Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Ohio zoo kills gorilla to protect small child in enclosure
 
   CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati Zoo's director says zoo security officers killed a 17-year-old gorilla that had grabbed a small boy who fell into the gorilla exhibit moat.
 
   Director Thane Maynard says the 3-year-old boy is expected to recover after being picked up and dragged by the gorilla Saturday for about 10 minutes. He was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
 
   Police had initially reported that the gorilla was tranquilized, but Maynard said the decision was made to shoot to kill to save the boy's life. He calls the decision a difficult one, but the right one.
 
   A hospital spokesman says he has no information to release. Authorities haven't released the child's name.
 
   The incident was reported around 4 p.m. The around the gorilla exhibit was closed off Saturday afternoon.
