Hunter Who Helped Dentist Kill Cecil The Lion Speaks Out & Explains How 'The Hunt Went Wrong From The Beginning'!

no title

Walter Palmer became the world's most despised dentist after he paid to kill Africa's beloved lion Cecil earlier this month.

Now, the professional hunter who accompanied the dentist on the July 1 hunt is speaking out, and he says that "the hunt went wrong from the beginning!"

On Wednesday, Theo Bronkhorst gave a detailed account of the hunt to officials. The Bulawayo native is forbidden from continuing his hunting business which he's run since 1992, and is devastated by the outrage directed at him for Cecil's death.

Though, Bronkhorst's account of the hunt makes it sound like there was a lot of confusion surrounding Dr. Palmer's trip. He explained:

"When Dr Palmer arrived in Bulawayo, his luggage was missing and I was dashing around looking for it. So we were late getting ready to go. And we were never meant to hunt on the land where this lion was shot. At the last minute I had to divert from a concession [hunting area] about eight miles away."

Bronkhorst explained that, on the night of July 1, he was accompanied by

PETA Still Trying To Change Dumbo's Ending! Now They're Asking Recently Announced Director Tim Burton!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyTim BurtonPETAAnimal RightsElephants

no title

We feel like PETA is like a little kid trying to figure out which parent to ask for more ice cream. Who is more likely to satiate their sweet tooth… but for a pretty decent reason.

When PETA heard that Disney was remaking Dumbo, they asked that the studio change the film's ending.

The original Dumbo ends with the eponymous elephant becoming a hit circus act and everything ends happily!

Though, now we all know the circus isn't the best place for elephants. Heck, even Ringling Bros. has promised to get rid of their elephant acts by 2018!!

So, now that the Dumbo remake has director Tim Burton on board, PETA is asking him what they already asked Disney. PETA's Senior VP Lisa Lange wrote a letter to the director, that said, in part:

We just wish it was happening a bit sooner!

The twin touring circus companies — Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus — have made a MAJOR announcement on Thursday about the future of their circuses and one of the main pieces of information that they let loose concerned the elephants in the show.

Olivia Munn isn't just beautiful, smart and famous… she's also compassionate — her best quality if you ask us!

Last week, she wrote a plea for help on behalf of a poor elephant named Nosey.

Nosey the circus elephant suffers from debilitating arthritis and Olivia took it upon herself to write a letter on PETA's behalf to Tom Vilsack, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. It read:

PETA Wants Disney To Change The Ending To Their Live-Action Dumbo Remake!

dumbo elephant crying sad ending

When it comes to animals, no matter how good things get, they're rarely good enough.

And that's why PETA has felt the need to step in and remind us of the fact that animals often get the short end of the stick, even under the best circumstances.

Just like with Disney's live-action remake of Dumbo!

Everyone can get excited over the fact that Disney isn't using real animals in the movie. That's an amazing, progressive step forward for the film industry.

But that doesn't change the fact that the Dumbo story ends with him becoming a star attraction at the circus.

While it's a happy ending, in real life, an elephant ending up at a circus is never happy.

Satao was a seriously impressive elephant who lived in Tsavo East National park in northern Kenya.

He was one of the last of the great tuskers: genetically unique bull elephants whose tusks are so huge, they can rest them on the ground while standing.

Sadly, Satao was killed by poachers.
