So far, despite guilty convictions from PETA and Flamin' environmentalist fools no one has proved the good doctor did anything illegal or wrong.

If it wasn't for the hunting community, the true conservationalist amongst us, there would be no conservation of fish and wildlife in our nation or the continent of Africa.

I know of few environmentalist who pay the fees and taxes involved in keeping our rivers stocked and our game populations healthy.

But what may have happened here is a hunter was taken in by deceit when he paid those fees to hunt (what he assumed to be legally) in Africa. Such is how the nations of Africa support their efforts to conserve their environment and the ecosystems within their jurisdictions. But to crucify him without proof of malice? Totally beyond reason.
You are correct. This situation was a state approved guide leading a state sponsored hunt, adjacent to a state maintained preserve, funded with a $50,000 check made out to the state and presumably conducted in a state approved method. And a hunter who is being vilified and his business and personal life destroyed.

If anything, the guide and preserve personnel should have been aware that Cecil was a pet, not fair game, and the hunt conducted in a save Cecil manner.
And since the state obviously did not deliver on their part of the bargain, shouldn't the doctor's check be refunded?

If anything, the guide should

Also Me Palmer had had probation for a similar killing of a bear (luring prey from a restricted area).

PETA Cecil The Lion Walter Palmer: Animal Rights Groups Respond

I don't agree that Palmer should be put to death, but if found guilty perhaps so heavily fined he will not do this kind of thing ever again.

Long ago I think some of Planned Parenthood joined them..

Not that it is right to harm just any animal it isn't. But this is another country that makes big $ off hunting big game animals.

From what I know it is his native guides who blew this.

Ask hunters who’ve been on Safari what happens when they whack out a lion or leopard or elephant. Sure, in Hollywood, Manhattan, London and Paris they moan and wail. But in the immediate vicinity of this form of pest-control the locals rejoice! There’s a "Lion Dance" a "Leopard Dance" an "Elephant Dance." “Let’s celebrate!” cheer the locals. “A pest is dead!”

Imagine the bug-spray man coming to your house: "Tell ya what," he says. "I’ll give ya 100 bucks for every roach I kill, $200 for any rats and a cool 500 semolions for a whack at the raccoon messing up your attic."

Who would take up for someone wanted for questioning regarding indiscriminate poaching?
Only a trained drone.

Is he wanted for questioning?, or do you just wish it were so? I have seen no arrests made, no warrants issued. Last I heard, the US posted Zimbabwe officials claim to have no requests regarding the incident. So who is the party wanting to question him?

Legal hunting in a country allowing this hunting is NOT poaching, let alone indiscriminate poaching.
