Hmm, let’s see. Day after day, groups of gorillas tramp through my living room and I wouldn’t get upset after a while and bop one on the head with the remote?

It is not good to stand so close to a full grown silverback male gorilla. Look at the first picture and you will see that they provoked him by coming dangerously close to him.

What this incident reminds me of:
The gorilla: Radical Islam
The tourists: American Liberals
Their comment: “Nobody told us they could be dangerous!”

Why are people so shocked to find out that wild animals are...wild animals?

Always have very big gun handy when getting up close and personal with animals, especially big animals.

And don't look him in the eye unless you want to start a fight.

Sounds like an L.A. gang thug.

One likely explanation is that the tourist – an American – got between the male gorilla and the true object of its attentions, a young female

White-faced with shock, the hapless tourist finally makes it back to his companions

We honkies normally look "white-faced."

More seriously, this gorilla could have easily killed the tourist and the guides who came to his rescue, if he wanted to. Knowing that gorillas are normally not aggressive, the tour group ignored the gorilla's threat display and got too close, so the ape escalated the threat communication.

The gorilla was just making a citizens arrest of a trespasser.

“melt into the ground if they charge.”

Maybe he wasn’t too good at melting into the ground.

So he made eye contact, big deal. You didn’t need to drag him off and scare him ****less.

So the important thing to remember when you're invited into a silverback gorilla's backyard is just who's the boss. Oh, yes. And don't look him in the eye unless you want to start a fight.

Yeah, I have to post signs on my yard and everything.
