After the tragic shooting of Cecil the Lion, organizations are rallying in the fight for animal conservation.

After Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer illegally killed the protected lion in Zimbabwe, Ty has created a Cecil the Lion Beanie Baby as an animal rights fundraiser! Company founder and chairman Ty Warner said:

"Hopefully, this special Beanie Baby will raise awareness for animal conservation and give comfort to all saddened by the loss of Cecil."

On Monday, the company said they would pledge all profits from its sales to WildCRU — the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit of University of Oxford "in memory of the beloved lion tragically killed."

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.

And for that he's truly sorry.

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