Sir: The assertion that humans do not hunt and kill species closely related to us in the way that chimpanzees hunt colobus monkeys (letter, 10 February) is belied by the recent story that HIV probably crossed to humans from eating infected chimpanzee meat. We are a lot more closely related to chimps than they are to colobus.
