US Dentist Sought by Zimbabwean Police in Connection With Shooting of Beloved (Protected) Lion
— Ace

The lion, named Cecil, lived in a protected state park.

The dentist, for his part, says he paid local guides to find a lion for him, and relied upon them to know where they were, and what laws applied, and what lion they had actually found.

It's a mess.

Cecil, who was 13, was a prized lion in Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park, where visitors reportedly sighted him frequently. A video of the animal, regal, indifferent and sleepy-eyed, has been widely disseminated.

He was a participant in a study that Oxford University in Britain was conducting, and he had been outfitted with a GPS collar.

A police official in Zimbabwe said that two Zimbabweans had been arrested in the case and that police were looking for Palmer.

The Zimbabwean guides were arrested but have been freed on bail.

I'm sure this will shock you -- the dentist is now being hunted by internet vigilantes, despite the fact that we don't know yet if his claims of innocent intent are true or not.

Two signs posted on the door of a nondescript dental office here asked passers-by to mourn the death of Cecil, a lion who was lured off his sanctuary and killed during a game hunt this month in Zimbabwe.

"WE ARE CECIL," one read; "#CatLivesMatter," read another. Nearby was a sign with a darker message for the dentist who said he killed the cat: "ROT IN HELL."

In the hours since Dr. Walter J. Palmer apologized for killing the lion, he has gone from a dentist and longtime hunting enthusiast to a villain at the center of a firestorm over the ethics of big-game trophy hunting.

...

The outrage and attention surrounding the lion’s death online caused Dr. Palmer to keep his office closed on Wednesday as he joined an ever-expanding group of people who have become targets of Internet vigilantism, facing a seemingly endless shaming until the next issue comes along.

Frequently outraged hysteric Mia Farrow of course had to tweet the man's home address, an action that even Salon has criticized. (No link; you can google if you like.)

She wasn't the only hysterical actress tweeting his personal information, either.

1 He paid something like $50,000 for a permit to hunt a lion. If you're paying that amount of money, you expect the guides to know what the ckuf they're doing. I'm thinking the dentist isn't the problem here.

23 Sorry, but unless he was going to eat the lion he shouldn't have killed it.  Guy's a douche bag with a small dick.  He should have spent the 50 grand on a sports car if he wanted to advertise his issue with the small dick .  It is sad however how much play this is getting and the dismemberment of little babies isn't.

39 He paid something like $50,000 for a permit to hunt a lion. If you're paying that amount of money, you expect the guides to know what the ckuf they're doing. I'm thinking the dentist isn't the problem here. The problem is that they pulled off his GPS collar so he would have known something was up at that point. But I suspect that he didn't have enough knowledge to bait the lion and lure him out of the preserve. As racist as Mugabe is, big game hunting is big money and they would have every incentive to punish the guides and give the dentist a slap on the wrist.

Posted by: AmishDude at July 30, 2015 07:09 AM (b65cm)

40 I wonder how many other lions, tigers, rhinos, and other endangered animals have been poached since Cecil was killed. Of course those probably weren't killed by a white guy and the people doing it are 100% guaranteed to know they are breaking the law.

44 The dentist, Walt Palmer, had previously lied to feds about where he had killed a bear. I don't think he's the most ethical hunter out there. Also, they baited the lion to get it out of the park, where it was protected. I highly doubt that he was not aware of this.

45 23, I agree. There is something distasteful about rich assholes paying 50 grand just so they can have a huge trophy to show people. Still, perspective. This story will crowd out coverage of other stories, including the sale of baby parts by ghouls.

57 These animal rights activists have always struck me as hypocrites. If a person claimed to be outraged if someone were murdered by a red haired person, but not if they were murdered by a brown haired person, you might suspect that they hate red haired people and don't give a crap about the life of the victim, or moral principles. Animal rights activists are perfectly ok with animals killing and eating each other in large quantities. They'd never change that or interfere with that. But take one human hunter who kills one animal quickly, and they freak out as if a human being were murdered. Hypocrites. They just want an excuse to vent their hatred of their fellow human beings. Until one of these clowns can explain this, I just can't take them seriously.

But you know in the big scheme of things where babies are being live born, crushed, and chopped up for parts to sell... not much of a concern. This has been one of the most consistently horrific themes in sci fi for over a century, the use of babies to keep older people alive and healthy. Its one of the worst nightmares imaginable. And yet, people are shrugging at it and screaming about a freaking lion. We deserve what we're going to get.

86 "Are you saying that all this noise is about a dead lion? Lions are killed all the time in this country," said Tryphina Kaseke, a used-clothes hawker on the streets of Harare. "What is so special about this one?" Heh. All the articles made Cecil out to be, basically, the Zimbabwean mascot, as if he posed for the new flag or something. Cecil was 13. Life expectancy for a lion is 10-14 years. Roughly, he was 91 in human terms.

Interesting how much of the ignorant, narrow-minded, emotionally-driven bigotry now essentially running and ruining the country is shared by "conservative" types. 

 

Well, not interesting, so much as pathetic and predictable.

 

Meanwhile, why do people have guns?  What, do they have small packages?  Compensation much?  Aren't the piles of bodies, finally, enough for the insecure gun nuts?

 

(oh, and the complete ignorance and lack of perspective on Zimbabwe, African game preservation, and hunting are nice touches, too)

97 23 Sorry, but unless he was going to eat the lion he shouldn't have killed it. Guy's a douche bag with a small dick. He should have spent the 50 grand on a sports car if he wanted to advertise his issue with the small dick . It is sad however how much play this is getting and the dismemberment of little babies isn't. Posted by: Jaimo at July 30, 2015 12:05 PM (9U1OG) You do know that a lot of this was covered before when someone else went and killed a lion. Of course that was a woman that did it. So oops, you can't go all "Small dick" about her. And the lions that are chosen are dangers to people or a tribes livelihood, so the lion is going to be killed anyway. And the meat gets donated to local tribes. Now in this case, someone or all of them broke the laws so those that are most responsible need to be held accountable.

Second favorite revolver I bought from a former Top Gun instructor/pilot who had very expensive (left-handed) custom big-game rifles for his Africa hunts.  Oh, and he wasn't the sort to do baited, illegal "hunts" - more like dangerous game like Cape Buffalo, with all the restrictions that apply, in countries with some rule of law WRT game-hunting (hint:  not Zimbabwe).

 

But now I've finally figured out that this guy merely suffers from small body parts.  One can learn a lot from the Horde, gotta admit. 

 

Funny, I don't care for hunting of any sort, but curiously it never occurs to me to do idiot psychoanalysis on strangers I know nothing about to make me more comfortable with my distaste.  Funny.

The only difference between socialist governments is exactly what they have shortages of, but without exception they have shortages of something. And gluts of something else. The GUM department store in Moscow (a year or two before the USSR's collapse) had squat, except for one stall that had walls full of ... red plastic buckets (think kids on the beach). Hundreds and hundreds of them. Why, I do not know. But everything else was in short supply, except for empty shelving.

Virtually none of the countries in Africa have money to fund their wildlife resource management nor do they have enough to keep enough rangers, police officials , etc. to stop the poaching that is the actual extinction pressure exerted on Africa's endangered species. I mentioned on an earlier thread that a couple of years ago, one of the countries in Africa auctioned off a white rhino license as part of the managment of a particular wildlife area...the license brought $150,000. The state of Michigan does the EXACT same thing, just as other states do. The state has a managed elk herd just north of Gaylord, and the area can only support so many animals. They also want to manage the number of bull elk, vs. cows, etc. A resident can enter a lottery drawing to win a license. If chosen, pay the $$ fee and then go on the very managed hunt. You are told where, when, and who you are going with, and you are expected to take an animal. As was mentioned, you won't find too many ordinary Zimbabwean's crying over Cecil... By the way, Cecil was being radio tracked because they wanted to learn more about male lion's range..Cecil was the dominant male lion because two other dominant lions had fought to the death, one dying in the fight and one dying later. Male lions also routinely kill cubs, the females need to hide their cubs from rival males. Such sweet cute animals, thank you Disney for the skewed views of what wildlife is really like.

Selling big game hunting permits to rich assholes is actually beneficial for those animals.  The animals become a source of income to locals, who then have an economic incentive to protect those critters.

 

If you forbid hunting, those animals have no economic value to locals and they are decimated by poachers.

291 Just an interesting note...Cecil was felled with an arrow initially, not a gun. Posted by: Amish --------------- Yeah, and I have a real problem with that. I find trophy hunting distasteful, but I can at least accept a clean kill. The likelihood of a clean kill of a mature male lion with an arrow is about zero, *in my estimation*. This guy wanted to not merely collect a trophy, he wanted to be able to brag that he stalked and killed it with a bow and arrow. The guy deserves derision, if not disgust. Maybe the guides set him up, but the guy himself has an ego problem, and I grieve for the suffering of the animal. I wish I could say that I've never had to deal with a mortally wounded, suffering animal, but I have. Any decent man would make an effort to avoid that circumstance, rather than increase the likelihood. In days of yore, they carried Nitro Express rifles for a reason.

292 Hunting the lion equivalent of a senior citizen probably wasn't much fun. Also more dangerous, as older predators tend to be more likely to hunt men as they can't chase down their normal prey anymore.

  Male lions also routinely kill cubs, the females need to hide their cubs from rival males.

 

I'm a big fan of Big Cat Diary, in which three presenters follow individual families of lion, jaguar, and cheetah.  (One of them is Saba Douglas-Hamilton, hubba hubba).

 

They get personally attached to the critters but they don't intervene.  If a male lion can take over a pride he kills all the cubs so that the females come into heat and he can produce his own offspring.

304 I don't care for low-rent trophy hunters - driving around in a jeep, using bait, dogs, etc... to do your "stalking" and all you do is the shooting and the guides are practically holding the rifle.  If you're trekking in the bush, stalking on your own, it's a different thing, but most guys are doing nothing but being driven within rifle range to take a shot at an animal - fish in a barrel style.

That said, if the animal isn't endangered, you're talking about essentially a property offense - waste, not murder.  The Disney/Sierra Club generation anthropomorphizes animals to the point that they consider any hunting homicide.  Hollywood types love them some infanticide but don't you dare shoot Simba, Bambi, etc...  Another example of their culturally pathological Other-worship.

Saw a documentary a while back about a female lion and her three cubs. She would hide the cubs during the day to keep the male lions from finding them. Had a huge rainstorm come up, cubs left their hiding place, one almost drowned, etc. Most disturbing part of this documentary was the younger male lion found one of the cubs and proceeded to bat it around until he killed it. Picture your cat at home with a paper wad, only the paper wad was a living kitten. Folks making the documentary talked about how hard it is not to interfere when filming, they wanted to save the cubs....

320 If an animal shelter aborted kittens and puppies to help with "population control" and waited until the fetuses were big enough to harvest "tissue" for "research", it would be all over the news. The pressitute would be tripping over itself digging for more information to report. Twitter and face book would explode about it. I wonder if you took PP and changed it to an animal shelters and the "product of conception" to unborn kittens and puppies, how fast the story would spread. Maybe someone should make fake videos exactly like the PP one except put it into the context of animals, wait until everyone was outraged then drop the fact that this was actually PP. The take away from this is human life is worth less than an animals life, in the eyes of the leftist.

Butch's comments up above should be read by those noble souls here who have not the slightest idea what the actual situation is in Africa with game animals.  There's all kinds of tourism involving preserves and wildlife, most of them not involving hunting, but the hunting part is both financially important AND an integral part of game management.

 

Which is vital, in places where poaching/self-defense/freelancing by locals are serious issues, and management of the whole situation keeps these conflicts at bay or to a minimum.

 

And misbehavior by hunters, their guides, or the preserve management happens (there and here), because humans.  And in a place like Zimbabwe it's much worse because the destruction of the country and its economy by the insane regime. 

 

But hey, substituting personal tastes and idiotic pop psychology on strangers and weaponizing one's bigotries and ignorance are much more popular than actually becoming informed and thinking - esp. when there is moral narcissism to be had.  Hey look, it's working wonders right here in the US for rule of law, race relations, economics, individual liberty, and foreign policy!

347 95% of people who support "animal rights" are misanthropes.  The environmental movement in general is a cult of human misery and death, that considers us a pathogen infecting Mother Gaia and harming her noble non-reasoning creatures.  Anti-human, anti-reason, usually godless - having replaced the Devil with Man.  In terms of "spirituality" (as it "I'm not religious I'm spiritual") most people seem to need a Devil more than they need a God.

He should have spent the 50 grand on a sports car if he wanted to advertise his issue with the small dick .

Posted by: Jaimo at July 30, 2015 12:05 PM (9U1OG) Yeah, he's a douche, but even a douche should not be in danger of being murdered and have his life ruined forever because he shot a lion. Some people have lost all sense of perspective. It's like they think the lion is like - or superior - human beings. Cecil the lovable lion tore apart the cubs of rival males when he became head of the pride. If he had not been shot, he would have ended his days getting his entrails ripped out by a younger alpha male lion. Do the people sobbing over this realize that animals in the wild do not end their days playing shuffleboard, collecting Social Security and telling the young uns to get off their lawn? They're killed and eaten and in the case of lions, they're killed by their own species - perhaps their own offspring. So tired of this Timmy Treadwell sentimentalizing of wild animals by adults who think nature is like a Disney cartoon.

"Are you saying that all this noise is about a dead lion? Lions are killed all the time in this country," said Tryphina Kaseke, a used-clothes hawker on the streets of Harare. "What is so special about this one?" . . . "Why are the Americans more concerned than us?" said Joseph Mabuwa, a 33-year-old father-of-two cleaning his car in the center of the capital.

I despise this modern Internet Mob idea that we need to have an opinion on every single incident and mete out "justice".   

There's an arrogance in putting oneself in the role of Judge with Universal Jurisdiction, where no case is too small for one's Honorable Self to Opine on.  

There is less scrutiny on illegal aliens murdering and raping American citizens than on a wild animal on a different continent.   All of this moralizing on how horrible this dentist as an individual person is just feeding that system.

380 >>> Sorry, but unless he was going to eat the lion he shouldn't have killed it.

I read somewhere he donates the meat from his kills to the local people. There is a pic of him bagging a rhino; the meat from that rhino went to feed the people at a local village. So even if it's not him other people are eating the meat.

And legal animal game hunting has actually saved more animals than killed them; the locals view the animals as financial assets, not food or pests.

Still think letting an animal suffer 40 hours before you kill it is beyond the pale though. As is baiting an animal out of its preserve. But I think that is on the hunter and landowner he hired and possibly not on him.

So even if it's not him other people are eating the meat. That seems to be the case with all this big game "trophy" hunting in Africa. You pay a shit load of money that helps the local economy and also wildlife preserves, and the meat is donated to locals. The number of people that can't figure this out here is just pathetic. Now in this case there seems to be quite a few laws being broken and those that did it need to be prosecuted. But whether this guy had any knowledge his guides were breaking the laws or if it was all on the guides I figure that they will skate and he will receive all the punishment. Far too many people though are using this instance to demonize all hunters that go there and do follow the laws concerning hunting.

414 Yes. Saw a documentary a while back about a female lion and her three cubs. She would hide the cubs during the day to keep the male lions from finding them. Had a huge rainstorm come up, cubs left their hiding place, one almost drowned, etc. Most disturbing part of this documentary was the younger male lion found one of the cubs and proceeded to bat it around until he killed it. Picture your cat at home with a paper wad, only the paper wad was a living kitten. Folks making the documentary talked about how hard it is not to interfere when filming, they wanted to save the cubs....

Glad to see you posting, haven't seen your nic for a while. 2. The descriptions almost always sound the same. No matter where you go. I can understand why PP puts up such an objection to meeting minimum facilities standards.

423 "A 22-year-old American woman has been mauled to death and another person seriously injured after being pulled through their car window by a lion in a safari park in South Africa." This was kind of a Darwin thing. They were told to keep the windows closed while in the park. Didn't follow instructions.

425 "A 22-year-old American woman has been mauled to death and another person seriously injured after being pulled through their car window by a lion in a safari park in South Africa." Being the apex predator of the planet does not exempt us from Darwinian pressure. The "let's roll down the window and pet the lion" genes weren't a winner after all.

426 Also, the left sees the oh sooo cuute widdiw wion!  Look at his awesome mane and how he nuzzles his mommy awwww!

Then when it comes to babies..

"Nah I don't need that fuckin burden.."  "I gots to keep gettin me some dick"

Wouldn't want to be PUNISHED with a child yes?

They don't actually see the miracle they are throwing in the trash can.  They (maybe) see a "blob" on a screen if they even have the guts to look in the eyes of their own to see what they are doing.

It's ALL about THEM when it comes to their babies.

If it's not all cute and furry and cuddly wuddly then "fuck that thing"

428 To extend on Chique's point, the FBI has 140 pending cases of contract killings in the USA alone: human beings hired to murder someone else. Not news, no outrage, nothing on twitter. For some, its a good way to distract from Planned Parenthood videos. A huge maned squirrel. For others, its the mindless "awww its cute" response that makes them terribly upset a lion was killed. This justifies a "what a dick" response, not screaming, tooth-gnashing outrage and ocean of anger.

432 Posted by: Village Idiot's Apprentice at July 30, 2015 01:24 PM (VPLuQ) Haven't posted much lately. Still lurk though. Mrs Timon and I were looking at a house across the street from the baby killer's house back in 2007. When I told my wife who lived in the house she said "time to leave. There is no way I can look at a baby killer's house every time I walk out the door." The real estate agent was obviously not too happy. He called me later that day and said "Good news Timon, the doctor died late last year." The wife was still not interested.

434 I remember reading the book Walter the Wathog when I was a wee thing and super into animal conservation. About a wild hog. No doubt one of the researchers or preserve people will write a similar book on Cecil. And no doubt that if promoted right and if the story survives the squirrel mode of our current culture, it will make a bazillion dollars.

438 Buck Sexton noted that the only thing that caused this story to bubble up is that the lion was named "Cecil."  If the story was just that a rich guy went on safari and shot a lion then you never would have heard about.

We've had it too good for too long and progressives have a sclerotic hypothalamus that overreacts to really irrational things, like Cecil or too much foam on their latte.

439 Conservatives show their evil side by cheering on the cowardly dentist who killed Cecil the lion. Before you start with the Planned parenthood crap, you are no different than them. You only oppose abortion in the case of white babies. You cheer the death of non white babies. Conservatives are evil.

452 324 If an animal shelter aborted kittens and puppies to help with "population control" and waited until the fetuses were big enough to harvest "tissue" for "research", it would be all over the news.

457 As Rush pointed out, there would be virtually no lions in existence in Africa if there wasn't a trophy hunting business. The locals would prefer to just kill 'em all and not risk their kids being Planned Parenthood-ed by the things.

458 404 For a while I was reading about elephants killing people I like elephants and support the efforts to rescue them. But I really dont need to see them close up. People were getting killed right and left. One woman with her baby on her back went for a walk in this preserve and the elephant killed her and tossed the baby far away killing her, too. Some hotshot dean of UC med school also got killed about 2 years ago. Also killings by elephants in SE Asia. They are not harmless creatures.

Not to mention all the hoopla about "Orcas have never been known to harm a human being."  What, the killings of humans at Sea World or wherever were just hazings that got out of hand? 

Besides, we don't know that orcas -- killer whales, to give them their old name -- haven't ever killed people.  They may not; or they may have only done it when there was NO chance of being caught.  Either way, it's proof of intelligence.

The thing is that we can, collectively, wrap our heads around a rich douchebag who wants to shoot the equivalent of the neighbor's sleepy persian. He's an asshole, a bad apple, a one-off piece of shit. He should be shamed and we should all, as a society, point at him and go, "Bad. Bad!" On the other hand, we are a society that trafficks in the sale of body parts of murdered infants. We are a society that trafficks in the sale of body parts of murdered infants. We are a society that trafficks in the sale of body part of murdered infants. Who do we point at? Who do we shame? It's so fucking evil that.... I dunno I can't wrap my head around it. I just can't.

460 97 Buzz - Well I do remember that broad who killed all those animals, I was pissed about her too.  I don't remember her luring an animal out of a protected sanctuary, shine a light in it's eyes and then shoot it with a bow and arrow and wound it, then chase it for 40 hours before finally killing it.  Apparently the stupid bitch was a better shot than the small dicked dentist.  For the record, I was pissed about both but do understand when a herd needs to be culled and the money goes to these poor countries.  This incident by dear small dicked dentist was not one of those instances.

462 Way late to the thread, but please don't let this one guy give sport hunting a bad name. The most effective conservationists I've known have also been big hunters and fishermen--for sport. Sport hunting and fishing supports rural economies all over the country, and it pays for most of the wildlife conservation that gets done in this country and others. In Africa, the country that banned sport hunting (Kenya) now has less wildlife than the countries that host rich big game hunters. If rich guys want to spend their money in a way that helps pay for conserving wildlife, then that's less for others to pay.

468 No. Game tracking collars are not all that visible. First, the poor thing has to wear it so it isn't huge. Second, it is out there in the UV radiation, dirt and blood from the lions dinner all day every day so no matter how brightly colored it started out it quickly becomes the color of dirt. Third, mane. Fourth and foremost, game regulations generally allow the taking of collared animals as the harvest of that animal is a valid statistical point for management of the resource. Fifth, most African game meat goes to feed the poor. For anybody but the local investigator, to claim that the dentist did something illegal is showing ignorance of law. To claim the dentist did something immoral while abiding in a nation that has rejected God seems silly.
