Picture of the Day: Rescued Baby Gorilla

October 27, 2011


There are roughly 900 mountain Gorillas remaining on earth and baby Shamavu (shown above) is one of them. Baby Shumavu was recued from the hands of poachers by a team from Virunga National Park in Congo led by Christian Shumavu. The team busted a poaching racket and were able to rescue this baby Gorilla, He was then named after the man who rescued him. As you can see from picture, Shumavu looks confused and scared. The rescue team found him stuffed inside a small backpack. He is about one and half years old and it is not sure if his mother survived from the hands of poachers. The baby was so terrfied from the whole experience that he would not leave the arms of his recuer or let any doctor treat him. It took a while until he earned the confdence of other humans.
