Before she herself was murdered while living there and protecting these gorillas.
Maybe it wasn't Jane Goodall..
It couldn't be I don't think unless it was before she converted..
She probably never had to convert.
She was probably always human and not a monster.
Wantonly killing for sport and fame and monitory gain..
Trying to prove their manhood and masculinity..
Impressing the ladies with his stimulated insanity..
Some need to covert from killer to protector if they are able or willing to do so..
Many to blind to see..
What we have been taught and learned.
Jane is famous for protecting.
Early 1960's I believe.
Are you a killer or a protector..
Readers Digest I think I'm reading a few years after this encounter occurred.
Wealthy Great White Hunters from European Kingdoms and their African Hunting Safari's..
They cut off heads or whole bodies and then have them stuffed and then hang them on their walls..
I had been following Diane Fossey for sometime already.
National Geographic and Life and Post and Time and Readers Digest and others..
Fascinating and I was fascinated and still am..
I can't imagine her hearing this story and how she being so horrified to have to hear such a thing.
She visiting Jane or whoever it was on the other side of the mountain.
The other woman a relative newcomer to the mountain at that time and the wife go a Wealthy English Aristocrat or Nobleman or something like that I think.
They are drinking coffee or tea and visiting and conversing when Jane tells how they came to be in Africa and her husbands safari and hunt for a live gorilla baby to take back to England as a trophy and novelty also valued at something like a million dollars because of their rarity.
Sometime after that hunt I think they came to live here for a time.
Her husband and his hired african guides on the hunt knowing where they could find a troop with a recent baby that was about the required two years of age they were seeking.
Capturing a less than two year old had proven in the past to be futile as the babies would always die from separation aniexety from their parents and siblings..
At two years old they were hopeful of a survival.
As she told the story to Diane she said there were several hunters with rifles as well as her husband for protection and to make what kills would be necessary as well as the packers and trackers and haulers of goods and guides in their safari group of Africans as well as he.
They knew that the gorillas were not going to give up their baby.
The plan was to kill the mother and the baby would cling to her and they could then throw a net over the baby and extract the baby from the dead mother forcefully.
Fully expecting to kill the father at the same exact moment and did as they knew he would fight them and kill protecting his mate and baby.
These Africans had hunted gorillas for decades and were well aware of what they were undertaking.
They got in shooting range and prepared themselves by locating the mother and baby and father and prepared to shoot.
They knew timing was pertinent.
The gorillas were in an fairly open area and mostly on the ground and brush and jungle and vegetation and trees.
Mountainous jungle terrain.
The nod was given and they fired on the parents and immediately all hell broke loose with panic and fear and scattering and running of those remaining.
They knew what guns and these white hunters from London and other parts of the European Kingdom meant.
Certain death and total destruction.
The group of about twenty or more scattered everywhere and the humans rushed in to net the baby but every time they would get close baby would scream and the other adults and teenagers and adolescents would stop in their tracts and turn and run toward baby to help him and then the hunters would shoot and kill them and the whole cycle would happen again.
This happens several times until there are no more mature and maturing individuals left as they had killed all of them and could now take the baby and did.
