Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard has spoken on why the team wants to win the Super Bowl. According to Sam, the team was to win the Super Bowl to honor Harambe who was killed in 2016 at the Cincinnati Zoo. I wish the team the very best as they prepare to win the Super Bowl to honor Harambe. Total Pro Sports has got details of the late Harambe.
Harambe was a western lowland gorilla who was housed at the Cincinnati Zoo from 2014-16. In a controversial move, Harambe would be killed after he grabbed a three-year-old boy who had crawled into his gorilla enclosure. A worker noticed that Harambe had the young child, so he was shot dead.
Justice for HARAMBE!!!
On May 28, 2016, a three-year-old boy climbed into a gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden where he was grabbed and dragged by Harambe, a 17-year-old western lowland gorilla. Fearing for the boy’s life, a zoo worker shot and killed Harambe. The incident was recorded on video and received broad international coverage and commentary, including controversy over the choice to use lethal force. A number of primatologists and conservationists wrote later that the zoo had no other choice under the circumstances, and that it highlighted the danger of zoo animals near humans and the need for better standards of care.
The incident was recorded in a dramatic video by an anonymous bystander and uploaded to YouTube, where it went viral, sparking global publicity and controversy. Some observers said that it was unclear whether Harambe was likely to harm the child. Others called for the boy’s parents or the zoo to be held accountable for the gorilla’s death. Director Thane Maynard stated, “The child was being dragged around … His head was banging on concrete. This was not a gentle thing. The child was at risk.”
Police investigated possible criminal charges against the parents, while the parents defended the zoo’s actions. The boy’s mother also became the target of harassment on the Internet and social media. On June 6, 2016, Ohio prosecutor Joe Deters said that the mother would not face any charges of wrongdoing. The zoo was investigated by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), which sets the standards for zoos, and the USDA.
Harambe became the subject of internet memes, songs, a video game, a statue, and other tributes and recognitions.
