Cecil

I don't think much of hunting and hunters.  It's one thing to be starving and have to hunt game, but it's another to kill animals to satiate one's gluttony or satisfy one's bloodlust.  This dentist who killed Cecil is a pathetic excuse for a human being.  Here's how the "ace" shot killed Cecil--

Palmer is in the public crosshairs after the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said Cecil the lion was lured out of an animal sanctuary in Zimbabwe and shot with a crossbow. But his death wasn't immediate. Cecil lived another 40 hours until the hunters tracked him down and shot him with a gun. He was then skinned and beheaded. The hunters also tried to destroy the GPS collar that Cecil was wearing as part of research backed by Oxford University, the conservation group said.

I always thought that if one cannot get a clean kill then do not shoot, period.  Ace bow hunter, my ass!  He wanted to lion's blood regardless of the collar.  He paid $50,000 to obtain a lion's death, pelt and head.  That's sick.  May his practice wither and may he suffer a year for every hour that Cecil took to finally die.  

Oh, it's a bit overboard but  PETA want the dentist strung up.
