Gun free zones are safe according to our Stupid Leaders. Notice how it was only 49 people murdered and not 100 due to the gun free zone? It's working.
KB, just leave it on and keep everyone guessing.

It’s unfortunate but you are responsible for the animals you keep

Listen to him whine and attacking the potential audience makes me not want to see it, cause frankly I didn’t like to trailer or the cast but prolly would of watched the movie. Now will not happen. I have a really mean stubborn streak.

Get shanked today or a chance to get cancer in 10-20 years… That logic baffles me… Should be living in the present not what could or couldn’t happen.

It is kind of funny in all these instances at the zoo the tranqs are aways out of reach but the guns are close. tranqs should be easy access in case of an emergency. If you want to try to save the idiot and the animal.
Tranquilizers were deemed too dangerous for this situation because the initial reaction of the gorilla is unpredictable and could have resulted in injury or death of the child. (Tranquilizers take time to take effect.) The zoo made the right choice, no question about it.
It’s kind of funny in all these instances where people post their opinion without reading the article. ““We stand by our decision,” he (Director Thane Maynard) said Monday, reiterating that using a tranquilizer on the 420-pound gorilla could have further threatened the boy because it wouldn’t have taken effect immediately.”
The tranquilizers were within reach. They weren’t, however, the best option.
Were the parents negligent? A bit, but as a parent of many children, some of whom were quite willful at times, watching some means not watching others and the only solutions are to tie them together (not P.C.) or never take them anywhere. Was the zoo negligent? Possibly. Regardless, they had to deal with the situation as it unfolded and they decided that the life of a 3-year-old human was more important than the life of a gorilla. Good call.
Sure use a tranquilizer dart on a 420 pound animal. This is not Hollywood. Unless you are giving what would be considered a lethal dose it will not have an immediate effect. The animal would be even more agitated and could potentially crush that child's skull.
It's kind of funny that they let people who can't/don't read the articles comment when the information is always out of rich but the keyboard is close. Information is easy to access in case of an emergency if you want to try to save the comment.
As a veterinarian that worked in the Toledo zoo with gorillas, the tranquilizer would have been a mistake of epic proportion. There's a lag phase of minutes for the tranquilizer to work. Some animals go through an involuntary excitement stage while it's kicking in. If you think a gorilla has the potential to do some serious damage while in complete control of it's faculties, you should see what they are capable of doing in the stages of anesthesia/tranquilizing. I can guarantee you that the zoo keepers, employees etc. are saddened by the fact that this had to be done, but when it's all over the main thing to remember is this was a gorilla, and he was a little boy. Don't be PETA. A human life Trumps any animals life and when decisions have to be made, the human should always be the top priority.

Katie Couric doesn’t like them to use hypothetical, but she gets to use it, what a hypocrite.
