Minnesota Dentist Will Be Watching His Back.....



This is just wrong.....










Cecil the lion – the most famous creature in one of Zimbabwe's national parks – was killed by an American hunter who has boasted about shooting a menagerie of animals with his bow and arrow, The Telegraph can reveal.
Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, is believed to have paid £35,000 to shoot and kill the much-loved lion with a bow and arrow. The animal was shot on July 1 in Hwange National Park. Two independent sources have confirmed the hunter's identity to the paper, which has also seen a copy of the relevant hunting permit.
Conservation groups in Zimbabwe reacted angrily to the news that the 13-year-old animal had been killed: partly because the lion was known to visitors and seemingly enjoyed human contact, and partly because of the way in which he was killed. He was lured out of the national park and shot.
"He never bothered anybody," said Johnny Rodrigues, the head of Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force. "He was one of the most beautiful animals to look at."

  1. This guy better go into Witness Protection.

    The Lefties will hate him cause they're bunny-huggers.

    The Conservatives will hate him because they're both conservationists and value responsible weapon use.

  3. I can understand hunting for food, taking out a badly injured animal or for protecting your animals and land against a predator, but to kill wildlife for just a trophy and have your name put in a record book? That man has some major self-worth issues. Big time. You're not a hunter if you have to use bait traps.

  4. I don't have a problem with him killing for trophies, he'll every state has hunting clubs and trophy ranches just for that. Alaska has a tourist season just for bears and moose. I have a HUGE problem with the fact he didn't use the right weapon for the job. You don't use a bow on a damn lion. It's in humane, the whole point is to kill them quickly wether you are doing it for sport or food.
