UPDATE: $100,000 for a Cheeto?

UPDATE: As of 10:30AM Tuesday morning, the listing for the auction has been removed by eBay. 

BURBANK, California (WTVN) -- A Cheeto that looks like a Cincinnati Zoo gorilla shot to death last year has reportedly been sold online for nearly $100,000.

The eBay auction ended Tuesday morning and, after receiving 132 bids, the snack that the seller claimed resembles Harambe was purchased for $99,900.

Zoo handlers killed the Western Lowland gorilla last May after it dragged a 4-year old boy who had fallen into his enclosure.

It wasn't long before the gorilla garnered a following on the Internet and became a trending topic.
