(Newser) – Someone bid nearly $100,000 on eBay for a Cheeto that bears a resemblance to gorilla Harambe, shot by handlers at the Cincinnati Zoo after dragging a small boy who had gotten into his enclosure. The seller says he found the cheese snack in a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, reports the AP. Bidding began at $11.99 on Jan. 28 and ended early Tuesday morning with a winning bid of $99,900. The listing showed a picture of the Cheeto side-by-side with a gorilla climbing a tree. Similar listings have since appeared online; the Indianapolis Star notes you can still bid on a far more affordable Cheeto shaped like Harambe's "poop." (Read more Harambe stories.)
