Just days after a poacher's snare had killed one of their own, two young mountain gorrilas worked together Tuesday to find and destroy traps in their Rwanda forest home.

Im happy that they have learnt how to destroy the traps that have been left to kill them but also saddened to think that this still goes on..especially in todays day and age..sad  :(

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

I think we should start trianing gorillas to use AK 47's.... Then leave a few of these AK 47 wielding gorillas around the jungle to kill poachers. We could put them around tigers and everything. lol <--- It's the future I tell ya.


That is really intresting though, thanks for psoting this. :tu:

Enjoyment is had by me when animals outsmart humans. Hopefully this doesn't lead to more sophisticated trapping methods.

Same here, Rubix cube is a b****. Mastered it, memorised the moves.

Picked it up again after a few months and I had forgoten the moves, very embarrassing for me after I told a friend I could solve it in a few minutes then gave up after 45mins...

YAAAAAAAAAAY!!! GO GORILLAS GO!! :clap: I agree with other posters. If they could just start learning to set up traps and ambushes for the poachers we'd have a level playing field. Poachers of any sort are just douchenozzles. :td:
