Like a Boss (2018) • Did this great ape piece for one of Croeni Foundation‘s initiative.
Harambe, a critically endangered western lowland silverback gorilla was shot and killed on 28 May 2016 at Cincinnati Zoo, after a he dragged a 4-year-old boy out of a moat. The boy had wandered away from his mother and fell into a gorilla enclosure. It was a highly controversial incident (or accident in this case) – Should primates be held in captivity? Was a Harambe trying to protect the child? What would have been the “right” decision to make in that accident, man vs. great ape? Harambe died a day after his 17th birthday.
