“Find another dentist who isn’t a psychopath and cares about all life”
What the story is saying is that the Zimbabwe lion was in the National Park where he had been illegally lured out into the open, then next what happened foreign tourists which handed out fifty-five thousand dollars shot and killed the thirteen year old big cat just for a trophy. He was known,
for his willingness to be photographed, and wore a GPS collar — which the hunters removed — as part of a research project. And the circumstances of his death were particularly despicable: according to Johnny Rodrigues, who heads up the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, Cecil “was lured out of a national park with food, shot with a crossbow, tracked for 40 more hours, then finished off with a gun.”
According to the Telegraph, the culprit was this guy: Walter Palmer, a Minnesota-based trophy hunter “said to be capable of skewering a playing card from 100 yards with his compound bow” as well as a dentist who boasts of his “unique talent for creating dazzling smiles that complement each individuals tooth structure, skin tone, and facial attributes.” (Palmer disputes the charges, telling the Star Tribune, ““Obviously, some things are being misreported.”)
The professional hunter who assisted Palmer, as well as the owner of the land bordering the park where Cecil was killed, are facing poaching charges. And while there’s no word on Palmer’s criminal liability, his dental practice is suddenly boasting some pretty horrendous one-star Yelp reviews.
