A. Killed for tourism. B. The future leader.
C. Still in danger. D. A heroic death.
E. Useful hunting. F. Save the gorilla.
Digit was a shy , gentle mountain gorilla who was given his name
because of a broken finger.(«Digit» means «finger»). He was one of a group of eleven gorillas which was led by a large adult male known as Uncle Bert. In time, Digit would probably become leader himself, or gone off to start a new group of his own. But this never happened
Disaster struck on the last day of 1977, when Digit was killed by a gang of poachers, people who hunt and kill wild animals illegally. His group had been chased for five kilometres and some of the younger gorillas were too terrified and too tired to keep running. To save his group Digit stayed to fight the poachers and gave the other gorillas a chance to escape.
The saddest thing about Digit's death is that he was killed only for his head and his hands. The poachers had been offered about $10 for them by a local shopkeeper. They would be solid to tourists.
Only one of Digit's killers was caught, but the others are probably still free and still poaching. They continue their illegal hunting in Virginia Volcanoes National Park. Although the park was set to protect the wild animals there, the park officers haven't got enough money or policemen to catch the poachers.
Only about 500 mountain gorillas are left, but this number is decreasing rapidly.
Wildlife organizations are now trying to raise money to protect the park and its wildlife. Money is needed to organize the park patrol against the poachers. Also, if more tourists visit the park there will be more money to help pay to for this project. Action must be taken quickly. If not, it is possible that many more mountain gorillas may meet the same end as Digit.
For questions 16-20 read the text and choose the correct answer: A, B or C.
