When it rains, it pours, unfortunately!

After Cecil the lion's death swept across the Internet last week, and his brother Jericho's near-death was front and center this past weekend, now we are getting word that yet another American doctor — this time, a gynecologist from Pennsylvania — has killed a lion in Zimbabwe without a permit.

Back in April, doctor Jan Casmir Seski of Pennsylvania traveled to Zimbabwe, where he took part in a hunt headed by a safari organizer named Headman Sibanda. Sibanda was one of the men arrested in a crackdown following Cecil's death at the hands of Dr. Walter Palmer, and his involvement with Seski is just now coming to light.

Caroline Washaya-Moyo, the head of Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, said in a statement referencing Seski's hunt a few months ago:

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:

***WARNING: GRAPHIC CASES OF ANIMAL CRUELTY BELOW***

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.

However, even though Walter has yet to face any immediate legal ramifications for his crime, you can take solace knowing that his vicious slaying has caused his Minnesotan dental practice to close.

***WARNING: Extremely Graphic Video Below***

What absolute filth.

Video of a pet store worker beating his animals is going viral, and it might just be the most grotesque thing we've ever seen.

Employees at Maskota Pet Store in Pachuca, Mexico were featured in three separate videos where they can be seen slapping chihuahuas and actually crushing a hamster to death.

It's absolutely vile, but luckily, Mexican citizens are protesting the Plaza Galerías where the store is located and the company itself has filed a complaint against the workers.

Additionally, one of the abusers was attacked by protesters when they recognized him from the disgusting clips…

We definitely don't condone violence, but getting punched in the face seems like very light punishment considering how terrible the videos are.

Check out the least disturbing video of the trio (below):
