Cecil the lion’s killer in hiding as global anger reaches Minnesota hometown

The American hunter unmasked yesterday as the killer of Cecil the lion has gone into hiding as the angry response spread across the internet and to Walter Palmer’s Minnesota hometown.

On the practice door of Dr Palmer’s dental surgery in Bloomington, Minnesota, a protestor has fixed a flysheet with a picture of a beaming Dr Palmer and another hunter behind the body of a dead lion.

“Dr Walt Palmer – doesn’t he look proud of himself?, the flysheet read, before describing the demise of the “beloved Cecil”.

Cecil and date

Cecil and date. RIP.

  • Tom Forsythe

    Has Planned Parenthood worked out a price for Cecil’s organs? That is the only way the MSM will cover that other story.

    • Ha!

    • Exile1981

      yes but the Chinese medicine market offered a better price.

    • terrence

      No, But did you hear the Planned Parenthood executive say that a Lamborghini costs an arm and a leg?

    • occupant 9

      Dr Palmer’s timing is off by a 150 years. Back then they shot lions and saved babies.

      The Media Party knows how abhorent the Planned “Parenthood” revelations are and how powerful the reality that their ghoulish ideology, actions and practices reveal how PP is just an infant abatoir. That might clue people into this abomination and how it is core to the Left. That it is core to the Left is why it receives scant to nil coverage; the Left cannot tell the truth to the point that they cannot tell from the truth.

      Today, through the sophistication of Leftist ethics and morality, our society, factory-style, will coach the mother to allow for the murder of the most vulnerable humans and sell the parts a la carte. Of course the mother is never told this; it’s PP’s little very, very black secret.

      The Media Party must be breathing a huge sigh of relief that the lion was shot.

      • How sad the moral devolution of the post-modern West is.

        Wedding cakes are far more important than people chucked from roofs and dead lions are more important than eviscerated babies sold for profit.

    • Oh, SNAP!

  • kkruger71

    And internet slactivism claims another person.
    This guy might be a P.O.S., but I do wonder how long before one of these SJW targets gets murdered.

  • Icebow

    May he never touch client teeth again. He deserves a crossbow bolt to the fork. The lion lived on for two days before being killed.

    • African

      This American doctor deserves to be taken back to Africa and be thrown to some hungry caged African lions.

  • Alain

    This is just more brain-dead idiots totally disconnected from nature, reality and the real world. If they are so concerned, then let them go offer themselves to lions as food. The lion in question was close to the end of his natural life, and would have met a much more horrible death at nature’s hand, but facts and truth must never be considered when you operate solely on uninformed emotions rather than reason.

    • guns of august

      No he wasn’t you idiot, he was actually still quite active

    • CoolTolerance

      There were two reproducing males in that pride. And Cecil would team up with the younger one to protect the pride. Now, what will happen is the younger one will either be killed by a more powerful male or manage to flee. And all the cubs will be killed also by the new male. All in all, a very sad story.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Lion hunting is legal, so I don’t fault the poor dentist.
    I’m pretty sure he didn’t instruct his guides to “go get that famous lion everyone loves”.
    His bad luck, but a lesson to game hunters everywhere is to know your guide and hope he’s not a scumbag that’s going to make you an accessory to poaching.
    I hope he gets to keep the head and skin, but fat chance of that after all this SJW outrage.

    • jayme

      Yes but there are some reports this was an illegal hunt.

      • Exile1981

        And some reports that they had a permit but that the government official pocketed the money and claimed to not have issued a permit.

        • andycanuck

          Or his native guides lied to him about having cleared everything for the hunt but they didn’t and/or were just @ssholes off the street and not qualified guides.

          • Exile1981

            Possible but even the original telegraph article outing the doctor said the guide was reputable and had 14 years running legal hunts in the area. If the guide was illicit they would not have reported the collar, they would have told the doctor they would report it and then buried it in the woods.

    • CoolTolerance

      He wasn’t allowed to hunt in the reserve park. So what he did is lure the lion out of the reserve park. This guy has a history of poaching and this is exactly what he did to Cecil. He also kills leopards which are endangered, I believe.
      What really gets me is the poor lion lived on for a full 40 hours while being tracked by the cowardly dentist.
      Estimated number of lions left in the wild: 30,000 and we all know there are more females than males. Naturally, the entire pride will suffer from this and all the cubs will be killed by another male.
      The dentist knew full well what he was doing.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Was he hunting in a reserve park? It doesn’t not sound like he was.
        The story says the animal was killed outside the reserve area.
        And just where does it say the dentist has ANY history of “poaching”?

        So you are pissed off the lion lived for 10-hours after being shot?
        I agree, he should have used a larger caliber weapon for such an animal.

        • CoolTolerance

          No he wasn’t in the reserve because he knew he wasn’t allowed to kill the lions living in the reserve. So, he stationed himself just outside the reserve to lure the lion. It’s called a reserve for a reason.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Yeah, and they are called “hunts” for a reason too.
            Blame the guides, not the hunter.

            Do you know the unmarked boundaries of African game reserves?
            That’s the guide’s job.

            This guy paid a lot of money and was essentially defrauded by the local scumbags.
            Hate them, unless you just hate all hunters.

          • Exile1981

            I looked up the rules on line and it says that to hunt with bow over there you have to hang meat in a tree and wait for a line to come to you. So all this about luring the lion to them is BS; if they had done it another way that would have been illegal. The telegraph is trying to make it seem like it was a shady baiting hunt when that is the only way allowed. Just like they reference some conservationist who says poachers prefer bow as it’s quite. If you read up on the doctor you’ll see he in articles dating 10 years ago has said he never hunts with a gun as the bow is more challenging. So the side comment is to claim he was up to no good when it’s also the type of permit he had.

          • CoolTolerance

            Yeah, but not in protected preserves. In rugged areas, yes, they are allowed according to animal quotas per species. This is why the Zimbabwe government is stating he acted illegally.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            The Zimbabwe government also employs death squads to steal white farmer’s lands, and yet you believe them because you are a fuckwit.

          • El Martyachi

            That’s my biggest problem with this guy, really (the hunter). And by that I mean that he’d choose Zimbabwe. If you’re gonna hunt lions there are better places to do it. Kenya or Tanzania would be saner choices. He can’t be that stupid, because he’s a dentist, so he’s obviously a dick. But the story attention is way way out of proportion to his dickishness.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I don’t even know that.
            Maybe a lion was the last on his list of God’s creatures that needed ventilating and his wife was bagging on his ass to economize.
            I have no idea, other than I bet hunting lions in Zimbabwe is the cheapest way to do.
            Kind of like going to a Tijuana dentist. You don’t go ’cause they are good, you go ’cause they are cheap.

          • El Martyachi

            Ok, if it was you, would you do it in Zimbabwe?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Oh hell no!
            Then again, I tend to stay out of Tijuana, and that place makes TJ look like Toronto by comparison.

          • El Martyachi

            I suggest this could be because you are less of a dick than that guy.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I don’t know; I bet there are tons of people in this thread that think I’m just as big of a one. 🙂
            Sure, he might be a dick, or he can’t tell one African country from another, or he has a broken risk/reward meter.
            Hard to say.
            If he is a dick, for real, that will come out very soon. Until then, I’ll reserve judgment.

          • El Martyachi

            What’s the internet for if not porn and snap baseless judgments?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Hell if I know, but that’s enough to keep me “suiting up and showing up”.

          • El Martyachi

            And gentlemen’s bet.. he’s a dick.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I’ll give you 5 to 8 odds that you are right.

          • El Martyachi

            Normally this is when I’d wager right of first night with certain under-retirement age, non-Asian, female BCF moderators, but since it’s a gentleman’s bet that’s out of the question.

          • Exile1981

            There seems to be some disagreement about if that area was valid or not. the guide claims they had a permit for there and the police said they did but it was not a “registered” permit which suggests the gov’t issuing agency pocketed money. Now the newer gov’t minister press release suggests they were acting totally illegally.
            At this point I’m willing to bet we will never know the truth on this one.

          • CoolTolerance

            I don’t hate hunters. If anything, the only meat I eat is deer, bison and wapiti. The deer is given to me by two hunter friends.
            I’m sorry but this guy knew he was illegal when he positioned himself just outside the protected preserve to lure a protected lion, and then shot the protected lion that came out of the protected preserve. This is a seasoned hunter. And lions in preserves are not on the permitted hunting list since the idea is to protect them. In rugged areas, yes, it is allowed.
            Go take a look at the Zimbabwe hunting regulations and permits.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Zimbabwe is a lawless cespit of human depravity, they have no fucking laws you idiot. The government there murders white farmers and while their wives are forced to watch, and they take turns raping them, and then when that’s not fun any more, they hack the women’s limbs off and let them bleed to death.
            The rest of what you said is a goddamn lie too, so fuck off.

            Your opinion carries no weight here because you are a prevaricating liar.
            There is no way you have ANY friends, let along any that hunt.

          In 2006 the dentist shot a bear. The records say he claimed to have killed in in one area but was actual a mile from that spot. They fined him for false information but let him keep the bear as the judge felt he was not deliberately poaching but confused about where he had been.

        • pettifog

          He had been previously convicted of hunting related offence.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Stop coaching your words in an attempt to mislead.
            A ‘hunting related offense’ could range from blowing your guides brains out to not wearing the right color reflective vest.
            He got popped on a technical that was so minor that the judge let him keep his kill.
            They never do that unless they are convinced it was an honest mistake, and it was a minor infraction.

          • pettifog

            What he was convicted of was killing a bear in a restricted zone then falsifying papers to indicate that the bear had been killed in a zone open to hunting. That sounds like poaching to me plus lying to authorities, not wearing the wrong colour vest. It’s hardly a minor offence. It has a five year maximum penalty and, as for keeping his kill, given that he was convicted two years after the episode, I don’t think that anyone would have wanted the kill returned.

            Turns out a secretary claimed he harassed her and she asked him to stop and later she tried to sue him so he fired her and then she claimed he fired her over the harassment. The evidence is sealed but he paid 127K to settle it and the judge said the fine does not show guilt. He only ever was charged with wrongful dismissal not sexual harassment.

            As an added note the gov’t of Zimbabwe is now claiming the doctor bribed an official to get permission to hunt cecil specifically and that they are searching for the doctor… but they still didn’t ask for extradition.

      Turns out he paid for a permit and has one but the government over there claims they never issued any permit. So either the gov’t guy pocketed the money which is fairly common or the dentist lied or the guide company he got the permit through sold him a fake permit.

    • L.S.

      It may be legal , but any idiot that participates is a dysfunctional example of a male trying to overcompensate for his self doubts. Think of the good he could have done with his money rather than killing beautiful animals.

          You can look at Leroy’s disquis profile and find out he has 22 posts in the last 18 months. Half in the last hour on this topic.

          On a side note the CBC is reporting a completely different version of the events than what the telegraph is claiming.
          telegraph says they had a permit but it was never legally issued. CBC says no permit at all.

          Telegraph says they used a bow to kill it and dispatched it 6-8 hours later; CBC says crossbow to shoot it and then left it suffering for 40 hours then shot it with a gun. – note doctor does not own gun and is known as a bow not crossbow hunter.

          Telegraph says they hung the dead critter as bait from a tree and shot lion from hiding in a tree near by. CBC claims the bait was dragged behind a car travelling through the forest (off road) and they shot it from the car with a crossbow.

          telegraph says the guide reported the collar that day and no charges where laid until the SWJ got their panties in a knot. the CBC claims the group tried to smash the colar and buried it in the woods.

          Telegraph claims the lions carcass was turned over to authorities after the hunt. CBC claims hikers out for a stroll through lion infested woods found the lions body sans head and skin.

          Those two stories are so conflicting it’s almost like two different unrelated stories. Now the telegraph used the local police (who investigated and are the ones who the guide reported the kill to) – which was released before the SJW outrage hit epic snit fit levels as a source for info; and the CBC used the federal minister’s press briefing (which came out after the SJW outrage)

    trophy hunting, is just bad form, especially with an at risk species like this.

    Christians being murdered by the thousands by ISIS but this is the biggest concern of the progressives.

    • It is a willful deflection from crushed babies as well.

  • OK everyone the ad hominem attacks end now.

    I realize this is a contentious issue but save your powder for the lefties.

    It does us no good to rip each other apart.

    Thank you.

      Without the ad hominem attacks, how are we supposed to get this thread over a hundred?

      • Sigh….

        Having another lefty bruce jenner type wander in and comment might do it.

  • Mark van der Wal

    One thing this story does tell us is a old meaning of the word pride.

    come on, if Cecil could do it , it would have eaten you and all your beloved ones

  • david selvers

    No wonder the uncivilized world looks at us as weaklings…..being a hunter I have no problem killing game that I would eat. I don’t eat carnivores therefore I don’t shoot carnivores with the exception of bear, even Polar Bear…..however, this guy, for as educated as he is or thinks he is, should have been aware of the fact that corruption is almost inherent in this culture. 55,000 dollars will persuade a lot of people in that part of the world…..this guy got set up and was too stupid to see it coming. I still would not have killed the lion….for sport. BUT PEOPLE ARE MAKING FOOLS OF THEMSELVES OVER THIS.

    His mistake was that he should have taken her unborn PRIDE and crushed their heads or taken the body parts to sell to vets and Hospitals.
    PETA , NOW and GLAAD along with Hillary would have supported him for that and NOT shooting it.

    Once you know the brains in Liberals it all make sense why GLAAD and NOW are silent on islamic barbarism to flog women and toss gays from roof tops.
