Kids, don’t do this when you go to the zoo.

For one, it’s highly disrespectful. But most importantly, taunting a wild animal will never end well.

🚫BOYCOTT ZOOS 🚫 This is so disrespectful! The man who filmed this video said this gorilla at the Texas Zoo was sitting there because he wanted to sit in the sun, but the kids kept taunting him so he had to leave but not before showing them he wasn't enjoying his confinement and being teased. People say they take their kids to zoos to teach them to respect animals. Ya I'm not buying that over used excuse. These kids were calling him ugly and acting like spoiled inconsiderate unsupervised brats. Gorillas are amazing, family-oriented gentle giants who do not belong in an Animal Prison. Parents – please teach your kids to be KIND and to have COMPASSION and please don't support school trips to zoos. This is animal cruelty. Thank you and Credit to @a_lallie for your heartfelt message. 🙏🐒🌱 Zoos are prison to animals. #animal #instaanimal #zoo #animalrights #animalsofinstagram #vegan #viral #video #instavideo #love #instadaily #texaszoo #gorilla #wildlife #harambe #ripharambe #humanity #compassion #captivity #animalvideo #amazing #hope #kindness #like #instadaily #instalike #friends ™@donnamaria1961

A video posted by PiktureMaker (@dp4k.m) on

“You ugly!” a couple schoolkids screamed as a thick sheet of glass separated them and a wild gorilla.

Without hesitation, the gorilla slammed its large hands onto the glass, causing the kids to scream louder than they probably ever had before.
