Williamson EA (2005) "Snare aware" mountain gorillas. Gorilla Gazette, 18 (1), p. 8. http://www.gorillagazette.com/past.htm
First paragraph: People often ask whether mountain gorillas are still hunted, and if poaching remains a problem in the Volcanoes National Park. Until the ghastly resurgence of attempts to capture gorilla infants in 2002, there had been no known deliberate killing of gorillas in Rwanda for 20 years. Poachers set traps for antelopes, but these traps are indiscriminate towards their victims. If a gorilla is caught, his strength can enable him to break free, but during the struggle wire may cut into a hand or foot, and if these cuts become infected the animal may die. To protect gorillas and other animals, anti-poaching teams patrol the forests daily, to find and destroy snares, whilst a veterinary team will intervene to anaesthetize snared gorillas, and treat the wounds.
