Cincinnati zoo incident

After a four-year-old boy fell into the enclosure of an endangered gorilla named Harambe in a Cincinnati zoo, officials made the decision to shoot and kill the animal to protect the child. The tragic incident has sparked a huge debate over animal rights. Did the zoo make the right call? Some have called for the boy’s parents and the zoo to be punished, but is anyone truly to blame for this incident? In such circumstances, how are we to weigh the value of a human life against that of an animal? And is the concept of a zoo inhumane? Join us for a discussion with Ms. Julia Gallucci, Primatologist at PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, in Los Angeles; in Boston, Jeff Corwin, Producer and Host of the Ocean Mysteries, aired on ABC, and author of many books on conservation; and in London, Jillian Miller, Director of The Gorilla Organization.
