Rwandan soldiers spread out across Virunga National Park yesterday to protect endangered mountain gorillas after the Hutu militia apparently grilled two male gorillas and ate their meat on Friday. Killing apes for their meat is relatively common in Congo and other parts of Central Africa, but not in Rwanda and Uganda. Only 355 members of the gorilla subspecies live in the wild. Liz Williamson of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International rued the loss of the two males because at this point “any single individual is invaluable genetically.”
