News agencies confirmed that yesterday Zimbabwe’s iconic lion Cecil was killed illegally by a hunter or hunters. He was shot with a crossbow and finished with a rifle, before being beheaded and skinned.
Cecil, who participated in an Oxford University research project and wore a GPS collar, is survived by six lionesses and about 24 cubs.
I WOULD NOT OBJECT PEOPLE KILLING LIONS, PROVIDED THEY FIGHT ON EQUAL TERMS:
ONE ON ONE, NO GUNS, NO WEAPONS.
