Scientists believe they have discovered a new group of giant apes in the jungles of central Africa.

The animals, with characteristics of both gorillas and chimpanzees, have been sighted in the north of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

According to local villagers, the apes are ferocious, and even capable of killing lions.

A report about the mysterious creatures is published in this week's edition of the UK magazine New Scientist.

If they are a new species of primate, it could be one of the most important wildlife discoveries in decades.

One sighting, one video, and some nests and they announce they have discovered a new ape, yet we have thousands of sightings, tracks, DNA, structures, call recordings, etc and we are considered crazy.  <insert appropriate profanities here>

I thought the exact same thing.  We have multiple sightings by credible people, including all walks of law enforcement.  Of course there are similar primates in that part of the world and none in North America.  Although Africa has its share of humanoid cryptids, both small and large, that have had many sightings from antiquity, but it's too much for science.
