Ndakasi’s Dead Mother, Rubiga

Yesterday I shared with you news about the recently orphaned baby gorilla, Ndakasi. In today’s post I will show you a graphic photo of his dead mother. Her name is Rubiga, and she was shot in the back of the head. A autopsy confirmed this, removing two bullets from the back of her head.

I share Paulin’s sentiments. These photos are horrible.

“But it is the reality of what the Gorillas and the Rangers have been through since Friday. It is important that the world sees. I do not want to offend or upset, but it is what is happening.”

  1. So gente a spirit taken in the wake of violence.
    Man’s enmity knows no bounds, as scoundrels
    walk free, but they did not abscond with the little one.

    A tear from heaven falls and splashes the brow
    of the one left behind. Forever will you be remembered Rubiga, for all you embraced that is dear.

  2. So gentle a spirit taken in the wake of unseen violence; man’s enmity knows no bounds, as scoundrels with guns walk free, but they did not abscond with the little one.

    A tear from heaven falls and splashes the sun-kissed brow of the one left behind. Forever will you be remembered Rubiga, for all you embraced that is dear.
