Vale Cecil, may your spirit live on. :candle:

A beautiful haiku Nollaig. Thank you.

For those like me who are out of the loop:

That's pretty outrageous.

To me it's a mystery how someone who pays a fortune just to kill a sentient being (not for food, nor for need of protection, just for the thrill of the kill) can be deemed anything but a psychopath. Then again, he was a dentist... :???:

I hope that Cecil's death and the public outcry it creates in the end will protect the lives of many lions and other wildlife.

I think it's beyond disgusting that there was even a big game hunting preserve right next door to a wildlife refuge. How could that even be allowed. I hope the whole hunting ground gets shut down as a result of this. Apparently the hunting ground didn't even have a lion tag for that year so they had no business of even selling a lion hunting safari for 2015.

It looks like nothing about the hunt was legal. There is a chance that the dentist could be extradited to stand trial in Zimbabwe, and I think prison time in Zimbabwe is a good way of pointing out that karma's a bitch.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.
