CORSICANA (CBSDFW.COM) – A statue of a gorilla, and prime attraction for kids at the Community Park playground in Corsicana was removed by the city.

A spokesperson for the city said some community members found the gorilla offensive – racially insensitive — in some form, and requested its removal from the park.

The Atlantic wrote:Something mysterious is killing captive gorillas

[…]
When Less switched the Cleveland gorillas to a new diet—one that cuts out biscuits and simple starches and replaces them with leafy greens, alfalfa, and branches from willow and other trees—she realized gorillas needed to eat about four times as much by weight as they had previously been fed. Not only did gorillas on the “Cleveland diet” get a huge increase in fiber, they spent nearly as much time eating as they would in the wild. Almost immediately, the Cleveland gorillas stopped regurgitating their food. “We thought the diet change might have an impact on regurgitation and re-ingestion,” Less says. “But to see it eliminated completely was shocking.”
The new diet measurably decreases body fat and lowers cholesterol. But perhaps more importantly, it seems to affect the bacteria living in gorillas’ stomachs and intestines. And those microbes may be the key difference between gorillas with heart disease and those without it.

Word is that the turtle was an invasive non-native type, and that's why they sent it to Harambe.

Bless you! My Harambe
Come back!



I know not how to thank you enough, my Harambe
When I am walking over to you
I just wanted to share your enclosure
But you gave me zoo

I know not how to thank you enough, my Harambe
When I am walking over to you
I just want to pick bugs from your fur
But you gave me an infestation

I know not how to thank you enough, my Harambe
When I am walking over to you
I just wanted to find a simple furry ape
But you gave me carpet
REMEMBER!!!

Texas Biomedical Research Institute officials are making changes to their enclosure after four baboons briefly escaped from the facility on Saturday.

The animal care team determined the baboons rolled a 55-gallon barrel upright near a wall of their open-air enclosure, then climbed it, which allowed them to escape.

From 2016:
FSU display: Harambe costumes are cultural appropriation
  • Florida State University is reminding students in one residence hall to avoid wearing Harambe costumes this Halloween in order to avoid “cultural appropriation.”
  • The display suggests avoiding Harambe costumes, but says "any animal" would be a "great Halloween costume."
  • It also asks students to consider dressing as an "extraterrestrial alien" rather than a "Latinx alien."

Crazy golf 'Peeping Kong' statue unnerves Devon residents

A 7ft (2.1m) tall fibreglass gorilla has been causing a bit of a stir after residents dubbed the glaring beast "Peeping Kong".

Gary the gorilla lives in a crazy golf course in Dawlish, but some of the residents facing the course have been going ape over his stare, saying the statue looked into their homes.
