Cecil the Lion
This is hard to hear, but Cecil, the beloved lion murdered by a big game hunter in 2015, likely suffered for hours before his death. A new book details the ‘cruelty’ just as Trump okays trophy hunting in the US.
Walter Palmer, the dentist who killed Cecil the Lion in July 2015, will not be charged over the death of Zimbabwe’s most prized animal. Officials say Walter’s hunt was completely legal, but users took to social media to say that there was ‘no justice’ for the murdered lion!
The dentist who hunted down Cecil the Lion will not face any criminal charges for killing the beloved creature. Zimbabwe officials say Walter Palmer, 55, had all the proper paperwork filed for his hunt, clearing him of any wrongdoing. Fans are outraged by this news, claiming Walter’s is getting away with murder! Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll star Elaine Hendrix, 44, is appalled with the decision and tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “This is a massive disappointment for humankind and travesty for animal justice.”
Uh oh! Ashley Benson came under fire Oct. 7 when she asked fans on Instagram to help her decide whether she should go as Cecil The Lion, who was murdered by a dentist for $50,000, for Halloween.
Ashely Benson is trying to put out a major fire. The actress offended her fans when she posted a pic of herself in a lion costume with this caption: “Help! Can’t decide on my Halloween costume this year! What do you guys think of this Cecil The Lion costume? @yandy #thanksyandy #halloweencostume.” That really upset her fans so Ashley, 25, changed her caption and posted a lengthy apology. She claims someone from her management team wrote her caption and that she had no idea it mentioned Cecil, do you believe her?
It’s only August and Halloween is already ruined, thanks to a pair of tasteless costumes. This holiday season, stores will carry outfits of Cecil the Lion’s dentist killer, as well as a Caitlyn Jenner costume. Which of these offensive costumes is worse? Vote here!
Sure, Halloween is no stranger to tasteless outfits. Yet, the costumes of Caitlyn Jenner, 65, and Dr. Walter James Palmer, 55, the dentist who killed Cecil The Lion, seem to top them all. After all the celebration for Caitlyn and all the outrage over Cecil’s killer, these two costumes are early front-runners for The Worst Halloween Costume of the year.
This is just awful. Just days after it was announced that Cecil the Lion had been killed, we’ve learned that his brother, Jericho, was reportedly shot and killed by a hunter in Zimbabwe on Aug. 1.
How horrifying. Jericho the Lion, brother of the late Cecil the Lion, was reportedly killed by a hunter on Aug. 1 in Zimbabwe. The park where Jericho was living had put out a statement at 3:30 p.m. banning the hunt of lions, but learned just 30 minutes later that Jericho had allegedly been killed. Cecil was killed by American dentist, Dr. Walter James Palmer, last month.
