Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

That is great !

And as said also, sad, 790 Mountain Guerillas left, and idiot humans still trying to kill them....

We need a plague, bad.....

Darn computer ate my post....never happened before so its a 1st for me;

Its sad that the gorillas have to learn to dismantle snares to survive; Its a skill also shared by chimps;

"But a few chimps living in the rainforests of Guinea have learnt to recognise these snare traps laid by human hunters, researchers have found.
More astonishing, the chimps actively seek out and intentionally deactivate the traps, setting them off without being harmed."

Good for the Gorillas.  With so few left they need to set traps for the poachers so they can become an endangered species.  I think anyone caught poaching an endangered species should get life in prison with no possiblity of parole because they are such a danger to the planet.
