Harambe floating up to heaven after he was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo three years ago after dragging around a child that fell into the enclosure.

On May 28, 2016, a three-year-old child fell into the gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo and was dragged around by Harambe, a Western Lowland Gorilla. Harame was eventually shot and killed by a zoo worker because they feared for the child's life. Harambe's death spawned all sorts of memes including the famous "dicks out for Harambe" memes. Today is the three year anniversary of his death and people are still mourning as much as ever. The full video of what happened is at the bottom of this page. 

Three years ago today we lost a legend, RIP Harambe!
