It was a shot heard around the world; the trophy capturing of Cecil the lion who was hunted and killed by an American dentist from Minnesota, after the lion was lured out of the Hwange National Park in the Gwayi Conservancy the place he had been protected. A statement on Born Free USA's website is asking everyone to put in writing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and urge it to situation the ruling itemizing the lion as threatened. Dr. Palmer owns River Bluff Dental in Minnesota He went to Africa and used a carcass to lure a lion out of a protected park area so he could legally shoot Cecil the lion exterior of the refuge boundaries. None of his different targets had names like Cecil the lion and weren't as nicely-loved by the general public.<br/><br/>Then there's the question of why this dentist first shot the lion with a bow and arrow, which may result in a devious reply. The thirteen-year-previous lion was protected inside a national park and was monitored by a GPS collar, which he was fitted with by Oxford University researchers, who had been monitoring this lion's every transfer. Palmer is accused of bribing his professional safari guides with $fifty five,000 to set this lion up for the kill.<br/><br/>In keeping with Canada Journal on July 29, the dentist has closed his apply and he is notifying his patients in a letter. The letter first states his aspect of the lion killing occasion then goes on to say he will probably be referring his patients to other dentists. Palmer claims he believed the lion was a authorized dentistry kill and didn't find out he was mistaken until he was back home in Minnesota. That doesn't maintain water with numerous people since this dentist had to see the GPS collar on lion when he was eradicating or having the lion's head eliminated.
