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??

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.

Jericho The Lion Now Said To Be On Around The Clock Watch To Guard Against Poachers!

Filed under: ViolenceLionsViral: AnimalsViral: NewsControversy

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.

Cecil the Lion's death will not be in vain.

In the past couple days there has been a ton of international outrage over the death of Cecil The Lion, a beloved big cat that was killed by a U.S. hunter in Zimbabwe.

But it appears Cecil's death wont be in vain, as local officials are saying his bones will be used to create an anti-poaching memorial.

Johnny Rodrigues of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force recently revealed plans to place the memorial in Hwange National Park in hopes of raising awareness about the perils of poaching.

Cecil's body is currently out in the open so vultures and other carnivores can make use of all of the meat before they decide to build the memorial.

We can't wait to see the final result and it's amazing to know that this beautiful creature's death isn't going to waste.
