The lion, the dentist and the social media mob

Last week, Toronto reached record-high temperatures. The sweltering, suffocating, shirt-sopping heat drove plenty indoors. But even there, many of us found little respite. Because inside - or at least online - it was scorching, with hot take after hot take about the killing of Cecil the celebrity lion turning the Internet into a blast furnace. Inside a volcano. Lined with lit candles spitting solar flares. As the late Rodney Dangerfield would say, "It was hot I tell ya!"

In case you missed it: last week, Cecil, a lion living in and around Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, was lured out of the park, poached, beheaded and skinned. The killer turned out to be a dentist from Minnesota. He swore he was misled, and that he thought the hunt was legal, and that he had no idea Cecil was a famous lion. And, to be fair, pretty much nobody knew that Cecil was a famous lion until last week. Zimbabwean authorities have called for his extradition, so that he may be appropriately charged. The dentist, craven wimp that he is, seems to have disappeared.

Probe into the

killing of Cecil

Deutsche Presse-Agentur

New York

The US Fish and Wildlife Service opened an investigation into the killing of Zimbabwe's beloved lion Cecil after US dentist Walter James Palmer admitted to hunting down the animal, the US federal agency said yesterday.

EDITORIAL: Reverence for human life should outweigh reverence for Cecil

Reverence for life is a good thing, but some people who revere lion life have got their priorities on crooked. Human life is important, too. The Media Research Center observes that the television networks have devoted far more time to the death of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe than to revelations that Planned Parenthood has been dissecting aborted human babies and auctioning the baby parts to the highest bidders here in the United States.

More important than the number of minutes devoted to one story over another is the tone of the coverage. Cecil the lion was a favorite of tourists and the television coverage has been aimed at viewers who gorge on fluff and cotton candy. The Minnesota dentist and big-game hunter who shot Cecil has been depicted as a brutal and lawless killer, as if he hunts small children with his bow and arrow.

Hope for 'brother' Cecil's cubs after' Jericho steps in; AFRICA'S MOST FAMOUS LION: THE AFTERMATH

THESE adorable lion cubs left orphaned and facing death by the merciless slaughter of their majestic father Cecil are playing safely under the watchful eye of his "brother".

The trophy killing by US dentist Walter Palmer had sparked fears that the dozen cubs in Cecil's pride would be killed as a new dominant male took over.

Instead, they are being protected by another male, Jericho, who had formed a lifetime bond with the hunted leader.

People power can end 'sport'

Celebs used their power and social media prowess this week to do good and vilified dentist Walter Palmer who paid more than $50,000 to kill Cecil the endangered African lion with his crossbow.

Knoxville’s dental desert

When kids return to school in just over a week, more of them will have access to dental care.

The Great Schools Partnership is expanding its youth dental program started earlier this year at Green Magnet Academy to its remaining 10 Knox County schools, giving students free dental screenings and follow-ups.

The five-year effort that included collaboration from various organizations including Knox County Health Department, Elgin Children’s Foundation and local dentists is the latest move to fill the gap in access to dental care.

SLAUGHTER IN AFRICA. PLANNED IN SCOTLAND; Highland firm's £60k shooting trips SCOTTISH TOURIST BOARD ATTACKED OVER SUPPORT FOR BIG GAME HUNTER

Scottish tourism chiefs came under fire yesterday for backing a hunter who organises safaris where millionaire clients can shoot a lion for £60,000.

Highlands-based Peter Swales arranges trips to Africa for big game hunters.

But campaigners are angry that the national tourist board VisitScotland promote the 71-year-old's business through a link on their official website.

Animal rights campaigners called for them to cut ties with Swales.

But he yesterday defended his operation, which also organises shooting parties in Scotland, and distanced himself from the illegal killing of Africa's most famous lion by US dentist Walter Palmer.
