This is probably missing the point of the article but it is still kind of brave in a Jackass kind of way to capture a freaking ape! Sadly, I have to assume that these hunters are fighting the cowardly way with guns and distance. I say, you want to capture an ape knock yourself out. But it has to just be you and the ape in some good ole hand to hand combat. See how your jiu jitsu skills work when your face is getting ripped off.
Almost 3,000 great apes are killed or captured in the wild each year because of rampant illegal trade, according to a new UN report released Monday that voiced fears for their survival.
More than 22,000 great apes are estimated to have been lost to the illicit trade between 2005 and 2011, according to the study by the UN Environment Program, which oversees the Great Apes Survival Partnership (Grasp).
“This trade is thriving and extremely dangerous to the long term survival of great apes,” said Grasp coordinator Doug Cress, describing the illegal trade as “sophisticated, ingenious, well financed, well armed”.
