I have two questions concerning the passage below.
These chimpanzees in a national park are lucky. It is not so good for those in other parts of Africa. In many places the forests where chimps once lived have been cut down for timber, or to make space for houses or crops. They are hunted for food in some places. Often mothers are shot and their infants are taken. These infants are sold for zoos and circuses, for pets, and for medical research. It is terrible, and some nights I cannot sleep for thinking of it all, and planning ways to try to help the chimpanzees.
But at least in Tanzania the chimpanzees are well protected. They have learned to trust us - and we must never let them come to harm at our hands.
1. They are hunted for food in some places.
Does it mean they hunt chimps for eating(to eat)? Well, I guess so...
Or...does it mean "They are hunted and sold away to get food they need to live"??(Well...I don't think so.)
2.we must never let them come to harm at our hands.
I'm not really sure what it means...Could anybody put it in another way?
Thank you in advance!
