Wallpaper Description:
afrol News, 27 July,2oo7 - The execution of four mountain gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has raised fears among conservationists about the safety of wild animals, describing the act as “senseless and tragic.“

The bodies of the four females and a male critically endangered mountain gorillas were discovered by rangers in the Virunga National Park Institute for the Conservation of Nature (ICCN), the DRC’s wildlife and protected areas authority.

All four mountain gorillas were shot, but it is unclear who killed them and why. But the fact that their bodies have not been carried away gives conservationists the impression that the executions were not the work of poachers who might have sold the bodies.

Over 700 mountain gorillas survive in the wild today, and none exist in captivity. Wildlife authorities expect this number to grow rather than being reduced, describing the indiscriminate killing of the four gorillas as a “huge loss.“
