may 28, 2016 - A Child Fell Into A Gorilla Enclosure
Jonathan S. Tobin states that this event, a 3 year old falling into a gorilla enclosure resulting in the animal being shot, is a sure sign that humans value animal life over human life. This is because of the tremendous backlash the zoo and parents have received for letting a child fall in and the death of a silverback gorilla to occur. Tobin works for Commentary, a monthly magazine covering politics, international affairs, Judaism, and social, cultural, and literary issues. Tobin is very passionate in bringing to life the devaluing humans bring into their own lives.
