Sad how politics affects your life even if you are completely innocent of politics and the power grabs inherent in tribal warfare. I hope that the value of the gorilla's right to live and to remain in a viable habitat is recognized by whomsoever shall hold the power now and in the decades to come. Animals once again suffer mans slings and arrows.
