美国辛辛那提动物园一名男孩跌入围栏,园方射杀猩猩救男孩_双语新闻

Zoo officials have shot dead a gorilla after a four-year-old boy fell into its enclosure in the US city of Cincinnati.

在美国辛辛那提市动物园一名4岁小男孩跌入猩猩活动区,为救男孩园方当即将一只猩猩射杀。

The boy climbed though a barrier and fell into a moat, where he was grabbed and dragged by the gorilla.

当时这名男孩爬过栅栏跌入了壕沟,然后被一只猩猩抓住拖走。

The zoo said it took action to shoot the 400lb (180kg) gorilla as the situation was "life-threatening". The boy is expected to recover.

动物园工作人员称当时情况危急,男孩有生命危险,他们立即采取行动射杀了这只400磅(180公斤)的大猩猩。小男孩预计将很快恢复。

Last week two lions were shot dead in a zoo in Chile after a man entered their pen in an apparent suicide attempt.

上周在智利一名男子闯入一家动物园的狮子活动区试图自杀,导致两只狮子被射杀。

’Devastated’

“悲痛”

Cincinnati zoo has temporarily shut its gorilla exhibit following the incident on Saturday.

事故发生后,辛辛那提动物园暂时关闭了他们周六的大猩猩展览。

The boy had fallen about 10ft into the moat. Video shows the boy being dragged through the shallow moat. The gorilla then stops, with the child below him and looking up at him.

这名小男孩从10英尺高的地方摔入壕沟。视频显示猩猩将男孩拖至壕沟较浅处。然后停了下来,男孩抬头害怕的看着它。

But the boy was reportedly dragged by the 17-year-old male western lowland gorilla named Harambe for about 10 minutes.

据称男孩被这只17岁的雄性西部低地大猩猩Harambe拖拽了将近10分钟。

The child was taken to a local hospital and although no information about his condition has been released it is believed he will recover.

之后男孩被送至当地一所医院,尽管没有关于其身体状况的信息发布,但应该没有生命危险。

Zoo director Thane Maynard said: "[The officials] made a tough choice and they made the right choice because they saved that little boy’s life. It could have been very bad."

动物园主管Thane Maynard说:“我们的工作人员做了非常艰难但又非常正确的选择,因为他们救了男孩的生命。不然可能非常糟糕。”

He said a tranquilliser would not have had a quick enough effect.

他说镇静剂可能没办法立即发挥效果。

Mr Maynard said that although the boy was not under attack, he "certainly was at risk".

Maynard先生称尽管男孩没有受到攻击,但当时他的情况确实非常危险,

He added: "We are all devastated that this tragic accident resulted in the death of a critically-endangered gorilla. This is a huge loss for the zoo family and the gorilla population worldwide."

他补充道:“对于这起悲惨事故我们非常悲痛,它导致一只濒临灭绝的大猩猩的死亡。这对于动物园家庭和世界猩猩种群来说都是一个巨大的损失。“

Two female gorillas in the enclosure did not approach the child and were unharmed.

围栏里的两只母猩猩并没有靠近男孩,因此没有受到伤害。

Harambe was born in captivity in Texas and moved to Cincinnati zoo in 2014, where it was hoped he could be part of a breeding programme. Cincinnati zoo has had the largest number of western lowland gorilla births in the US.

Harambe出生于德克萨斯州的一个圈养区,2014年作为繁殖项目的一部分被移至辛辛那提动物园。辛辛那提动物园是美国西部低地大猩猩出生数量最多的动物园。
