Just another example of the victims of the war that takes place in The Congo. This time, its an innocent baby mountain gorilla who finds itself orphaned after its mother was shot.
Only 700 mountain gorillas survive in the wild, more than half of them in Virunga.
It is unclear who had killed the adult female or why.
She had been killed “execution-style” in the back of the head and left at the scene rather than taken away to be eaten, said Emmanuel de Merode of conservation group Wildlife Direct. (Daily Mail)
