Insiders reveal that Jericho was gunned down in Huwange National Park just days after his brother was cruelly killed by dentist, Walter Palmer. A spokesperson for the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said:

"It is with great sadness and regret that we report that Jericho was shot dead … We are absolutely heartbroken."

WHAT. How did this even happen?!

What makes this situation even worse is that Jericho was in charge of taking care of Cecil's cubs who are now in danger without the presence of a male lion.

Ugh! We're so sickened!

Dr. Walter J. Palmer, the dentist who killed Cecil the Lion, is unlikely to face any legal consequences for his murderous actions.

Because Cecil wasn't killed on protected land, there's a good chance he'll just get away with it. Well, legally.

Socially, he's going to have a tough time, starting with his dental practice.

Besides gathering and leaving signs and stuffed animals at Palmer's actual offices, protesters have also taken their fight online, posting hundreds of one-star Yelp reviews for his practice.

Of course, it's Yelp, so he may be able to pay to remove those eventually, but for now it's all just too much; he's had to shut down business temporarily.

And for that he's truly sorry.

Palmer penned a letter to his patients apologizing for the inconvenience, saying:

What goes around, comes around!

We can't believe that we live in a world where humans feel the need to viciously murder other living creatures, and Cecil the Lion is just the latest case of animal cruelty in the news.

Walter Palmer, the American dentist who killed Cecil, may still be in hiding, but we're hoping that he will have to eventually face poaching charges in Zimbabwe once he resurfaces.

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadLionsAnimal CrueltyViral: News

Cecil the Lion's death will not be in vain.

In the past couple days there has been a ton of international outrage over the death of Cecil The Lion, a beloved big cat that was killed by a U.S. hunter in Zimbabwe.

But it appears Cecil's death wont be in vain, as local officials are saying his bones will be used to create an anti-poaching memorial.

Johnny Rodrigues of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force recently revealed plans to place the memorial in Hwange National Park in hopes of raising awareness about the perils of poaching.

Cecil's body is currently out in the open so vultures and other carnivores can make use of all of the meat before they decide to build the memorial.

We can't wait to see the final result and it's amazing to know that this beautiful creature's death isn't going to waste.

This is absolutely disgusting.

Police are looking for an American dentist who spent $50,000 to kill one of Zimbabwe's most famous lions!

Earlier this month, Cecil the lion was beheaded and skinned after Walter James Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, paid to shoot and kill the beloved creature with a bow and arrow.

Conservation groups were outraged after learning the 13-year-old animal was murdered on July 1 in Hwange National Park — partly because Cecil was lured out of the park and shot.
