Cincinnati Zoo Officials Shot Dead 'Harambe' A 400 Pound Gorilla On Saturday After A Four-year-old Boy Fell In The Enclosure
Cincinnati Zoo officials shot dead 'Harambe' a 400 pound gorilla on Saturday after a four-year-old boy fell In the enclosure. Witnesses alleged that they overheard the boy ask his parents to play in the gorilla's pen before crawling close and falling. This led to the silverback being shot dead. Many are angry that the Zoo officials didn't use tranquilizer, instead, they shot the gorilla that was in it's habitat, not bothering anyone before the incident. The tranquilizer suggestion is great, but a shot of that could have made the gorilla more aggressive, leading to more harm being done. With a child's life at risks, the Zoo officials had to react quickly and accordingly. It is an all around bad situation. We are glad that little man is okay.
It is being reported that criminal charges could be brought against the boy's parents. Below is the video and outrage from social media. The video also include a similar situation that happened years ago.
Thane Maynard, the Cincinnati Zoo Director said in a statement that, "the boy was not under attack, but described it as 'an extremely strong animal in an agitated situation." Maynard also supported the response team's decision to kill Harambe. An onlooker A mother and onlooker at the Zoo, Brittany Nicely said she tried to stop the boy. 'I tried to prevent it, I tried to grab him and I just couldn’t get to him fast enough,' Brittany Nicely told WHIO. Nicely also said that "the gorilla was acting protectively towards the boy and did not exhibit any threatening behavior." Watch the video below.
Michelle Gregg, the mother of the boy (right) who fell, not acknowledging the Gorilla in her statement below, made matters worse. She deleted her Facebook after this post. See more images of the outrage below.

The Weekend. Although Illangelo did not produce the single 'Take Care' Jamie XX did, Keys new song sounds very familiar.
A few of the lyrics from the song, “Who wants to love somebody like me? We all have our issues, our challenges. We are all kind of messed up and that’s all right. In fact, that’s what helps us understand each other. To me, that is what’s so beautiful.”

Although Keys new song have the Sade and Drake 'Take Care' vibe, the actual song is very catchy and has a positive smooth vibe to it. Keys is relaxed, she is not over-singing the song. Something to lay back to, with the summer breezy flowing, top or windows down and ride out to. Amazing job Alicia Keys.
Afeni Shakur Davis has died at the age of 69. She was an activist and the mother of slain rap legend Tupac Shakur. According to Marin County Sheriffs, "deputies and firefighters responded to Shakur's home in Sausalito, Calif, Monday night after she suffered a possible heart attack, the sheriff's office said Tuesday morning. She was taken to a local hospital and died just before 10:30 p.m. Sheriff's Lt. Doug Pittman of Marin County said, "At this point there is nothing to indicate to us that there was any foul play, nothing suspicious about this other than this being sadly a natural event that has occurred,"
Pittman also said that, "Shakur was in the company of a friend when she began to feel sick. She was experiencing some type of physical discomfort. Attempts were made to try to remedy those problems at home, but when they got more severe, it was at that time the family friend called 911 and asked for medical help. Paramedics arrived around 9:30 p.m. and immediately began to provide CPR. She was rushed to Marin General Hospital, where she was treated for about an hour before she died."
The coroner's division is now handling the investigation of her death. Pittman continued: "Officials will speak to family members about Shakur's recent health history and research her medical records to determine whether an autopsy is needed, he said. This is a tragic loss to this community. Shakur, born Alice Faye Williams, changed her name, when she moved to New York City and joined the Black Panther. During her work with the group, she charged with conspiracy to bomb landmarks around the city and was arrested in 1969. A month before son Tupac was born, Afeni represented herself in court in May 1971 and was acquitted.
Afani was married for 12 years, but filed for divorce this year. Her son song 'Dear Mama' detailing struggles of their life became an instant hit. His sudden death definitely was a nightmare for her, but she managed to take over his estate and continued on his legacy. Watch the video below. We are praying for the family.
