Zimbabwe Finally Charges Those Involved In Cecil The Lion's Death!

no title

Before we get your hopes up, no, it's not the dentist. But at least someone is paying for the vicious slaying!

Cecil the Lion has led to one of the most controversial stories of the year when he was shot and killed by Dr. Walter Palmer in Zimbabwe last month, but it seems like he's finally getting some justice.

That's because Zimbabwean prosecutors charged Honest Ndlovu, the man who owned the land where Cecil was killed, for allowing an illegal hunt on his land on Tuesday.

Honest's role in Cecil's death could get him either a year in jail or a $400 fine, while Theo Bronkhorst, another hunter who aided Dr. Palmer in the tracking, has also been charged for failing to stop the illegal hunt.

And while it looks like Dr. Palmer will never face any legal ramifications for his part in the murder, hopefully his reputation will negatively affect his role in his recently reopened dentistry practice.

If anything, at least Cecil's death has led to tougher hunting regulations for lions, elephants, and leopards in the area.

Rest in peace, Cecil.

The dentist, who infamously shot Cecil the Lion last month in Zimbabwe, has been out of the public eye ever since worldwide condemnation across the Internet and elsewhere pointed at him for his questionable hunting practices.

Now though, River Bluff Dental, the practice Palmer operates with another dentist and a staff of employees and assistants, has reopened — and staff has made a statement about their work:

The Dentist Who Killed Cecil The Lion Got Busted For Illegally Killing A Black Bear — And The Disturbing Pics Will Make You Hate Him Even More!

no title

Maybe Dr. Walter Palmer is just as bad as we all think.

He claimed ignorance over the legality of hunting and killing Cecil the Lion, but it's tough to give him the benefit of the doubt when new information like this keeps coming to light!

On Friday morning, it was revealed that Palmer took place in a hunt several years ago in Wisconsin that illegally took the life of a black bear.

Apparently, Palmer had a permit to hunt a black bear in a specific county in Wisconsin — only he ended up shooting and killing the animal more than 40 miles away in another county.

And when his hunting guides called him on it, Palmer attempted to buy them off, offering $20,000 to lie and say the bear was shot in a legal area. The guides didn't buy it, and they turned him in to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, who promptly handed down a fine and felony probation to the dentist.

And now, we've got the pictures of Palmer's illegal bear hunt. Check out the disturbing pics (below) but be warned — they are graphic:

no title

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.

[ Video: Jimmy Kimmel Gets Choked Up Talking About Cecil The Lion! ]

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:
