Michelle Gregg is the name that is going around the Internet after the gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo was shot dead in order to save her son.

It all started with a viral video where the 4-year-old son of Gregg managed to get past the barricades and into the exhibit. The young boy was seen dragged around by the 400-pound gorilla Harambe before getting neutralized by the zookeepers.

Since the news made headlines, Michelle Gregg’s parenting has been put into question and sparked online debate on who should take responsibility for the death of the critically endangered animal. This is especially after she had posted a statement on Facebook on Sunday.

The post had received a lot of backlash and has since taken down; they instead opted to release a statement through a public relations firm.

“We are so thankful to the Lord that our child is safe,” relayed a statement from Gail Myers Public Relations. “He is home and doing just fine. We extend our heartfelt thanks for the quick action by the Cincinnati Zoo staff. We know that this was a very difficult decision for them, and that they are grieving the loss of their gorilla. We hope that you will respect our privacy at this time.”

Despite asking for privacy, those who felt very wronged by the death of Harambe managed to find out a lot about the woman who couldn’t keep an eye on her child.

Michelle Gregg is not only a mother to four children, but she is reportedly an Administrator at a Cincinnati Daycare called Little Blossoms Academy, as reported by Heavy. With the number of children under her care at work, the public is wondering how she was able to lose her son inside a gorilla exhibit.

The Little Blossoms Academy Facebook Page had reportedly received numerous hate comments and the administrators of the page have removed comments or images relating to the Cincinnati Zoo incident.

Since the 17-year-old Western lowland Silverback gorilla was put down there have been various petitions and Facebook groups calling for Gregg and her family to be held responsible for the death of Harambe.

One petition on Change.org titled “Justice for Harambe” is asking for 500,000 signatures to hold the parents responsible. There was even another petition calling for Child Protective Services to investigate Michelle Gregg. The petition has almost reached its goal of 50,000 signatures.

There were various witnesses saying that the boy could’ve been stopped prior to falling into the exhibit.

Witness Kim O’ Connor told New York Daily News, “The little boy himself had already been talking about wanting to… get in the water. The mother’s like ‘No, you’re not, you’re not.”

The Cincinnati Zoo is currently mourning the loss to the zoo and the gorilla population worldwide. It wasn’t an easy decision for the zookepers to make such a “difficult call” and neutralize an animal they’ve raised since infancy.
