    The guy was apparently a well respected dentist, a good family man and obviously had money. But hunting, not for survival, but for the sheer thrill of mounting an animal's head above your fireplace is totally asinine and unforgivable.

    I understand hunting the occasional deer to provide meat for your family but come on... trophy hunting is so wrong. Guys like dr palmer are so similar to serial killers, at least to me

    Zimbabwe government is fully behind trophy hunting and poaching. They only care about money. Trophy hunters from America pay them well. Poachers from China pay them well too. Its a sick business. Even the locals illegally shoot wildlife inside parks to eat as its cheaper than buying livestock meat.

    June 2015, Dr. Walter J. Palmer, an American Millionaire dentist and recreational game hunter from Minnesota had been convicted for baiting and poaching a bear, reportedly paid US$50,000 to a professional hunter-guide, Theo Bronkhorst, to enable him by baiting Ceil to leave the safety of the Zimbabwe Hwange National Park by an Elephant carcass that laid on a bordering adjacent farm where he was illuminated and blinded by spot lights and shot by arrows from the Millionaire Subhuman Coward Nature Terrorist. Cecil was the National Symbol of Zimbabwe Photograph Safari Tourism and a major attraction at the park had a collar on and was being studied and tracked by the University of Oxford as part of a larger study. Cecil over time became habituated and tolerant of humans and saw them as not being a threat. We the Noble and Righteous of the World will not rest until Walter Palmer and his cohorts Theo Bronkhorst and the farm owner and Honest Ndlovu since Great Wealth Keeps You From Being Punished in Zimbabwe and America for their crime, are eliminated..

      "disgusting, cowardly pondscum" and your solution is to "put him in a cage with a lion without his weapons"?
      and you would "love to hear the screams"? what does that make you?? palmer will never be forgotten, alright. for being as innocent as he is wealthy.

      Many people do. Formulating a generalized opinion like that is never that simple. Many people still have a firm belief in God and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ to help better their lives and make themselves better people all-around.

    You know, yes Trophy hunting is wrong. But what about poaching? Let's say we put a stop to killing all of these beautiful animals. But that doesn't stop the black market in fact poaching would increase. If you compare to the amount of trophy hunting that they have done compare to poaching. Poaching is ten times more. I don't like Trophy hunting I think it's horrible but compare this to poaching...Poaching makes more money compared to Trophy hunting.

      I tell people that when talking about the animal industry. The same people who think killing cecil the lion is wrong, use ''but its legal'' to define morality.
