  • Cincinnati Zoo Gorilla Exhibit Reopens

    On Tuesday, The Cincinnati Zoo plans to reopen its gorilla exhibit with a higher, reinforced barrier. The new barrier was installed after a young boy got into the exhibit and was dragged by a 400-pound gorilla. To save the boy, zoo officials then shot and killed the gorilla, an endangered Silverback named Harambe. The reopening of the exhibit comes a day after Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said he would not bring charges against the boy's mother. The boy's mother was attending to another child when her 3-year-old "just scampered off." Some animal rights activists vilified the zoo for shooting the animal, while others blamed the mother for not watching her child more closely.

Three surveillance cameras have also been installed to monitor the site.
