Hunting is a coward's pastime. To get a thrill at the cost of a life, this overblown, over-privileged little man gunned down a beloved lion with a high-powered weapon, leaving a family of cubs vulnerable to attack.

S+N+S Let's get this bastard! He can not be allowed to walk away from this one. He has already been suspended and fined for such actions. He says he did not know Cecil was special, but he took the collar off Cecil after the shot him with the arrow, Cecil wandered for 40 hours before this bastard finally killed him, this beautiful animal was harming no one. Zimbabwe? wants Palmer extradited to judged and hopefully killed there.

Signed, the one here when I last looked at it last night had more than 800,000 signatures. I don't think I have ever seen that money on any Care2 petition before, not even close to it. This "person" lives in my state. What a pathetic excuse for a human being he is. Not good enough to shoot, he needs to get close enough to use a bow to get the full experience of coldblooded murder. Far too many with such blood lust in them in the world today, in a time when hunting is no longer part of feeding a family, it ought be banned completely in my opinion, everywhere all the time. I'd include killing humans in that statement but the odds of banning hunting just for lesser creatures are much better, I don't know what it would take to stop humans killing each other.

That sadistic murdering SOB needs to be shot with a crossbow, suffer for 40 hrs., have all his teeth pulled out with a pair of pliers, skinned, and beheaded just like he did to poor, helpless Cecil. Walter James Palmer is a subhuman, heartless, soulless, monster who doesn’t even deserve to live. And anyone who thinks for one nanosecond that this piece of shit thought this was legal is as crazy as he is. Send his ass back to Zimbabwe and let him be punished their way along with his cohorts. I hope all of them die & burn in hell for eternity. It is sickening to know that such sickos inhabit this planet. What makes it even worse is that he shows no remorse whatsoever!!

Noted. My heart always sinks when I think of Cecil, signing these petitions. I pray Palmer, and all involved in this killing (murder) of Cecil get prosecuted, and sent to Zimbabwe prison for life. We will stop permits for canned/ trophy hunting once and for all. Thanks for always caring Cal, and all here.

#9,9842. Trophy "hunting" or worse canned "hunting" is murder of the innocent. Palmer shot Cecil, an evil act. To see a truly sadistic and remorseless trophy "hunter" look on pages 98 & 99 of the August edition of National Geographic. Kerry Krottinger of Dallas, Texas is surrounded by more endangered animals including, among the full size animals three lions, innumerable mounted heads, rugs, tusks, horns and birds then Palmer ever dreamed of. The room is enormous and the collection so vast that you can't even see all of it. He uses the same idiotic reasoning I've heard before, "My spending on trophy hunts helps sway African nations to conserve animals that draw visitors." Absurd. You can't protect wildlife by killing it, especially on this scale. If Palmer is going to be strung up Krottinger should be drawn and quartered. Thanks, Cal.
