Harambe the Gorilla

Everyone by now has heard about Harambe the Gorilla incident. As reported a young boy jumped into the gorilla's cage by crossing the public barrier. His mother was present but was distracted by 3 other children. Videos show Harambe dragging the child through the moat. Some say he was distressed from all the shouting from other guests. Some conclude he was protecting the child.

Unfortunately the world has lost a rare and extinct gorilla. Harambe was a silver lowland gorilla. Lowland gorillas are said to stanerect at  5–6 feet (1.5–1.8 m) tall and weigh 300–600 pounds.

Western lowland gorillas are endangered and they live in heavy rain forests, and it is difficult for scientists to accurately estimate how many survive in Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Angola, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
