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.”
