A little girl’s decision to pound her chest at a Silverback gorilla while watching him through a glass window will probably haunt her the rest of her life.

In a YouTube clip (shown below) that was posted on Reddit and is quickly spreading across the Internet, a couple of massive Silverback gorillas are shown standing around in their area of the zoo when the little girl starts to pound her chest. Another young child can be heard trying to tell her she shouldn’t bang on her chest before the gorilla goes nuts.

In a split second, the gorilla turns from calm to angry as he quickly charges towards the glass, full speed ahead. The glass shatters, and the terrified family immediately runs away, scared out of their minds. It’s safe to say that in that moment, the young girl was probably regretting banging on her chest.

“The Silverback only took a couple steps to go from ‘quiet saunter’ to ‘ruthless killing machine,’” one Reddit commenter noted.

Although it has yet to be confirmed, reports say that the video is believed to have been taken at Omaha, Nebraska’s Henry Doorly Zoo.

Check out the insane reaction of the Silverback gorilla in the clip below.
