The poacher who killed the rare silverback gorilla Rafiki is jailed for 11 years

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

A poacher who confessed to killing a rare silverback gorilla in Uganda in June. Has been sentenced to 11 years in prison. We could just leave him in there for his life. As far as I'm concerned on charges of illegally entering a protected area and killing Rafiki, the silverback gorilla, he was the leader of a group of more than a dozen guerrillas. Known as the new HQ, Ringo Troop, which had been popular with visitors to the area. People like to come and sit and get us quote kind of as close to them as they can and just watch them. The guerrillas, and but there's some of this guy. Shot him. Rafiki was believed to be about 25 years old when he went missing on June
