"Gorilla Killings" by Brent Stirton

Amazing photos taken in July '07, when locals and rangers worked together to evacuate the bodies of four Mountain Gorillas in the Virunga National Park, Eastern Congo. One of the gorillas had been shot; all were killed under mysterious circumstances. See more of Stirton's "Gorilla Killings" series here. Via we make money not art.

there is something profoundly chilling about those pictures. more so than if they had been any other beast. it's like we are murdering our ancestors.
