Associated Press

Man who studied Cecil the lion for 9 years talks impact
By GERALD IMRAY

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — When Cecil the lion's carcass was finally found after he was lured out of a Zimbabwe wildlife reserve to be killed by an American hunter, it was a headless, skinless skeleton the vultures had been picking at for about a week.

Conservationists decided the most natural thing was to leave the bones where they were for hyenas to finish off, said Brent Stapelkamp, a lion researcher and part of a team that had tracked and studied Cecil for nine years.

Stapelkamp darted Cecil and put his last GPS collar on in October. He was probably the last person to get up close before Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer used a bow and a gun to kill the now-famous lion with the bushy black mane, its head and skin eventually cut off as trophies. Stapelkamp had first alerted authorities that something might be wrong after Cecil's GPS collar stopped sending a signal.

The killing of the big cat in early July has unleashed global outrage, sending Palmer into hiding back home in suburban Minneapolis, leading to the arrest of the local hunter he employed, and prompting Zimbabwe's environment minister to say the southern African country would seek Palmer's extradition to face charges.

Stapelkamp shares the anger, not just because of the demise of Cecil. Also because, he said, it's not the first time a lion has been killed illegally around Hwange National Park in northwestern Zimbabwe, a reserve known for its rich wildlife. About a dozen lions in the region were killed illegally in recent years, Stapelkamp said, and no one was caught.

"I think this was just the final straw," Stapelkamp told The Associated Press in a phone interview from the Hwange reserve. "Everyone locally just thought, no ways, we're not letting anyone get away with this anymore."

Cecil had an intriguing story, making him a celebrity in Hwange. He arrived as a kind of lion refugee, alone and wandering after being displaced from another territory. Cecil befriended another male lion, Jericho, and together they grew and watched over two prides, one with three lionesses and seven cubs and another with three lionesses.

The satellite collar on Jericho has been sending normal signals, indicating the lion is alive and moving around, Stapelkamp said.

But Cecil's killing will have an impact on the area, explained Stapelkamp, a field researcher for an Oxford University study on lions.

Jericho may not be able to hold their territory alone and could be chased away by rival lions. Unprotected, the lionesses and cubs would then be under threat and also move away or be killed. Safari operators who invested millions of dollars in the area would lose one of their biggest attractions for tourists.

"They're burning fire breaks. They're grading roads. They're pumping water," Stapelkamp said. "They're spending a lot of money in the management of lions and then someone just draws it across the railway lines having not paid a penny in its management and shoots it and runs away with its skin. It's unacceptable."

Zimbabwe's National Parks and Wildlife Authority said Saturday it has suspended the hunting of lions, leopards and elephants outside of Hwange National Park, and that bow and arrow hunts have also been suspended unless they are approved by the authority's director.

The authority also said it is investigating the killing of another lion in April that may have been illegal.

Stapelkamp, unsure of the details of Cecil's killing, described the usual tactics of hunters to draw an animal onto private land and out of the park where it is protected. The two areas are separated by a railway line. Hunters shoot a zebra or giraffe and hang it on a tree; the main bait. They then drag the intestines of that animal, "something that really smells," Stapelkamp said, up and down the park boundary behind a vehicle. Sometimes they'll even play the sounds of a dying buffalo over a loudspeaker to attract a lion.

The lion "comes across that scent trail and it leads him straight to this bait," Stapelkamp said. "It rushes in for a free meal and they're waiting ... and they kill him like that."

Even on private land, this hunt was still illegal, Stapelkamp said, because no hunting quotas for lions were issued in the region this year. Legal hunts do happen, he said, but only after authorities consult with ecologists and decide that it won't adversely affect the area.

This didn't happen with Cecil, Stapelkamp said, and he doesn't believe Palmer's story that he trusted his professional guide to ensure a legal hunt.

"He's a well-educated man, he's got a lot of resources," Stapelkamp said. "You could do your homework. Due diligence. You would know that you're hunting in a controversial area. You've got a GPS you could have in your pocket and you have a look at the map, and you say, 'listen, friend, I think we're in the wrong area.' There's no excuse."

Palmer came "with the intention of getting the biggest lion that he could and getting out. And he got caught," Stapelkamp said.

Poor ol' Cecil- he got turned into a rug. :|

Where were the animal rights wackos when those poor whales, several hundred of them all told, got chopped up in the Faroe Islands? :-? Or when the sons of Donald Dump went on a shooting spree in Africa and got, among other things, an elephant? :-? :-?

And you are right humans should NOT be allowed to slaughter everything in sight

Sadly most people are only interested in themselves X(

BBC News

Zimbabwe seeks second American 'lion killer'

Image
Cecil was a major tourist attraction in Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park

Zimbabwe says it is seeking a second American over the illegal killing of a lion, as the outcry over the death of famed animal Cecil continues.

The National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority said a doctor from Pennsylvania, named as Jan Casimir Seski, killed a lion in April.

A Zimbabwean landowner has since been arrested, the agency said.

Cecil was shot illegally in July by US dentist Walter Palmer of Minnesota. Zimbabwe is seeking his extradition.

The Associated Press news agency says Mr Seski is a gynaecological oncologist who runs the Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.

The agency called at his home, in woods outside Pittsburgh, and left a telephone message but received no response.

Images on websites linked to hunting show a "Dr Jan Seski" standing next to dead animals including elephants, an impala, a hippo and an ostrich, the agency added. X(

The National Parks authority gave little information on the new case, but said on Sunday that the killing of the lion had taken place without a permit.

It said the hunt had been arranged by a Zimbabwean man who owned a safari company.

The authority said in a statement that it had agreed to "undertake an industry-wide investigation to crack down and weed out any illegal hunting activities", but it was not clear if the latest case had emerged from that investigation.

Mr Palmer is believed to have paid about $50,000 (£32,000) to hunt Cecil, a major tourist attraction in the Hwange National Park.

He says he thought the hunt was legal and was unaware Cecil was protected. (lying piece of shit)

There has been a huge online backlash against Mr Palmer. :ymapplause:

The dental practice he runs in Minneapolis has been closed since he was named as the hunter who shot Cecil. :ymapplause:

On Thursday, the White House said it would review a public petition to extradite the American dentist after more than 100,000 signed it.

But spokesman Josh Earnest said it was up to the US justice department to respond to any extradition order.

World Lion Day activists remember Cecil as they highlight big cats' plight

Animal advocates gather on Boston Common during second annual event to call for an improved coexistence between humans and lions as world mourns Cecil

Days after the death of Cecil the lion incited international outrage, organizers of World Lion Day are hoping to raise even more awareness of the complex nature of the relationship between lions and humans.

“Obviously, Cecil put the lions in the spotlight,” said Wim Dekok, executive director of Four Paws, an international organization that runs sanctuaries to protect wild animals. “Unfortunately, what happened to Cecil happened to many lions before.”

The killing of Cecil, a protected lion in Zimbabwe, sparked calls for prosecution for the American dentist who shot him.

To honor the second annual World Lion Day on 10 August, the US office of Four Paws, located in Boston, Massachusetts, is hosting an event in Boston Common on Monday to raise awareness of lions.

Dekok said Four Paws is concerned about the dwindling lion populations in the wild as well as the plight of lions and big cats held in captivity. Some are circus animals while others are kept by private owners in enclosures, according to Dekok.

At Boston Common, people can have a photograph taken by a cutout of Cecil with a large display of an African landscape in the background. The organization is passing leaflets with information about the plight of lions and asking for online donations.

Concerns about lions are great for a number of reasons. They are dying out, and threatened with habitat and prey loss. Conflicts between lions and humans in villages lead to more deaths. Unsustainable trophy hunting, poaching and the illegal wildlife trade threatens lions further.

Zoo New England, based in Boston, is giving visitors a chance to learn more about lions and conservation efforts. According to a release from the zoo, “lions serve an important role in maintaining balance in healthy ecosystems”.

Those who come to the zoo can participate in arts and crafts and visit with two lion brothers who live onsite.

Across the world, in Kenya and Tanzania, World Lion Day efforts focus on the co-existence of lions and humans. Lion Guardians, a conservation group whose members work toward helping lions and people coexist, is meeting with local communities to talk about the importance of protecting lions.

Cecil the lion's cub killed by rival big cat trying to mate with his mother

Matthew Drake, Chief Reporter, in Hwange, Zimbabwe exclusively reports on the sad death of one of Cecil's cubs

Image

One of Cecil the lion’s young cubs has been killed by a predatory big cat who was trying to mate with his mother, the Sunday Mirror can reveal.

His horrific death has sparked fears the remaining seven cubs – pictured exclusively here – have only days to live after their father was illegally slain on a trophy hunt.

Wildlife guides warn the tiny pride – originally made up of three lionesses and eight cubs – has only a five per cent chance of survival after several solitary male lions were spotted prowling near their abandoned den in Hwange National Park.

Sadly missed Cecil =((

'No justice for Cecil the Lion'

Hunter accused of aiding dentist who shot him is let off

Image

The decision by a Zimbabwe court to drop the case against a professional hunter in connection with the death of Cecil the lion has been met with outrage.

Justices in the city of Bulawayo ruled the charges against Theo Bronkhorst "were too vague to enable to him to mount a proper defence”.

He had been accused of aiding American dentist Walter Palmer when he gunned down the beloved lion during a July 2015 hunting trip which later sparked global condemnation.

Bronkhorst’s lawyer Perpetua Dube successfully argued the charge of "failing to prevent an illegal hunt" was too vague to answer and although he had breached National Parks regulations he did not commit a criminal offence.

"The court granted us that prayer that the charges be quashed," said one of Bronkhorst's legal team, Lovemore Muvhiringi.

”So I cannot imagine the state coming back again charging him with the same charge."

Charges against Palmer were dropped in October 2015. X(

The government later said Mr Palmer would be free to visit Zimbabwe only as a tourist in future, not a hunter, implying he would not be issued further hunting permits.

Cecil was killed after allegedly being lured out of his home in the Hwange National Park with bait before being shot with a bow and arrow and later killed with a gun.

Palmer is said to have paid about £32,000 to hunt the lion.

The dentist was forced to temporarily go into hiding after facing death threats and protests outside his practice in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Animal rights activist Keira Bose said she was disgusted by the decision.

“The fact the allegations Cecil was lured out of his habitat to be killed in the name of sport have not been heard before a court is a travesty,” she said.

“Authorities have a duty to pursue such claims to ensure a crime has not been committed.

“Many of these hunters believe they are above the law and due to a lack of prosecution see it merely as a minor irritation.

"Their bloodlust, however, goes on.” X(

Image

Others took to Twitter to express their frustration.

Karen Palmer wrote “No justice for Cecil the Lion,” while Gonzala Chain added: “What a travesty. Animals been (sic) killed nobody cares. Charges dropped against man who hunted Cecil the lion.”

Cecil had been wearing a GPS collar at the time of his death as he was participating in research by the University of Oxford allowing park rangers to monitor his movements.

The animal was famous in Zimbabwe and tourists would travel from all over the world to go on safari in the hopes of seeing him.

Xanda, son of Cecil the lion, 'killed by hunter' in Zimbabwe :((

Image
Xanda was reportedly shot on a trophy hunt

Two years after Cecil the lion was killed by a trophy-hunter in Zimbabwe, prompting global outrage, his son may have met a similar sad end.

Xanda, a six-year-old lion with several young cubs, was reportedly shot on a trophy hunt.

He is said to have died outside the Hwange National Park in northern Zimbabwe.

The lion had been fitted with an electronic tracking collar by Oxford University researchers.

The BBC's Africa Correspondent, Andrew Harding, reports that at the age of six, Xanda was old enough to be legally targeted by big game hunters.

These individuals, many from the US, UK and South Africa, pay tens of thousands of pounds for the deadly pursuit - thereby funding the staff who protect other wildlife in the National Park.

Image
Sad inheritance: The much-loved Zimbabwean lion Cecil was killed in 2015

It is not yet clear who may have paid to shoot Xanda. A professional hunter is said to have reported the death to the authorities and returned the lion's collar.

The alleged killing comes two years after dentist Walter James Palmer, from Minnesota in the US, sparked an international outcry by killing Cecil, a 13-year-old lion who was a major tourist attraction in the area.

His home and dentistry practice were targeted by protesters after his identity surfaced in the press.

At the time it was reported that the lion had been shot with a bow and arrow and did not die immediately. He was followed for more than 40 hours before being shot with a rifle.

Johnny Rodrigues, the head of Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, told the BBC's Newsday programme that the lion had later been beheaded and skinned.

Mr Palmer was believed to have paid $50,000 (£32,000) to hunt a lion in Zimbabwe's largest game reserve.

Now Xanda's cubs will die without him to protect them :((

Dentist who murdered
Cecil is hunting again


The dentist who slayed Cecil the lion five years ago is hunting again

Walter Palmer, 60, paid up to £80,000 to slaughter a huge ram in Mongolia.

Image

But after the outrage over the death of Cecil, the American “driller killer’s” face is hidden on photos boasting of the hunt.

Image

Humane Society International said: “Clearly the killing for kicks continues”.

In a new photo - with his face hidden from view - the man who killed Cecil the lion shows off a slaughtered wild sheep.

The image was taken on a sickening trip that proves dentist Palmer has returned to trophy hunting.

It comes despite the global backlash the American sparked after slaying much-loved lion Cecil in Zimbabwe, almost exactly five years ago.

Palmer paid up to £80,000 for the trip to hunt Altai argali – the world’s biggest type of sheep – in Mongolia.

Dr Teresa Telecky, wildlife vice-president at Humane Society International, said: “For trophy hunters to travel to Mongolia to kill a beautiful and ­endangered ram is an absolute outrage.

“The argali ram is a species in danger of extinction, so the idea that these animals can be killed for pleasure is abhorrent.

“The killing of Cecil the lion five years ago caused international shock. But clearly the killing for kicks continues.

“It’s time for the law to stop wildlife killers in their tracks by banning trophy hunting.”

Image

Palmer, left, with his face out of shot holding a ram hunted in Mongolia

The Mirror is campaigning for an end to trophy hunting and calling on the UK Government to ban the import of animals killed for pleasure.

Palmer’s trip to Mongolia last August is thought to have lasted up to a week, after travelling 5,800 miles from his home state of Minnesota.

Palmer and his friend Brent Sinclair met local guides before heading into the mountains to track their prey.

Image

The two men have travelled the world together to kill animals for fun.

It is understood the ram, said to be a “much older male”, was killed with an arrow from around 30 yards.

A source claims Palmer has several more trips planned.

The insider said: “At the time of Cecil’s death, Walter took a back seat. But he’s been hunting ever since he was a boy. It’s a way of life to him. Walter has undertaken several hunts since Cecil’s death.

"The trip to Mongolia was his idea. The ram was on his list of hunts he wanted to complete.”

Walter Palmer, 60, approached about the photo by Mirror man Christopher Bucktin (Image: Aaron St Clair)

The sheep is still in Mongolia for now. US officials have yet to grant the permit for it to be exported to America.

Of their hunt to kill the Altai argali, Sinclair was careful not to name Palmer on social media posts, instead calling him “amigo”.

Writing on his public Facebook page, Sinclair said of the driller killer: “I have booked more hunting trips with this guy over the past 20 years than I can count.

Walter Palmer posing with one of his many trophies

“Together, we have travelled to many far reaches of the world.”

He talked about them once killing an elephant, but said the trip to slaughter the sheep may be “at the top of the pinnacle and hard to beat”.

He added: “Thanks, Amigo for the adventure... look forward to our next one.”

The Mirror spoke to Palmer as he emerged from a bar in Bloomington, Minnesota, after he had taken an early lunch.

He smiled at first, but his face turned to anger when shown the pictures of his hunt in Mongolia.

Palmer refuses to hunt with a gun, using a bow and arrow instead

He refused to talk, driving off in his £95,000 Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Dad-of-two Palmer refuses to hunt with a gun, using a bow and arrow instead.

He is known to spend hours practising at his million-dollar five-bedroom home in Eden Prairie, near Minneapolis, and his holiday house in Marco Island, Florida.

Palmer was with Sinclair, who arranges hunts for wealthy Americans, when Cecil the lion was killed.

The magnificent creature was a huge attraction in Hwange National Park.

Palmer on a hunting trip in Mongolia

At the time, he was being tracked through a GPS satellite collar by a research team at Oxford University as part of a long-term study.

The 13-year-old black-maned lion was wounded with an arrow, then tracked and killed with a second dart the following morning, around 12 hours later.

Police investigated after a claim that Cecil was slaughtered illegally. There were accusations bait was used to lure him out of his protected habitat.

However, Zimbabwe’s High Court threw out charges against Palmer’s guide Theo Bronkhorst.

The court agreed with the defence that it could not have been a crime because the American had a legal permit to hunt.

It is thought the trip cost Palmer around £40,000. Afterwards, the dentist said: “If I had known this lion had a name and was important to the country or a study, obviously I wouldn’t have taken it.

“Nobody in our hunting party knew before or after the name of this lion.”

Two weeks after Palmer’s trip to Mongolia last year, the US President’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr also ­travelled there to hunt the sheep.

It cost American taxpayers £60,000 for the cost of secret service agents.

Critics argue that Trump Jr’s love of killing big game is the reason why his dad has rolled back restrictions on imports of hunting trophies.
