Rebels Eat Gorilla! Oh Yeah, They Also Kill Women and Children ...

Rebels in eastern Congo have killed and eaten two silverback mountain gorillas, conservationists said Wednesday, warning they fear more of the endangered animals may have been slaughtered in the lawless region.

Only about 700 mountain gorillas remain in the world, 380 of them spread across a range of volcanic mountains straddling the borders of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda in Central Africa.

One, that's hilarious and I would love to eat a gorilla, and two, meanwhile, the conservationists could care less that only about 700 Africans are still alive in the Congo, since they're all being slaughtered by each other. But that's the way environmentalists think: animals are more important than humans.
