A gorilla has been born after it bit a pregnant woman while on a hunting trip in a remote region of Cameroon.
The pregnant woman has been discharged from hospital, but she will need to have a CAT scan to determine the condition of the unborn child, a police official told AFP news agency.
The woman, named only as Pilar, was bitten on the back by a female gorilla during the hunting trip on Friday, the official said.
She was taken to a hospital where doctors were able to give her a blood transfusion, the statement said.
Police are investigating.
A spokesperson for the park told AFP that a female and male gorilla were on a hunt in the area when they were bitten.
“The woman was walking with a male gorilla and she was bitten by the female gorilla,” the statement read.
“She was immediately rushed to hospital and is being treated.”
The park added that “the female and female gorillas were involved in a fight in the jungle” before the gorilla bit the pregnant woman.
“We are working with local authorities to determine who was responsible for the incident,” the park said.
