The following piece left me deeply puzzled . . .

KINSHASA, Congo, Oct. 7 -- Rebels have seized an area in eastern Congo that serves as a wildlife habitat for endangered mountain gorillas, threatening one of the last known populations of the animals, conservationists said Sunday.

Shelling and heavy gunfire could be heard from the headquarters of the Virunga National Park, and rangers were forced to flee over the weekend, according to the international conservation group WildlifeDirect.

"This conflict has no place in the park, least of all in the habitat of these animals," said Norbert Mushenzi, director of the southern section of the park for the Congolese Institute for the Conservation of Nature.

The area containing the mountain gorillas was also attacked in January, when two silverbacks were killed. Four months ago, the body of a female gorilla was found. Conservationists say it was killed execution-style (!!! NB).

What does it mean it was killed execution-style? They are trying to say that the gorilla was blindfolded and shot while standing on its knees?


I decided to include this gorilla in my 'Shalom Haver' (Farewell) series. There the gorilla will be in a good company of Tsedek, Farfur and Mullah Dadullah.

Leave them in peace

WASHINGTON – A new strain of the virus that causes AIDS has been discovered in a woman from the African nation of Cameroon. It differs from the three known strains of human immunodeficiency virus and appears to be closely related to a form of simian virus recently discovered in wild gorillas, researchers report in Monday's edition of the journal Nature Medicine.


Leave the poor gorillas in peace, you sick bustards...

(I can't believe I am daring to post this)

:D :D
