IRIN Africa | Bush meat trade roaring again despite Ebola ban

“Liberia doesn’t have Ebola any more so we should be allowed to eat bush meat again.’ ‘We’ve been eating it without any problem for generations.’ These are common refrains in Liberian markets, where the trade in bush meat, a known source of the Ebola virus, has picked up once again. As Liberia approaches its two-month mark of being Ebola-free on 9 July, complacency has set in. Monkeys, antelope, raccoons, rodents, bats, and a variety of other animals native to the forests of Liberia, are once again filling market stalls around the country.”
