Goma, Congo, April 26, 2009--After a three-month stakeout, agents from Virunga National Park recovered the eastern lowland gorilla infant shown above from inside a piece of luggage.

Orphaned, dehydrated, and with a puncture wound to the leg, the confused baby was found stuffed into the bottom of an animal trafficker's suitcase. The young ape will be cared for by doctors in the Virunga gorilla sanctuary.
