Beautiful Unseen Pictures Show Harambe the Gorilla’s Human Side and Why the World Fell in Love with this ‘Gentle Giant’

The following photos were taken by amateur photographer Robert Streithorst, who resides five miles from the Cincinnati, Ohio zoo where the silverback was shot and killed by zoo staff on Saturday, May 28, 2016, after Isaiah Dickerson, a three-year-old boy fell twelve feet into Harambe’s enclosure.

These never before seen pictures of the gorilla, Harambe, reveal his human side and show just why the world fell in love with the mammal called a ‘gentle giant.’
