It's good news that this Baby was saved, you only have to look at the eyes in the photos to see the stress there, but it's devastating that so much killing, and stealing of these creatures is still going on after all the efforts to save the Mountain Gorillas over the years

Many thanks for the pictures then info Chui. I'm glad they have managed to save this little one but we all know there are more out there like him who won't be so fortunate No

I've watched many programmes about humans saving and hand rearing this beautiful animals and it's very, very hard.

You're right WS you can see the stress in the little ones eyes and stress is as big a killer as the poachers are Crying or Very sad Sad

So pleased he has been saved but what an awful experience for him and his family. it is just so sad they are taken away from their families and those families more than likely loosing their lives. These are such special animals and one I have a real soft spot for. It must be such a hard job for rangers to deal with the trafficing of Gorillas and a dangerous job as well I imagine. My respect goes to the rangers and my heart goes out to the Gorillas.
