Dudu Lokangia, 41 years, preparing a trap in the forest, Yangambi, DRC. The main animals that are hunted are warthogs, monkeys and Gambia rats. Forests have plenty of animals although in decline compared to 10 years ago. Hunters set up up to 20 traps in one morning and go back to check after two or three days. Warthogs and Gambia rats are generally caught with the traps and monkeys taken down with a rifle. There are four month in a year (from Aurgust to November) in which it is forbidden to sell bush meat.
