just make sure there isn't an alpha male, all well fed, not in heat, their young offspring isn't around, and there is a dart gun on hand.

Even if that gorilla was stressed, I do not believe it would ever hurt a child, because they have the ability to understand it is a child, and not a full grown human. Especially if it's a female.

If you actually knew about gorillas, and didn't fall to stupid misconceptions, you would know that this is not bad parenting, but awesome parenting.

I would dare say, that gorillas are more emotionally intelligent and more caring and loving than any human on earth.

Watch these:
Koko the gorilla and her fallen kitten.
Michael the gorilla recalls the moment of his mothers death.

Those gorillas have been taught to communicate with humans through basic sign language. The video of Michael telling the story of his mother's death, is something I wish everybody could see.

Letting this kid play with the gorillas is no worse than letting your kids play with dogs. No difference.

Except for that whole "domestication" thing.

Personally, I wouldn't let a kid play with gorillas unless they grew up together. But there is probably a big difference between gorillas maintained in a low stress environment with a lot of physical and mental stimulation and gorillas kept in a tight cage by an irresponsible private owner.

Lazthehun, a gorilla is way more powerful than any dog. Also, there are animals that can be domesticated, such as dogs, and their are animals that can be trained, but never domesticated. Which means there is a lot more inherent risk when playing with a gorilla, than with a dog.

This was 20 years ago when people weren't freaking out about every little thing!

To be fair Aspinall (who was an 'eccentric') financed the zoo from his gambling operations and was convinced that keepers and animals needed a close bond. As a result there were a lot of incidents but he always maintained that it was a high-risk job and that staff accepted that. No more high-risk than, say, trawlerman.

But the gorillas were not life-threatening here. Unlike the tigers, the elephants and one mean bastard of a chimp.

just because the human race is now..inhuman, savage and without any limits, it doesn't mean beasts are such beasts. i would be scared to let my child play with gorillas while watching, but i would be a lot more scared to leave it with another human being i dont know

I think it's awesome. That kid didn't grow up to be a wuss, like most people these days. Letting this kid play with the gorillas is no worse than letting your kids play with dogs. No difference. The only difference is your prejudice: dogs=good, not dogs=bad.

This was 20 years ago when health and safety were pretty much unknown.

it's nice to see an organization who places a kid in danger just to bring in some money.

That zoo has had an extraordinary number of fatalities among keepers and visitors. But none by gorillas.
