Tear my heart out

I'm looking for an old news story about apes taking revenge on a poacher.

What I remember: it was a poacher who had been killing primates (what kind i don't recall) to sell their hearts on the black market. He was living in a cabin out in the woods near where he hunted them, if my memory serves me. The primates found his cabin and beset him, killed him and tore his heart out.
It could have been anywhere between 5 and 15 years ago that I read this. I could swear that it was in a reputable news source, but I admit it sounds pretty incredible, and I haven't been able to dig up a reference. Anyone else remember this? Any sources for concrete facts about the story?
