Remember The Dentist Who Killed Cecil The Lion? Someone Just Stole & Crashed His $61,000 Boat!

no title

Hate thy neighbor.

It's with a heavy heart that we must report that the world lost yet another gorgeous creature this week… a boat belonging to Dr. Walter Palmer.

You may remember the infamous Minnesota dentist as the man who paid $55,000 to kill Cecil the Lion only to suffer zero legal consequences due to Zimbabwean hunting laws… but instant karma may have finally caught up to him.

That's because a neighbor near the good doctor's Florida vacation home just stole and crashed his $61,000 boat on Sunday!

Apparently, 26-year-old Andrew Derwin and a friend noticed that one of Walt's employees had the left the keys out in the open in his Marco Island backyard, and promptly swiped them for a breezy Summer joyride.

Unfortunately for the pair, Andrew crashed the boat later that afternoon — resulting in emergency first aid after the other passenger seriously injured himself on the boat's propeller!

The thief has a criminal history of 13 prior arrests and is currently being held on $10,000 bail, and we cannot wait to see this aquatic vessel-killer brought to justice to the fullest extent of the law!

Too bad he didn't just murder a manatee or something… probably would have gotten off with a warning. Right, Doc?

'World's Saddest Polar Bear' Arturo Dies After 22 Years In Unbearable Living Conditions

no title

A sad tale with a tragic end.

Arturo, often called "the world's saddest polar bear", has passed away after being trapped inside an unbearable Argentinian zoo for 22 years.

According to reports, the 30-year-old animal died at Mendoza Zoological Park on Sunday due to unknown circumstances… but surely the 100+°F South American heat didn't help the creature naturally found in the North Pole.

Arturo had been the subject of numerous petitions from animal rights activists — including public protest from Cher herself — but sadly, the zoo never seemed to care about his well-being.

In fact, Assiniboine Park Zoo in Canada tried to take the creature away from his captors, but Mendoza lacked even the basic medical information necessary to guarantee safe transport.

To give you an image of what he endured, the wild animal's enclosure only featured a 20-inch pool and solid concrete slabs… but things took an even more depressing turn in 2012 when Arturo's cellmate Pelusa died from cancer.

How many more animals need to die in order to teach the world to treat our furry friends better??

Rest in peace, Arturo.

Remembering Cecil The Lion A Year After His Tragic Death — Find Out Where His Cubs AND His Killer Are Now!

no title

We can't believe it's been a year.

As you surely remember, Cecil the Lion was mercilessly killed by an American dentist at the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe on July 1, 2015.

Now, a year to the day later, we have some great news about the majestic wild animal that was taken too soon in honor of the anniversary of his death.

While Cecil's brother Jericho was initially thought to be dead, not only has he survived the entire year without the leader of the pride… but all three of his lionesses and all seven of his cubs are alive as well!

Unfortunately, not everyone is as excited about Cecil's family thriving — in fact, the lion's shooter Dr. Walter Palmer doesn't seem to care at all!

According to a Daily Mail report, the Minnesota dentist was actually spotted driving around Minneapolis in his brand new $120,000 Porsche Cayenne Turbo this week, smiling and laughing.

So sad that no one can even charge him with a crime after all this!

In just the past couple months, we've seen the slaughter of both Harambe the Gorilla and Juma the Jaguar, so there's clearly more work to do in regards to wildlife preservation.

Rest in peace, Cecil, Harambe, and Juma.

German Tourist Reportedly Pays $60,000 To Kill One Of The Biggest Elephants Zimbabwe Has Seen In Decades

The elephant was supposedly over 50 years old.

Not another one.

On Friday, wildlife groups in Zimbabwe revealed that a German tourist paid top dollar to kill one of the biggest elephants the nation has seen in years.

According to reports, the hunter shelled out $60,000 to fatally shoot the giant creature, who was believed to be more than 50 years old.

Emmanuel Fundira, chairman of the Safari Operators Association of Zimbabwe, said the animal was murdered on October 8 just outside Gonarezhou National Park.

He explained that, because of the elephant's size, it shouldn't have been gunned down. Rather, he feels it should have been considered a "national treasure," saying it was:

"so huge its tusks were almost hitting the ground while it was standing. We have never seen any animal that big."

He added that humans need to stop being so casual about taking the lives of innocent wildlife:

"We need to discipline ourselves and hold such iconic things sacred."

A spokeswoman for Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority says the hunt was legal only if the proper paperwork was issued, and added that she was not aware of the incident.

Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force chairman Johnny Rodrigues is disgusted by the unnamed tourist's actions, commenting that the country hadn't witnessed an elephant that large in decades:

"The last time one was seen (of such size) was more than 40 years ago. The hunter should not have shot it."

It'll be interesting to see if this sparks the same kind of outrage that Cecil the lion's death did. What do U think, Perezcious readers?

Cecil The Lion's Killer Is Cleared — Zimbabwe Says Dr. Walter Palmer's Infamous Hunt Was Legal!

no title

One of the biggest stories of the summer may have finally come to a conclusion.

Walter Palmer, the infamous dentist at the center of the Cecil the lion killing back in Zimbabwe earlier this summer, has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the hunt.

Zimbabwe's Environmental Minister announced on Monday that Palmer was not doing anything illegal when he killed Cecil, and that the Minnesota dentist's papers were in order before the hunt began.

This comes after Zimbabwe officials had earlier hinted they wanted to potentially extradite Palmer back to the African nation to face charges over the hunt — but now, after being cleared by the government, it would seem a potential extradition obviously won't come.

What do U think — did Zimbabwe make the right call on Palmer? Or does he need to face punishment for killing a well-known lion in the manner he did??

Is This The Last We Will Hear Of Dr. Walter Palmer??
