Episode Summary

EDIT
December 09, 2007 Gorilla Massacre; Addiction Cure or Con; LaDainian Tomlinson
AIRED:
December 09, 2007 Gorilla Massacre; Addiction Cure or Con; LaDainian Tomlinson Anderson Cooper reports on one of the worst mass murders in the animal world in the past year. Ten, very endangered Mountain Gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo were slaughtered by terrorists of a different kind. With only about 700 left on earth, preserving them means preserving their habitat. Their habitat is worth more as charcoal to some dealers with a powerful message to those wanting to protect the last of these magnificent creatures: “If you don’t stop, we can kill all the gorillas”. In our second story, Scott Pelley investigates the claims of a former junk-bond salesman who now promotes ‘Prometa’, a supposed cure for methamphetamine addiction. Is it for real or for profit? Also, San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson talks with Bob Simon as he hands out Thanksgiving dinners, contributes goods to underprivileged children. Finally, a nice story from the sports world.moreless
