From the articke:
... "Legal expert, Eric Freyfogle, a law professor at the University of Illinois told the Huffington Post he believes unlawful poaching of big-game is a crime in both Zimbabwe and the United States.
Freyfogle also says that Dr. Palmer may have contravened the Lacey Act, which makes it a federal crime to transport any wildlife taken in violation of a foreign country's law.
Even though there appears to be a legal case, Herbert V. Larson, a professor of international law at Tulane, says that he thinks Zimbabwe will not go through with a request because it is too time consuming.
His advice to Dr. Palmer is 'plead guilty, pay a huge fine and publicly apologize'."

Apologize!?! How can that #$%&# apologize to Cecil :'(

I really don't think anyone gives a damn about an apology from this scumbag! He's probably going to wish he saved some of his money for a bodyguard and a team of lawyers!! He's a black-hearted bastard and now the world knows it!!!

I'm afraid AniMae is correct....Zimbabwe is corrupt and, with enough money, he'll walk.

Hmmm - what other society places such a high value on caring about money? Oh, yeah, the USA.

Scooby, it won't let me arrow is still there when I try to sign. About Palmer, I was about to post a video I watched on yesterday on AOL; PETA implied they wanted to hunt down Palmer, shoot him with an arrow, leave him overnight to suffer, than shoot him with a gun and skin him...I felt it was too violent for me...couldn't stand to post it....Jimmy Kimmel was a much different story....sorry I couldn't sign.

Thank you for the report, Scooby. I don't want to see another picture of the monster.
Scum. Let him face punishment.

As for 'apology' ------ no! Not going o bring Cecil back!
I so hope he faces charges, and he is not going to weasel out of this, with the help of bribes, etc.
Bernadette said it - 'He's a black-hearted bastard and now the world knows it!!!"

Noted and shared. Hope this is true and this bastard suffers the same as Cecil did, let him suffer for 40 hrs as he did with Cecil, no longer for all the other animals he has killed, even hell is too good a place for him, hope they castrate him on the way. Deal with him in the USA Zimbabwe is too corrupt, money speaks all languages there. . RIP Dear Cecil. Thank you for sharing Scooby

I have no problem with him turned into a wall trophy.
everyone involved is now trying to make themselves into "the good guys"'s bullshit. They knew what they were doing , got paid for it with lion blood money and want to go about with their "careers" as big game guides.
