Dian Fossey, legend, lived with Gorillas for 20 plus years. She was killed…by a human:
“Dr. Dian Fossey spent 14 years in the Virunga Mountains of Rwanda Studying the huge primates where after a number of years she was accepted by one of the gorilla family groups and treated as a member. After an absence of 3 years, she returns to visit her beloved gorillas to find out if they still remember and accept her.”
