A shocking video, recorded inside a Chinese zoo, displays the animal punching the girl whose mom is giving food to the monkey. But seems like food wasn’t enough as the animal wanted to show the world life was not a cup of cake. The footage shows the girl and her mom giving food to the animal, who looks totally calm, but in a few seconds it smashes the kid, knocking her down: It is thought that the toddler ‘mocked’ the animal by offering and afterwards retreating a piece of food in front of the animal.
It’s not shocking, it’s nature and they’re wild animals. ”Leave them alone. Hope the little’un is ok though,” one commenter wrote. Yet another said: That will teach the girl a good lesson! Don’t interfere with wild animals! Hope the monkey is okay after the trauma!
So what will they do now, sue the zoo? I guess they might? No one knows the damages caused by the punch. Do you remember the moment a three-year-old went inside a gorilla inclosure at Cincinnati zoo in 2016 and they were forced to kill Harambe in the end? A whole nation was left wondering ”Was that the right thing to do ?”
The toddler was grabbed by the 450-pound gorilla, who procrastinated the kid across the inclosure’s ditch. The zoo officials had to open fire on the gorilla so that they could free the child. The matter divided the public, with some saying the zoo had the right to do what they had to in order to protect the child.
Others claimed it was the parent’s fault for disregarding the young boy. Animal activists went further by filing a complaint against the zoo, forcing the local prosecutor to re-examine the case to define if the county should charge the zoo or the toddler’s parents. Zoos are meant to be educative and amusing, but you know they also shelter wild animals. On many occasions, these animals are predators who will eventually attack if they are hungry or feel menaced. In 2012, a two-year-old boy fell 10 feet from a wooden railing into an exhibition that sheltered wild African dogs at the Pittsburg Zoo. Many of the dogs fatally mutilated the kid.
Three young men were attacked by a Siberian tiger at the San Francisco Zoo in 2007, with one fatally hurt. Even though the zoo pretended that the men teased the tiger into jumping out of her inclosure, evidence revealed that the walls of the tiger’s inclosure were, in fact, four feet lower than recommended by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
Same evidence showed zoo employees had forewarned zoo officials about the wall height, but the zoo had disregarded their warnings. The zoo sealed the case for $900,000.
