Two Year-Old Ape: Found Rotting in Congo

Congolese park rangers have arrested 2 gang members suspected of Gorilla trafficking – advertising each individual for a sale of £8,000. However, they were too late to save a young ape found rotting in the forest, a female – probably the baby of one of those killed – thought to have been taken from the local National Park, a supposed conservational area.

150 park rangers have been killed by poachers and rebel armed forces whilst trying to protect the area’s endangered species! Earlier this month the rebels raided the ranger station, seizing their weapons and supplies and forcing them and their families to flee.
