Six park rangers shot and killed in mountain gorilla sanctuary



At least six park rangers were shot and killed and several others wounded Sunday in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. While no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, officials are blaming one of the many militia groups that vie for control of natural resources in the endangered gorillas’ habitat. CBS News foreign correspondent Debora Patta joins Anne-Marie Green on CBSN AM to talk about how the great apes and their protectors get caught in the crossfire in the unstable border area.

  1. We are hearing this from europeans who doesn't belong there so who is really illegal there, Do these militia group really exist or is it herbs and others things that people aren't allowing them to leave out, there's always another side to their stories

  2. Sickening. God help us all : The people trying to do good; the people being so destructive; and the rest of us doing nothing. Save us all from ourselves. May all beings be truly happy, so that the earth and all the natural world thrives.

  3. It should be legal to hunt poachers… IF I ever win the lotto…I'd look into hiring people to do just that…whether it's "legal" or not, it's ethically the right decision.

  4. I wonder how much of the illegal income of these militia groups goes to payoffs to military and government? How could the Government of the Republic of Congo stand for this and fail to support these rangers and this jewel of a park, without corruption? This has been going on for a very long time.

  5. It's sad that these people who are doing this to the park and killing it's rangers have such a short sided thinking about instant money. In the long run when they don't have any more resources to bring in any income for themselves and their families and all the wildlife has gone into extinction they too will go extinct. They have to put up trail cameras and flush these murderers out of hiding!
