Africa illegal bushmeat virus 2012 01 11

A woman prepares a porcupine for the pot in a small Cameroonian village close to Nyabissam, July 27, 2011. This woman risks the transmission of animal disease pathogens to her own body during the bloody preparation process. Any cuts on her hands or arms could see a transmission of disease from the animal to her, a fact that many consumers of bushmeat are unaware.
