The mother at the Cincinnati Zoo kept her cool and acted wisely in the face of certain danger. Zookeepers also worked swiftly, facing the Hobson’s choice of killing a gorilla to save a toddler.
The Cincinnati Zoo killed this 450-pound gorilla named Harambe last week after a three-year-old boy accidentally fell into the gorilla's enclosure and was dragged through the water. Screen capture courtesy of NBC News
