Word is that the turtle was an invasive non-native type, and that's why they sent it to Harambe.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Harambe was not exactly "native" to Ohio either, but how many Ohioans are? :evil:

Harambe self-identified as a Ohioan, that makes him one.

Bless you! My Harambe
Come back!



I know not how to thank you enough, my Harambe
When I am walking over to you
I just wanted to share your enclosure
But you gave me zoo

I know not how to thank you enough, my Harambe
When I am walking over to you
I just want to pick bugs from your fur
But you gave me an infestation

I know not how to thank you enough, my Harambe
When I am walking over to you
I just wanted to find a simple furry ape
But you gave me carpet
REMEMBER!!!
I'll stick my neck out for YOU!!

Texas Biomedical Research Institute officials are making changes to their enclosure after four baboons briefly escaped from the facility on Saturday.

The animal care team determined the baboons rolled a 55-gallon barrel upright near a wall of their open-air enclosure, then climbed it, which allowed them to escape.

From 2016:
FSU display: Harambe costumes are cultural appropriation
  • Florida State University is reminding students in one residence hall to avoid wearing Harambe costumes this Halloween in order to avoid “cultural appropriation.”
  • The display suggests avoiding Harambe costumes, but says "any animal" would be a "great Halloween costume."
  • It also asks students to consider dressing as an "extraterrestrial alien" rather than a "Latinx alien."
