While Cecil the lion may have unfortunately rocketed to fame after being killed illegally by an American hunter, his brother Jericho has a security detail to ensure that won't happen to him, too.

According to reports, officials from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force are monitoring and tracking Jericho around the clock to ensure nothing suspicious happens to him with regards to poachers.

Apparently, Jericho is now the alpha male for Cecil's pride of lions, and should the remaining brother be killed, too, that pride would be left unprotected in the wild — a dangerous situation in the animal kingdom.

So while the report that came to light Sunday over Jericho's death was thankfully incorrect, it appears Zimbabwean officials still aren't taking any chances with this lion.

Walter Palmer may not be facing criminal charges — at least, in America — for killing Cecil the Lion, but perhaps the next hunter will!

Senator Menendez said in a statement:

Alleged Charleston Church Shooter Dylann Roof Has Pleaded Not Guilty To All Charges

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadViolence

Dylann Roof has pleaded not guilty.

The accused gunman in last month's tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina has pleaded not guilty to all federal charges.

According to authorities, Dylann Roof had confessed to shooting and killing nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 18.

The alleged murderer's lawyer admitted that the 21-year-old actually wanted to plead guilty to all 33 federal charges. However, the attorney said he couldn't allow his client to do so.

The counsel explained that he couldn't advise Dylann since the government is still deciding whether or not it will seek the death penalty for his accused crimes.

We hope that whatever the government decides, justice is served on behalf of all the victims and their families. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.
