When The Internet Finds Out What Gorilla Mom Does For A Living – More Blame Is Cast!
By now, we’re sure you’ve heard of the Harambe gorilla incident in which a child was left unattended, which led to an innocent gorilla being shot out of fear that it might harm the child.
As new information about the family of the boy comes to light, more blame is cast upon the parents of the boy, who are being accused of being bad parents for not having had their eye on their child at all times.

Michelle Gregg, the boy’s mother, works as a daycare administrator. When the internet found this out, they went ballistic. They dragged her name across some mud and then hung it out to dry.
But is she really to blame?
She explains in a post that has since been deleted:
“What started off as a wonderful day turned into a scary one,” she wrote.
“God protected my child until the authorities were able to get to him.”
“Accidents happen but I am thankful that the right people were in the right place today.”
The public took her ‘accidents happen’ reasoning as proof that she’s incapable of handling her own children.
A bystander at the zoo who saw the whole thing attests:
“This was an accident! ! A terrible accident, but just that!”
“The child quickly crawled through!”
“None of us actually thought he’d go over the nearly 15-foot drop, but he was crawling so fast through the bushes before myself or husband could grab him, he went over!
“This mother was not negligent and the zoo did an awesome job handling the situation!” – Deirdre Lykins
The Cincinnati Zoo Director Thane Maynard did say that children can sometimes outpace their parents in this press conference.
