find it hard to blame the zoo for not keeping an eye on one of its guest’s children.  Although I don’t have a child, I know what it takes to prevent your toddler from falling into an enclosed animal area at the zoo….
