Shocking, sad, educational and beautiful, all at once. This video "documents the significance of the recent gorilla massacres in the Democratic Republic of Congo." The killings were apparently motivated by a political battle between industrialists and conservationists.
The pictures below show park rangers and people of the area sadly and ceremoniously removing the body of a great silverback from the jungle.
