Like many people, I have felt extreme outrage at the mindless and barbaric killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe.
It emerges that dentist Walter Palmer parted with the princely sum of £35,000 to commit this horrendous act – obviously a man of high financial standing but low morals. He was surely aware of the illegality of what he was doing at the time, and should therefore be made to be accountable, along with those complicit in this appalling activity.
The killing of Cecil may have further consequences than the death of this one lion – his cubs may now be killed by the lion of another pride, now that’s Cecil’s protection has been removed.
