I Dont Like Your Kids: Childfree and Proud by Brian CraigIn the spring of 2016, a three-year-old climbed into the gorilla pen at Cincinnati Zoo. When he was seized by a large silverback, fearful staff called in armed gamekeepers. Unfortunately they missed and shot the gorilla. The Gorillas name was Harambe: nobody remembers the boys.
