Gorilla Orphaned After Mom Shot "Execution Style"

A baby mountain gorilla has been left orphaned and fighting for its life after its mother was shot and killed in eastern Congo. Rangers discovered the two-month-old gorilla clinging to the breast of its slain mother in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Rebel militias in the area have been accused of slaughtering and eating the critically endangered apes.
