About Cecil the Lion, we are supposed to believe the POS poacher who shot him saying he didn't know Cecil was tagged and the hunt illegal? The dude has a prior for illegal hunting here in the states, forging documents and trying to cover up an illegal kill(of a fucking black bear, not like he was hunting for meat even). Beyond that, they parked outside of a wildlife preserve and LURED OUT A FUCKING LION TO HUNT. Does it matter if it was Cecil or a non collared lion who came out? NO. You still LURED an animal out of a PROTECTED ZONE to KILL it. You are not a hunter. You are a sociopath. This is not the first illegal hunt this "man" has been on. This is not the first time he has been caught in a lie, either. He is a felon.
He TRACKED CECIL FOR 40 HOURS
after shooting him with an arrow. That's right, Cecil suffered for 40 hours with an arrow wound before the fucking dentist finally ended it with a rifle, skinned and decapitated him(removing the radio collar that Cecil wore as part of an Oxford University research project), AND LEFT HIS CORPSE TO ROT. This is no "accident", this is murder. Cold, calculating murder of a protected animal. If it were really a "misunderstanding", wouldn't he have contacted the university or something when he realized who Cecil was? Cecil was the most famous lion in Zimbabwe. He was literally a Celebrity. I firmly believe this dentist paid to SPECIFICALLY kill Cecil
; not "just" a lion. This was the literal murder of a specific animal. #CecilTheLion
