The parents of the boy who fell into a gorilla enclosure — resulting in the death of 17-year-old silverback Harambe — have been issued with death threats.
Staff at the zoo in Cincinatti, Ohio, shot the endangered primate fearing four-year-old boy Isaiah's life was at risk.
Now couple Michelle Gregg, 32, and Deonne Dickerson, 37, have been blasted by those angry at the endangered animal's tragic death.
"I'm pro animals. Take better care of your 3yr old F*****G KID you lazy son of a b***h. Shoot the parents first then the gorilla. Rant over," wrote on furious tweeter.
Another said: "Feel for the gorilla. Didn't deserve to get shot. Shoot the s****y mum instead."
The couple, who reportedly have four children together, are now facing neglect charges over the incident in Cincinnati, Ohio.
