Photo: Mountain Gorillas Eaten by Congolese Rebels



The remains, including the head, feet, and skin, of a mountain gorilla called Karema were found recently dumped in human excrement in a pit latrine.

Karema is the second mountain gorilla killed and eaten by rebels in the Democratic Republic of the Congo this month, raising fears that a mass slaughter of the critically endangered animals is underway.
