Police are investigating possible criminal charges over an incident at a Cincinnati zoo in which a gorilla was killed in order to rescue a four-year-old boy who had fallen into its enclosure.

.

Key points:

Negligence complaint filed with the US Department of Agriculture against the zoo

Investigation into possible criminal charges launched

More than 460,000 sign online petition to demanding “Justice for Harambe”

Zoo had history of safety failings

.

An animal rights activist group said it had filed a federal negligence complaint with the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) against the zoo, seeking the maximum penalty of $US10,000 ($13,837) followingSaturday’s killing of the 204-kilogram ape named Harambe.

.

“The failure of the Cincinnati Zoo to adequately construct this enclosure to protect both the public and the animal held prisoner there is a clear and fatal violation of the Animal Welfare Act,” Stop Animal Exploitation Now said in its complaint letter to the USDA.

.

Mounting outrage over the shooting death of the western lowland silverback, which is an endangered species, sparked more than 460,000 signatures on online petitions at Change.org, some demanding “Justice for Harambe” and urging police to hold the child’s parents accountable.

.

Zoo officials were not immediately available for comment on either the negligence complaint or the police investigation but said on Monday the exhibit was safe and exceeded required protocols.

.

Authorities are taking a second look at the possibility of criminal charges in the incident after police initially said no-one was charged.

.

“The incident at the Cincinnati Zoo involving the young child who fell into the gorilla enclosure is under investigation by the Cincinnati Police Department,” Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters said.

.

“Once their investigation is concluded, they will confer with our office on possible criminal charges.”

.

Witnesses said the child had expressed a desire to get into the enclosure and he climbed over a 1-metre barrier, falling 4.5 metres into a moat.

.

The shooting of Harambe has attracted outrage among animal rights supporters.

An Australian animal behaviour expert said the silverback gorilla would have perceived the screaming adults in the crowd above its enclosure, rather than the little boy who fell in, as the real threat.
