Cecil the lion, a popular Zimbabwe tourist attraction, was killed this week by Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer during a lion hunt he allegedly spent upwards of $50,000 to join, though Palmer has said he regrets his role in the incident and didn’t realize Cecil was a famous lion when he killed him. What do you think?
“Usually it’s the lions you don’t kill that you end up regretting.”
Zac Dyson • Tractor Curator
“Sounds like an honest mistake. From a distance, that lion probably looked like a total nobody.”
Ruby Long • Contract Performer
“An American dentist paying $50,000 to kill an animal in Africa on a guided tour is simply nature taking its course.”
