The asshole coulda bought him a fancy car, he coulda used the money to help people (charity). He coulda bought him a douchebag diamond ear ring. Instead he does THAT with his money. I'm no hippy about animals but that is straight up POINTLESS killing. Just so you can pose with it and maybe mount the thing at home. He didn't even epically hunt it or anything. They just sit in their car and the guides bring the things to them with 0 effort. They say a child could have shot it. I hope that guy gets what he deserves. Pay to hunt his ass.

7/30 - US Fish & Wildlife Service Investigating Killing Of Cecil The Lion
Dr Walter J Palmer, a dentist from Minneapolis, Minnesota, US, killed the famed lion on July 1 in Zimbabwe
It's believed Cecil the Lion, 13, was lured out of the national park and wounded by an arrow before he was tracked, shot dead with a gun, skinned and beheaded as a hunting trophy
The hunter hunted: American dentist who paid $55,000 to kill Africa's most famous lion goes into hiding and says he 'did nothing wrong' as Zimbabwe police demand to speak to him - Yeah hunt his ass instead.
Zimbabwean charged over killing of Cecil the lion - "The unit also said Cecil's death would be likely to trigger a power struggle in the pride, resulting in the death of other male lions as well as Cecil's offspring."
Palmer's hunting has attracted scrutiny in the past. In 2008, he pleaded guilty to lying to a U.S. wildlife agent about a black bear he killed in Wisconsin two years before.
He was accused of killing it 40 miles outside a permitted zone, hauling the carcass back into the approved area and certifying falsely that it was killed there. He was
sentenced to one year probation and fined $2,938.

|If you're hunting for food and the animal isn't endangered or otherwise protected, I couldn't care less. More respect if you use a bow vs. a firearm.|
But going out and killing big game animals as a sport? To merely display your kill as a trophy to brag to your other sport hunting friends? I just don't get it.

|You know what would actually make you a bad-ass? Going on a wild lion-petting safari. Or even a mission to clip their mane. But shooting from a distance? Pussy.|

|He shot it with a bow and arrow so he was probably pretty close, but he didn't get a good shot and only wounded it.|

|Far worse things for people GAF about. This is one of those stories that has me scratching my head on the outrage.|

|I`m always annoyed by news items like this that get a lot of attention and then you get people saying shit about peoples priorities being messed up because this news item isn`t a big deal compared to X, Y or Z.|
Holy shit, you know people can have issue with multiple different things right? Just because people are showing their outrage over this issue this week, doesn`t mean they don`t care or care less about a bunch of other issues. Jeez.

|hate to disagree with you noss but it absolutely does mean they care about it more than other things.|
time is a finite thing, you choose to spend what you do with your time, and generally people use their time doing things they care about

|It is surprising that nobody has mentioned this yet, but in many cases, a large portion of big game hunting fees go towards preservation of animals, and they often target the older animals.|
What good is it to have an animal preservation if you cannot afford to protect it? Might as well let the old infirm animals be hunted to pay many employees salary.
Example here in the US:
As for the palmer guy, it sounds like he isn't above shooting these he isn't supposed to, and possibly the organizers (from africa) didn't follow the rules, but people getting bent out of shape and wanting to kill him for it are ridiculous. Let the court systems handle the case like it does for everything else.
