Scum of the earth.
I get that people hunt for food and I respect that but this guy Walter Palmer of Minnesota went out to bag him a Lion which happened to be called Cecil who lived in the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe was lured by the Dentists guides half a mile outside the reservation so he could kill it with a bow and arrow.
Cecil didn't die until the next day when they found him and finished him off.

Here is Cecil and Walter.




He paid 54 grand to kill this lion.
54 grand could do a lot of good in the world and I don't give a crap shooting a lion and letting it suffer is not a good way to spend 54 grand.
Oooo I'm mad..

There was no "hunt" - this was a murder. I also support hunters who kill cleanly for food. However this lion lived on a game reserve. And it was lured. This is beyond sickening. I am furious as well boymonkey74. Such a sad, sad day. I am so ashamed to be human most days.

To me, the reality has long transcended the "Food versus Game" argument. In my opinion, it's more about "endangerment" and "extinction". Fun and games are over, we're too late for that. We must intellectually be engaged in saving the greater balance of our shared planet.

Hunting for food is one thing, hunting for a "thrill kill", seems a bit psychopathic to me.

At the very least, this scumbag's career will take a serious hit.

R.I.P. Cecil.

It is scummy and appalling due to being inhumane. As he suffered too. RIP Cecil

Thanks. Read the story. I am an avid hunter (deer,hog,duck,dove etc) and I can't see the appeal of this. I eat everything I shoot and see no purpose in this. People that need heads on walls are insecure in my book.

Disclaimer: I hunt.

But for the life of me, I cannot understand shooting some endangered (or almost) species. It's like the dudes who "hunt" elephants or rare rhinoceroses. What's the point?

Is this dude going to eat the lion? Are there so many lions they are eating themselves out of house and home? Was this guy defending himself from the lion? Nope all around. Most won't comprehend this but he did not 'know' the animal nor its environment. He wasn't a participant, just an interloper. For me that is the worst.

And $54,000 just to go there and shoot one. I guess money does not buy class.

Flame away...

I don't particularly care for sport hunting that doesn't involve harvesting for food. However, if I am not mistaken, the game reserve actually needs to cull older animals for the safety of the other animals in the parks. As a result, they allow hunters the opportunity to pay for the right to hunt one of these animals. This is one way the reserve raises money to help cover their operating expenses.

Shooting a lion with a bow might piss him off.USA has lots of lions,More tigers than Asia.So if you could kill a lion with a bow Thats like bad ass.Tan that hide, mount the head and make a rug out of it after you feed his bones to your dogs.
cheers
