Ndakasi, beloved mountain gorilla of photobomb fame, dies in caretaker’s arms at age 14


Her life began with tragedy. In April 2007, rangers on the Congolese park discovered a 2-month-old Ndakasi “clinging to the lifeless physique of her mom, gunned down by armed militia hours earlier,” park officers mentioned in an announcement. Her mom’s dying was a part of a sequence of massacres of gorilla households within the area that led the park to strengthen the safety of its mountain gorillas, they added.
