Default PETA Wants Lion-Hunting Dentist Killed

Quote:
"He needs to be extradited, charged, and, preferably, hanged"

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) called for the execution of the American dentist who killed Cecil the lion in a statement Tuesday condemning the shooting.

“Hunting is a coward’s pastime,” said PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in the statement. “If, as has been reported, this dentist and his guides lured Cecil out of the park with food so as to shoot him on private property, because shooting him in the park would have been illegal, he needs to be extradited, charged, and, preferably, hanged.”
Quote:
Walter James Palmer, a U.S. citizen from Minnesota, allegedly paid $50,000 to kill Cecil, a 13-year-old male lion, on a game-hunting trip to Zimbabwe. Palmer has said that he “relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt.”

Newkirk is far from the only person to condemn the shooting of Cecil. Jeffrey Flocken, who leads the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s North American branch, said in a blog post that the incident was a “sad reminder of what greed and exploitation of wildlife can lead to.” Even late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel chimed in, devoting a segment on his show to the lion killing and at one point tearing up while discussing the death.

“The big question is ‘why are you shooting a lion in the first place?'” said Kimmel. “How is that fun?”
Evidently Cecil was known and beloved among park visitors and employees.
Also Me Palmer had had probation for a similar killing of a bear (luring prey from a restricted area).

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.

It's just as much the guides fault for getting this guy into trouble, don't forget. The hunter is in a strange place and relies on his guides for when, were and what...

They F'ed up big time.

Who gives a sh1t about what PETA says. We say it should stand for "people for eating tasty anaimals" around here...

Vegetarians are wimpy....

I agree with you for the most part but not all vegetarians are wimpy. Just saying.

First question: Is he guilty of any crime?

I don't know if they are wimpy or not and don't care. I do think they are goofy hippies. I do have a problem with vegans who try to coerce others to not eat meat. Also I think it is worthy of note that most vegetarians are pro abortion. Just an example of the liberal self contradictory thought process

If four d guilty yes poaching. They can probably tack in more regarding luring an animal from a national park.

He claims he didn't know the hunt was illegal.

That said, I hate to see any majestic animal (such as a lion) killed for the purpose of sport.

I agree with you. I just think it might be a good idea to find a crime before we begin to tie the hangman's noose.
