From your Chicago Tribune:If only there were common sense way that this European gorilla crisis could have been brought to an end sooner -- like by arming children with .22 caliber rifles:
A 400-pound gorilla escaped from his enclosure and ran amok in a Rotterdam zoo Friday, biting one woman, dragging her around, and causing panic among dozens of visitors before he was finally subdued, officials and a witness said.
The Diergaarde Blijdorp zoo was evacuated and the 11-year-old gorilla, named Bokito, was eventually contained in a restaurant within the park, police spokeswoman Yvette de Rave said.
Four people were injured, including the woman who was bitten, zoo director Ton Dorrestijn said.

Thanks Jim and Judy!
Once again, our liberal firearms laws have made American citizens much safer than their European counterparts.
