Let's do a little math. The zoo keeper has 19 years of experience. The zoo keeper raised the gorilla from birth. The gorilla is 29 years old. How close to Gargantua did the zoo keeper have to travel?

Now, to be fair... If you ARE the gorilla, that's a great day.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something about a "safety door".

"The keeper was seriously injured at the Madrid Zoo Aquarium in Spain after being attacked by the 31-stone gorilla."

Well there's your problem right there.... an aquarium is not a natural or secure environment for a gorilla. Gorillas tend to thrive in a jungle environment, properly secured with doors and bars.

I'd like to see pics of the doors.  I'm guessing they were left unsecured. Ape used door knob.

Geeze, he was just trying to help a buddy out.  What's the big deal?

Every time I walk along the suspension bridge on the Pangani Nature Walk at WDW/AK I do the mental calc of "If he was motivated and ran and jumped with all his might.... I think he might make it."

Fun fact:
All the restroom doors at AK open in rather than out so you can barricade yourself in the the restroom should he make the jump.

You have to wonder about what environment the gorilla was in.  Unless he thought of the zookeeper as a competing gorilla, that doesn't seem like a gorilla's behavior in the wild.  All bets are off if the zookeeper was assumed to be competing for mates/turf/bananas.

If I was an animal in a zoo I would take every opportunity to injur as many people as I could reach. It would be my only goal.

Put it down, i'm afraid.

As a kid, I had sort of seen gorillas at the zoo, behind glass and usually obscured by foliage, never a real good close up unobstructed view. When I got a chance to finally see a gorilla close up and almost face to face, it was absolutely crazy - he didn't seem real, he was so human-like, it looked like a person in a gorilla suit just sitting right sipping on an Angry Orchard right there in Applebees.

Sources say Jeremy Clarkson was unharmed in the incident...

Ah, see there is the problem.  Someone made the mistake of calling a greater ape the M-word.
