A hunter, carries a rifle bushmeat followed by his dogs. He provides monkey meat to the town and surrounding community. Estimates are that between 30 and 85% of daily protein intake of Africans comes from bushmeat.
Population growth and the commercialization of the trade in bushmeat creates hunting pressure upon wild animal populations. Wildlife numbers are rapidly declining, and there are concerns that animal diseases may be transmitted to humans.
