What happened bears repeating: the man, aided by several guides, did not stalk a wild beast who was a danger to anyone. The animal was lured out of his safety zone in a park and was blinded by a spotlight. Palmer then fired a high-powered weapon to injure the lion, who, with a steel arrow stuck through him, crept away and suffered for 40 long hours before the “hunter” arrived and the animal was skinned and decapitated.
It has been alleged that the guides also tried to hide the radio collar on Cecil‘s neck because it contained a tracking device. You’d be forgiven for thinking that behind the dentist’s unnaturally white teeth is a person devoid of moral fibre, conscience or decency.
