Re: The man who killed Cecil the lion is an American dentist

I hope we can stay on topic about Cecil and big game hunting.  This thread means a lot to so many people, including myself.

Yet you specifically named three posters.

As family or friends of this dentist, they are inured to seeing heads on walls, and floors, and shelves, etc.   

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

What sort of laws do we have in place to arrest Mr. Palmer?   If the kill was not on US soil, what can legally be done?

They're animals...we're animals.  But to cause unnecessary pain and fear ......unto death....that is not what we animals are about

I doubt he will be arrested here, or extradited. And if he were charged with anything in our courts what good does it do? He is a dentist with a felony record, paid a settlement to an employee/patient for sexual harassment yet he still practices dentistry. I guess that's how the Dental Board rolls.

I'm a bit confused by your last statement.

 

As for the rest people are venting and when it's an emotionally charged issue there's a tendency to go overboard. That doesn't mean they intend violence.

 

Personally I would rather read people's honest thoughts than lies from the good dentist which were on a Q&A on his website. Pretending to be a decent man by saying he likes to "observe and photograph animals" is nauseating. 


 

Apparently that is an accurate statement just incomplete.  He forgot the part about "after they've been delivered to me to be slaughtered."

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

@Marp Exactly. I do pity the patients who had no idea he did this. I will guess that many must feel terrible.
