Conservationists slam American dentist over brutal killing of Cecil the lion

HARARE, July 31 -- Conservationists in Zimbabwe have sharply criticized the killing of one of Zimbabwe's oldest and best known lion by an American dentist on trophy hunting early this month.

They said the poaching of 13-year old Cecil the lion, with its iconic black mane symbolizing power and strength, was a major drawback to Zimbabwe's conservation and safari industry in particular. Many foreign tourists came to Hwange, home to around 350 African lions, to be amazed by roaming black-maned male lions like Cecil.

The lion, now at an advance age as life expectancy of wild lions averages 14 years, caused an international outcry partly because it was collared as part of a decade-old study by Oxford University to examine the impact of trophy hunting on ecology and better understand the human-animal conflicts.

Cecil the Lion's Death Prompts Social Media Outcry

In the wake of the killing of one of Zimbabwe's most popular protected animals, a social media explosion has forced the situation into the international spotlight.

Two Zimbabwean suspects already have appeared in court in the country after being accused of luring Cecil the lion out of his protected zone so an American dentist -- Walter James Palmer -- could kill him. Palmer, who lives in a Minneapolis suburb, has said he was not aware Cecil was being studied by an Oxford University research program or that he was a "local favorite" at the time of the hunt. Authorities in Zimbabwe reportedly said Palmer was being sought on poaching charges.

Palmer allegedly paid $50,000 to hunt the lion. He is believed to have shot and wounded it with a crossbow, before finding it 40 hours later and killing it with a gun.
