    I’m glad there are so many perfect parents out there to pass judgment.

      Tell me about it. I am tired of hearing about this story. People need to move on with their lives.

    Honestly, there should be no way for a kid to fall or join animals in their cage in any zoo.If the kid could get in by accident, it’s a safety issue and the zoo should be held responsible. Poor Gorilla!

    Unless your in the situation nobody should have an opinion.

    It’s easier to say what you would do but a different story when your in the situation.

    What you say and being in the situation are usually different.

    So let this go move on with your own lives. The courts said they are not pressing charges against the parents.

    It’s easier to judge others without being knowledgable of all the details and facts prior of the incident.

    Also, it’s ignorant to compare your life to other parents. You don’t know what another parent is going through.

    So don’t speak unless you know all facts of a story before running your mouth.

    Don’t be information less.

    The media does not always provide all the information.

      Seriously Kristen Northrup. Did you really look up the correct person?Lots of people have the same first/last name.

      Also, you don’t know if she has a special needs child or if any of the other children with her were special needs children. Their are a million of things that might not of been advertised, but never the less a judge did not feel to put charges on either parent.

      Instead of looking down on someone pray for them and the children and for the best for all family members.

      Be the better person. No person has the right to look down on another person or family.

    People losing their minds over this gorilla…still, how many days later? Thousands of people dying daily from gang violence, abortions, kids being left in hot cars, etc. Its sad for the zoo/gorilla but unless it’s your situation, I wouldn’t worry about it.
