      From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

      Scientists identified a type of chimpanzee in West Africa as the source
      of HIV infection in humans. *The virus most likely jumped to humans when
      humans hunted these chimpanzees for meat* and came into contact with
      their infected blood. Over several years, the virus slowly spread across
      Africa and later into other parts of the world. For more information
