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:

Lisa Vanderpump is livid!

The reality TV star and animal rights activist unleashed a tirade on Twitter Tuesday after learning dentist Walter Palmer paid to hunt and kill Cecil the lion.

She shared:

Well, we EXCLUSIVELY caught up with Lisa at a Vanderpump Rules event at Frederic Fekkai's L.A. salon Thursday night, and she was still angry and upset about the horrific incident:

"This is a man who is a serial animal killer. You work as hard as he does to earn $50,000 and then want to go [to Africa] and bring a lion's head back. To be, it seems its like a sadistic sickness."

The Dentist Who Killed Cecil The Lion Apologizes — For The Temporary 'Inconvenience' To His Patients!

no title

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:
