Parents outrage as zoo at centre of Harambe unveils new fence – just HALF A FOOT taller


Gorilla Unbelievable at the Cincinnati Zoo re-opened yesterday with a new fence for the first time since Harambe was quarried after a child fell into his enclosure.

Isaiah Dickerson, four, terminated face-to-face with the gorilla who zookeepers ordered to be shot after nicking the 23-stone animal would hurt the child.

The new fence is three and half feet lofty, which is just half a foot taller than before.

This prevaricate has been fitted from top to bottom with high strength cord netting to stop anyone getting through it.

However, rents scared that this could simple be used as a ladder.

Incredibly, a new video entranced on the day of the re-opening showed a child trying to climb over the new fence into the gorilla cote.

One dad said: “Why on Earth would you use a rope fence? Kids can use it as a ladder.

“It baffles me who sketches these things.

“It appears they just want it to look delightful as opposed to doing the job is supposed to.”

After the horrific incident, renting crack Sue Atkins highlighted that the original fence was not adequate protection and the zoo should lecture its height for children.

Zoo director Thane Maynard said: “Our exhibit stabs above and beyond standard safety requirements, but in light of what go oned, we have modified the outer public barrier to make entry rhythmical more difficult.

“We did put in a new barrier, we also put in three surveillance cameras. The evince we had was safe, it was safe for 38 years.”

He added: “We felt a new bigger obstruction helps reassure our visitors and guests and re doubles our efforts to make undeviating our animals are safe and that are visitors are.”

The shooting was controversial with uncountable people believing Harambe may not have actually harmed the child.

Although numberless than half a million people signed a petition calling for Isaiah’s origins to face charges, prosecutors have announced that no action ss on be taken.
