A US dentist who killed a lion in Zimbabwe says he regrets shooting the animal.
Walter Palmer a dentist from Minnesota is believed to have paid about $50,000 (£32,000) to hunt Cecil.
Zimbabwe is battling to curb illegal hunting and poaching which threatens to make some of its wildlife extinct.
Comedic (?) Response
The dentist is a well known trophy hunter who has bent the rules before. I think they should turn him loose in the preserve on foot with no gun and see how he makes out.
I bet the Lion would regret it, too.
Disgusting man! He was bragging in an interview about how good a hunter he is - didn't sound a bit remorseful about killing the lion - just about being caught !
