Zoo's Gorilla Barrier Didn't Meet Standards When Harambe Died
A federal report said the barrier was noncompliant when a 3-year-old child slipped through it and fell into the gorilla exhibit.By Katherine Biek | November 18, 2016
Federal inspectors say the barrier for the gorilla exhibit that housed Harambe was not in compliance with standards.
A response team at the Cincinnati Zoo shot and killed Harambe after a 3-year-old boy slipped through the barrier and fell into the exhibit in May.
A U.S. Department of Agriculture inspection concluded the zoo followed the proper procedures during the incident.
