YOUNG GORILLAS DISABLE SNARE
According to National Geographic, a group of young gorillas at the Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda stunned researchers in July when they were spotted disabling traps set by poachers. The speed at which they disassembled the trap has researchers believing that these clever creatures have performed the task before. They were able to do so by breaking the tree that supported the trap and undoing the ropes of the noose. Although young gorillas are the most at risk when it comes to snare-related injuries or deaths, this intelligent group managed to do the unthinkable and saved themselves from death.
