Why Did An American Dentist Murder Cecil ?

Now his offspring may be killed by a competing male lion. Walter Palmer is a known felon.

This is actually happening all the time with Rhino’s and Elephants. Cecil’s case is especially repugnant because he was a mascot for the Nation, and he was being studied The Oxford University. Now his offspring are likely to be killed by another male lion, to “force” the female lions to mate with him.

In 2000 he was convicted for lying about where he killed a bear. He had received a years probation for that crime.

There are mounting calls for the prosecution of an American dentist who shot dead one of Africa’s most famous lions, as two other men involved in the hunt appeared in court in Zimbabwe to face poaching charges. The American Dentist allegedly paid $55,000 for chance to kill this famous tourist attraction.

Cecil was found headless after being shot with a bow and arrow and tracked for 40 hours. Cecil was the star attraction at the Hwange national park. The lion was found skinned and headless on the outskirts of the park.

The 13-year-old lion was wearing a GPS collar as part of a research project that Oxford University has been running since 1999, making it possible to trace its last movements when it was tricked into leaving the park and shot with a bow and arrow. cecil of zimbabwe The hunters then tracked the dying animal for 40 hours before they killed it with a rifle. They used freshly killed animals as bait to lure Cecil out of the park.

“Cecil’s death is a tragedy, not only because he was a symbol of Zimbabwe but because now we have to give up for dead his six cubs, as a new male won’t allow them to live so as to encourage Cecil’s three females to mate,” said Johnny Rodrigues, head of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force.

“The two people who accompanied the hunter have been arrested but we haven’t yet tracked down the hunter, who is American.” The Zimbabwe Professional Hunters and Guides Association admitted that its members were involved and that the case was being investigated.

It claims it was a private safari and therefore not illegal, but the government insists that the lion lived on the reserve and came under its protection.

The Oxford University study was looking into the impact of sports hunting on lions living in the safari area surrounding the national park. The research found that 34 of 62 tagged lions died during the study period. 24 were shot by sport hunters.

The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said it was concerned for the fate of Cecil’s 12 cubs. “The next lion in the hierarchy, Jericho, will most likely kill all Cecil’s cubs so that he can insert his own bloodline into the females,” the chairman, Johnny Rodrigues, said.
