Gorillas Trade as Bush Meat in Congo


For those of you who have an interest in Mountain Gorillas and have been reading my Uganda/Rwanda articles, Steve and I read an extremely disturbing newspaper article recently.

A Mountain Gorilla was recently killed on the Democratic Republic of Congo side for bush meat. With the good old “Catch 22″ situation, the Gorilla had been inured to visits by humans and showed no fear when it was shot. Most primates are then sold in the marketplace to be used as meat.

So very sad and one less Mountain Gorilla in the World…
