Photo: Emergency Gorilla-Protection Force Deployed in Congo



The remains of Macibiri, a female gorilla missing since an attack on her family group last month, were found last week by Virunga park rangers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.


In July four other endangered mountain gorillas from Macibiri's group were found dead, shot execution-style by killers still at large.


Macibiri's infant, Ntaribi, is still missing and presumed dead.
