Gorilla Massacre

In July of 2007, six gorillas were murdered, execution-style, in the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Brent Stirton, the photojournalist who shot the intensely disturbing photographs of the slain gorillas, returned to the Congo with writer Mark Jenkins to determine the why this atrocity happened. The story complete with brutal militias, environmental disasters, corruption, smuggling, and the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide is covered in the July issue of National Geographic. and a documentary on the subject will air July 1st.
