The latest on the controversy surrounding a Minnesota big-game hunter and his guides in Zimbabwe who killed a protected lion (all times are Central):

12:20 p.m.

The law enforcement arm of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service says it's trying to reach the Minnesota dentist who killed a protected lion while on a guided hunt in Zimbabwe.

In a statement Thursday, Fish & Wildlife Law Enforcement Deputy Chief Edward Grace re-iterated that the agency is investigating circumstances surrounding the death of lion, named Cecil.

Grace says multiple efforts to contact the dentist, Walter Palmer, were unsuccessful and "we ask that Dr. Palmer or his representative contact us immediately."

Palmer hasn't returned emails from The Associated Press. His office voicemail isn't accepting messages and other listed phone numbers have busy signals.
Quote:
A public relations professional released a statement Tuesday from Palmer, who said he was with professional guides and thought the hunt was legal. The firm is no longer helping Palmer.

An attorney who represented Palmer in a prior case also has not returned messages.

——

9:50 a.m.

Safari Club International is suspending the membership of the Minnesota hunter accused of illegally killing a protected lion in Zimbabwe and wants a "full and thorough investigation" into the lion's death.

The club, which promotes big-game hunting worldwide, issued a statement late Wednesday saying memberships for Walter Palmer and his guide in Zimbabwe, Theo Bronkhorst, will be on hiatus until investigations are complete.

Bronkhorst is facing criminal charges in Zimbabwe over the July 1 killing of the beloved lion named Cecil, who was drawn away from a wildlife preserve and shot by Palmer with a bow and arrow. Palmer has said he believed the hunt was legal.

The Safari Club says "those who intentionally take wildlife illegally should be prosecuted and punished to the maximum extent allowed by law."
you know...it occurred to me...duh that this guide chose Cecil for easy access and the quick buck. He knew Cecil would be curious, not afraid of humans etc., and he knew about where Cecil hung out.
makes it doubly despicable if you can get any more despicable than running a wounded animal for 46 hr before beheading him for a trophy. ..

It appears that karma is taking care of this POS lion killer:

Quote:
Dr. Walter Palmer, DDS, closes his practice and is now carrying another moniker – lion killer. Palmer, a Minnesota dentist, was forced to shutter his dental practice after being outed as the American behind the slaying of Zimbabwe’s beloved celebrity cat, Cecil the Lion.

Palmer killed Cecil the Lion – a celebrity lion of sorts at the Hwange National Park, the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe – by shooting the big cat with a crossbow and tracking him for close to 40 hours. The 13-year-old lion was left injured for two days; when Palmer and his hunting crew caught up to the wounded lion, Cecil was killed with a rifle, skinned and beheaded. His head was taken as a trophy, his carcass left to rot.

A White House petition has already been signed by over 100,000 people, calling on Secretary of State John Kerry and Attorney General Loretta Lynch to extradite Palmer to Zimbabwe to face charges. A CARE2 petition to “Tell Zimbabwe to stop issuing hunting permits to kill endangered animals” has been signed by over 600,000 people as of July 29.

The exterior of Palmer's office in Bloomington, Minnesota has been “redecorated” – dozens of stuffed animal lions sit outside, signs hang on the doors and windows denouncing the dentist, who is a member of the big game group Safari Club International and who has “43 bow and arrow kills” to his name. One sign reads, “We are Cecil,” another simply tells Palmer to “Rot in Hell!”

Zimbabwean police have said that they want Palmer to return to Zimbabwe to face a number of charges. It wouldn’t be the first time this dentist was involved in an illegal hunt.Walter Palmer closes practice: Dr. who shot Cecil the Lion getting death threats - Long Island Top News | Examiner.com
Karma can be a b*tch.

Why do we care what the People for the Hypocritical Treatment of Animals thinks?

I don't care what PETA thinks; I care about the despicable thing that hunter did. Killing for food is one thing; killing for fun is sick.

I don't disagree with that one bit, I just think it seem like the Devil condemning a demon.

That is sick.

I do own guns, but I could never kill an animal. I can kind of understand hunting for food, but killing for sport is sick. I don't even fish.

My Dad's summer place has elk and deer come by all the time. He doesn't shoot them, he puts out a salt lick for them so they can have a snack.

All this talk over a BS title. PETA did not call for this dentist to be killed. I didn't even read it and I will bet I am right.
