The Cincinnati Zoo is set to reopen its gorilla exhibit with new physical barriers at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
This comes in response to the 3-year-old boy who gained access to the enclosure late last month, resulting in the killing of Harambe, a 17-year-old western lowland gorilla.
The new barriers at Gorilla World are being raised 6 inches to 3.5 feet.
It has wood beams at the top and on the bottom with knotted rope netting, zoo officials say.
The previous, 3-foot barrier fence passed multiple safety inspections by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, according to zoo officials.
The child climbed the old fence, crawled through bushes and dropped into a moat May 28.
