Beautiful Unseen Pictures Show Harambe the Gorilla’s Human Side and Why the World Fell in Love with…
Danna Colman

There is no human side to Harambe: he is an animal. Does his life have inherent value: yes as do all animals. But you’re choice to use language like this is wrong because it attempts to raise the value of his life and contest with that of an actual human being. Harambe was not killed for sport or in cold blood. His life was sacrificed for a child and everyone recognises it as thus. What are you trying to prove by making him more human? Are you aware that given the way discussion has turned on this issue, your post in a small way actually diminishes this child’s value? Why not focus such a post on animals who are actually being killed unjustly or maltreated.
