Yeah, I agree. What a bummer.
It's a shame the great apes are endangered. They're such incredible creatures. Personally I have a fondness for the gorilla. They're so fascinating
and peaceful. If not for humans taking their land and poaching they might have stood a chance. Since their population has dwindled so much, though, an
outbreak of ebola might be all it takes to finish them off.
Maybe it's strange, but my first reaction is to feel sympathy for the apes, and not for the people who will also suffer and die from an outbreak.
But, that's how it is.
What a sad, sad day ...
