    MN - Dentist Kills a Tame Lion- Catches Heat, July 2015

    http://www.foxnews.com/science/2015/...ll-cecil-lion/

    This Minnesota dentist apparently paid some big bucks for the thrill of killing a lion while on safari in Africa, one problem- the lion was tame and loved as a pet by locals and was sheltered on a game reserve. This guy is catching hell on line and when he gets back home shortly he may find he needs to do some PR with his practice.

    I have no issues with someone hunting for food or to protect their livestock or family. This sort of thing is just way out of place today.

    Here's the business that organises such outings.

    Ugh I scrolled through the pics on the fb page and had to stop. I thought some of those like the Zebra were endangered. I understand hunting for food. But for trophies and game, I don't think so. People are aware of the fb page now and looks like comments are picking up. Sad Cecil is gone. He was very much loved it appeared.

    Maybe I'm wrong but I was glad to see on the Today show this morning that he's had to close his practice. He's also been getting death threats. When the hunter becomes the hunted.

    The American dentist who killed a well-known lion in Zimbabwe also has a felony record over the hunting of black bear in Wisconsin, court documents show.

    There's also a video at the above link, describing how this majestic animal suffered for 40 minutes after he was wounded with an arrow, before this despicable 'trophy' hunter eventually shot and killed him with his gun.

    'Trophy' hunting needs to be outlawed internationally. It sickens me that it still occurs in this day and age.
    To understand the soul of a horse is the closest we humans can come to knowing perfection.

    I hope he gets extradited to Zimbabwe to face charges.

    To me, it does seem particularly sick to kill an animal for fun and using an arrow, when there are better ways, is very much like sadism.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    Karma's a b**ch sometimes. Hope he's enjoying his.

    So let's go ahead and ruin someone's life because they did something we don't agree with. Why is this even news?

    You're kidding right? I suppose we could start with the fact that they lured that beautiful creature out of a national park and pursued the cat for hours before he was shot with a crossbow, then let him suffer for hours and hours before finally shooting him then skinning and beheading him- all so this guy could take some pictures and have yet another wall mount.

    At the current rate of decline, lions will be extinct by 2050. Not only was this lion killed but the 12 cubs he sired have now been killed or will be killed by another male lion taking over the pride. 13 lions taken out so this dude could stand on top of a lion for a photo op and show his pearly whites. A lot of people are offended by that. It's just the way some people are---they care.

    Why isn't the organization that arranged the hunt taking the heat.
