Cecil the lion, one of the most famous animals in one of Zimbabwe's national parks, was shot by a bow hunter. The hunter was a dentist from Minnesota who paid $55,000 for a hunting permit before shooting the 13-year-old big cat.

Thanks Lone. Oh I gladly signed this petition. I'm hoping the good people of Minneapolis will boycott Dr. Dooms practice and send him to the poor house. What a sneaky coward. Thanks for making me smile AniMae!

Signed. What do serial murderers and trophy hunters have in common? They both like to keep trophys from their victims.

What an absolute disgrace for a human being. America - you should be ashamed. A lot of the loss of beautiful wildlife in Africa is caused by wealthy nations wanting hunting trophies or body parts for useless medicinal purposes. This dentist needs every tooth in his head extracted by his own tools, without pain killers, and then shot with his own bow and arrow.

More over......, What a small and unbrave person this is. A person with no self respect or respect for wild life. A little human with his/her gun, trying to get some honor. This type of hunters have BIG issues and are one of the most uncertain people who lives on the planet. Put this woman / or man alone in the jungle all by themself or better...., put them ALONE in a disaster area. They would not last or survived long. This is a type of human that depends on people around them and can use them if things go wrong. There is a word for this...., namely cowards! You might say that 99 percent of "strong leaders", are those most cowards. They are absolutely totally depended on others in all ways in life. AND you see it in everyday life :-) And maybe create a fund for psychiatric help to those who carry out poaching. The fund should be established with hunters values, meaning that they have to pay for it by force. It is obvious that these people need psychiatric help, not to mention those who perform canned hunting. I noticed that there often are business leaders (Ceo`s) who perform these actions. This says everything about their uncertainty and cowardice. AND they are the ones leading companies ????

I'm so outraged - thanks Lone. I've signed a number of petitions today and found another one to hopefully save the cubs of Cecil as they're in danger to be killed too!!! Please sign and share widely - thank you!

ZIMBABWE: SAVE CECIL'S CUBS

The six cubs of Cecil will now be killed, as a new male lion in the pride will not allow them to live in order to encourage the lionesses to mate with him.

THIS PETITION WAS SHOWN ON CNN
at 1:00 AM EST this morning. Telling viewers
to go to Care2 to sign it. Showing footage of
protesters at the home of the Dentist Dr. Palmer,
holding signs saying "MURDERER".
Also included was a clip from Jane Goodall.
She expressed her grief over Cecil's demise and
her concern over Big Game Hunting.
Thank you Lone for posting

Trophy Hunting Is Exposing The Weakest and Mentally Ill Members of Our Society

One of the most cowardly and selfish acts now practiced by thousands around the world is trophy hunting--the act of killing defenseless animals for pure sport and pleasure. It clearly takes a special kind of mental illness to engage in this type of activity--one who not only lacks basic empathy, but fails to see the greater consequences of their actions. Earlier this month, locals in Zimbabwe found a protected lion named Cecil shot, beheaded and skinned. After an investigation, the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority has named Cecil's killer as Walter Palmer, a dentist and known big game hunter from Minnesota who is now in hiding and fearing for his life after very serious threats were made once he was exposed as the killer.
