It shouldn't have happened. The Gorilla would have treated the boy like its own child. The Gorilla would have sensed the child's harmlessness.

From what I hear the father wasn't there so he should not be blamed. She probably was on her phone texting.
An eyewitness told the news that she heard the boy and his mother arguing. He told her that he was "going in". She said, "No you're not." and then the witness said he jumped in. I wonder how far he was from her that she couldn't stop him.
That's interesting to know. If my daughter said something like that when she was that age, she would have done just that and I would have hand my hand on her wrist to make sure she didn't go in
The mother isn't being charged because she was tending to, I believe the news said, three other children. Four small children are too many for one person to tend at a zoo. She should have had another adult with her to share the duties.
I can agree that can be a handful. I had a handful with two. I followed a story where a toddler fell and almost drowned in a fountain, the mother took her eyes off her for just a second
