Transporters arrested in Brazzaville

Members of a boat crew, including the captain, were arrested on October 9 in Brazzaville, having been found to have accepted (and been paid) to transport a live chimpanzee from northern Congo all the way to Brazzaville.

When the young chimpanzee was seized, he was in a critical state. Chimpanzees are protected by Congolese law. Not only can poachers be arrested for killing great apes, but so can traffickers, transporters and buyers.
