Zoos are a place for the average person to see animals they might not ever get the chance to observe in the wild. Zoos also have the purpose of conserving certain species, trying to make sure they don't die out to extinction.. and in other cases they can be a sanctuary against poaching and hunters.
Levan Merritt 1986
As encounters with great apes go, Harambe wasn't the first incident of a child falling into a gorilla enclosure. It happened at the Durrell Wildlife Park in Jersey, Channel Islands in the UK, when Five year old Levan Merrit somehow fell into the zoo's gorilla enclosure, falling far enough that he lost consciousness when he hit the ground.
Beijing Zoo 2009
Pandas. They're endangered, and they're absolutely adorable. That cuteness draws in many crazy panda-fans for Gugu, a panda at the Beijing Zoo. People come from all over to see him, and more than a few have snuck into his enclosure.
Pittsburgh zoo, 2012
For all of these stories, a surprising number don't end with someone being killed, considering they're usually just feet from dangerous and unpredictable predators. But fatalities unfortunately do still happen sometimes, as was the case for two year old Maddox Derkosh.
Detroit Zoo, 1990
The Detroit zoo is a popular destination for many who wish to admire the wildlife of the world, and apparently also for those who like going where they shouldn’t be. This time though, the story has a happy ending, and the man had a good reason for jumping in. 33-year-old Rick Swope was enjoying his day at the Detroit zoo until he came across the chimpanzee exhibit.
Berlin Zoo, 2009
The case of the Berlin zoo polar bear attack incident in 2009 is both mysterious and sketchy, and not much is known right down to the name of the woman involved in this incident on our list.
Cleveland Metro parks Zoo, 2015
Once again, another case of a two-year-old boy being held on top of the protective railing and falling into an enclosure with several dangerous animals.
Santiago Metropolitan zoo
Suicide is never the answer. No matter what you might think, someone's going to be devastated by it, your community will be impacted, your loved ones will be at a loss without you and you'll be sorely missed by many.
Little Rock Zoo, 2015
A young child went to the Little Rock zoo with his father and grandfather for some fun, and multi generational bonding time.
Brookfield Zoo, 1996
Here we have a more feel-good story. A young child fell into the gorilla exhibit, and was set upon by a terrifying silverback female gorilla named Binti Jua.
Toronto Zoo, 2016
A visitor to the Toronto Zoo must have really like her hat, because she jumped down from the observation deck and right next to a flimsy fence that had a tiger behind it, in order to retrieve it. Amidst people yelling at her, calling her a "moron", the woman leaped down and grabbed the hat while the tiger pounced on the fence separating them, desperately trying to get at her.
I think the mother murdered the toddler to sue the Zoo. Believe me some people are terrible, and to place the baby on top of the railing with just a nest to keep garbage out. If she’s truly innocent then she’s beyond stupid
I'm still pissed about harambe because I saw him as a small child, he was a beautiful gorilla, too bad that kids shitty parents were too busy on their phones to care about their kids and thanks to those fuck nuggets there is no more harambe, they should have shot his shitty parents instead of the gorilla, not like they gave a shit about their son anyways. He wasn't hurting him he was saving him from the water and pulling his pants up for him, big deal
So u mean to tell me she watched her son get bit up by them dogs to death and she didn't jump over that fence to possibly save her son since it was her fault? I would never do that to my future kid but if i did it would be hard for me to do it but to save my kid i will give my life up
Stop killing the animals! Punish the people, it’s them not following the rules, and for kids the parents should be punished. Importantly you should let them back on there homes, instead of making them more in dangerd than they already are! IMPORTANTLY DO NOT MESS WITH PANDA’S NOT MY FAVORITE BEARS THEY NEED PRIVACY >:(
Can't believe the family sued the zoo for the death of their child. It's not the animals fault, It's the parents. It is stupid to hold a child on the safety wall or bars. You hold the child in your arms to get a better look. The parents should have been arrested for child endangerment. There are innocent animals being killed over the stupidity of people. There are some shown here, that saves lives. It's the people who are irresponsible and not going by the rules.
I came across a section of a group of commentors who should go to hell, bc they are hoping the child that fell into harambe's exhibit gets bullied, when it wasn't his fault. The kid was fucking 3 at the time, like srsly. Also if they wouldve tranqed harambe it possibly wouldve made the situation worse. Yall should burn for that. Smfdh
Number 8, 5 and 5:14 Those retarded white fat bitches should be thrown into a lions cage as food, they do it on purpose to get a fat (like them) paycheck.
Number 4 They should've shot the beast who jumped in the cage, not the poor animals.
And that's exactly why there should be a Retarded Whites specific area in every Zoo or just forbid these inbred mentally-challengeds to get close the animals.
Yes I have one time me and my cousin were outside playing in the woods and is Diamondback came up and bit my cousin we have to go to the hospital because it was only a diamondback and Diamondbacks aren't poisonous
Yall can feel sorry for Harambe all yall want but you know good and damn well if something that big grabbed your 2 year old boy and was dragging him through the zoo trying to find a safe place to eat him then you would've shot him to and if you say you wouldn't do it then your a fucking idiot
how can people be so stupid dropping your child into a wild animal inclosure getting your kid killed and wanting to sue t he zoo they shood have inprisoned the dipshit as soon as she mentioned law suit it was her freakin fault your kids depend on you to protect them not die because your a stupid idiot tard dumbass with no freakin brains at all
THEY SHOULD'VE HAVE LEFT THE FUCKING STUPID IDIOT OF A PERSON DIE THE POOR LIONS IM DED RIGHT NOW THAT FUCKING DUMBASS BECAUSE OF HIM WANTING TO DIE POOR LIONS DIED BECAUSE OF HIS STUPID DECISION I KNOW I SOUND SO MEAN BECAUSE WELL HE WAS PROBABLY GOING THROUGH SOMETHING TO MAKE HIM WANT TO DIE BUT I CARE SOOOOOO MUCH ABOUT ANIMALS!!! AND THE POOR LIONS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS ITS HOW THEY ARE BORN THEY WHERE BORN TO ATTACK AND BE MEAT EATERS!!! IM JUST SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SAD AND MAD AT THE SAME TIME!!!! UGHHHHHHHH
any parents who don't keep their children away from the enclosure should be sue to hell. They should be facing jail time, do 500 hours of community work, and no zoo entrance for a good 10years. Discipline time!
When Macmillan talked about the wind of change, he was referring to the desire of African nations for their independence. But he might just as easily have been talking about education in England, where many concerns - about the extent of underprivilege, the need for a more child-centred style of education in primary schools, the unfairness of the selective tripartite system of secondary schools, and wider access to higher education - were now reaching a climax.
Tory education policy.
In his book The Making of Tory Education Policy in Post-War Britain 1950-1986 , Christopher Knight argues that in the period between 1950 and 1974 the Conservative Party failed to fashion an educational policy in line with Conservative philosophy (Knight 1990:3).
However, the beginnings of a Tory education policy can be seen, Knight suggests, in One Nation - A Tory Approach to Social Problems , published by the Conservative Political Centre in 1950. It was written by nine members of what became known as the One Nation group of Tory MPs, including Edward Heath, lain Macleod, Angus Maude and Enoch Powell, who were committed to preserving the church schools and the private sector, to defending the tripartite system, and to opposing what they saw as the enforced uniformity of comprehensive education.
In his contribution to One Nation , Maude wrote: The modern insistence on humanising teaching methods . must not be made an excuse for abandoning the traditional disciplines of learning . We deplore the present tendency to drag down the brighter children to the level of the dull ones (quoted in Knight 1990:12-13). It was perhaps unsurprising that the Tories should have spent little effort in developing a coherent education policy in the early 1950s because, when they regained power in 1951, the overwhelming need was for more school places to cope with the rapidly rising birth rate. Oversize classes (forty or more pupils) and inadequate buildings were the dominant issues for politicians, civil servants and parents alike . A wider vision of schooling was not yet developed
