So pleased they caught the poachers WS but it is worrying that the baby is from an endangered group and that it has a cough and runny nose, they are so susceptible to our germs, its scary and the poacher obviously didn't care or know as he sneezed on it.
Another worry is what has happened to his mum? if he has been poached I fear for his mum, is she still alive.
They have done well to get these poachers and I hope they get what they deserve but it is also so upsetting that so many have lost their lives protecting the gorillas.
They are such a magnificent animal and one I feel so strongly about, I wished people would leave them alone.

I knew it was hard for the anti poaching rangers to patrol, because they were few and the borders long and by the time they get to one area the poachers are in a completely different area. 11 deaths to the anti poaching rangers this year!!! I salute you!

The baby gorilla is lucky to have been recovered, I dread to think were it be now. I dont think any punishment the poachers will receive would be enough for me, nuff said.

Sad news that yet another baby gorilla has been taken, good news it is safe now, but when will the poaching stop?

No punishment for poaching can be enough of a deterrent for me Evil or Very Mad

Glad they managed to save this little lad. I Agree SM, dread to think what would have happened to him if they hadn't Crying or Very sad

Sad to think that 140 Rangers have been killed in the last 10 years protecting 5 parks of the Democratic Republic of Congo and rarely recieved a salary Crying or Very sad

Approximately only 790 Mountain Gorilla's are left in the world, sad sad facts Sad
