"An early bush-meat picture with a very representative story behind it. That morning we were pulled out of a bush taxi at a road junction to record a statement with the police.
Our taxi went on with the rest of the passengers, and we had to wait for the next one the next day.
"We then met a hunter while walking along the road. He told us that he had killed a female gorilla that morning. The police chief of Moloundoua town farther southhad sent him the rifle requesting him to 'get some gorilla meat.' He shot the female gorilla that morning and sent the gun and the carcass back on the daily bush-taxi run. He was allowed to keep the head and one arm for his efforts.
"He proved this story by taking us to his kitchen, where I took this picture after he lifted the basket that had covered the head."
