Cecil the lion became a household name after Minnesota dentist and trophy hunter, , murdered Cecil in 2015. The news caused international outrage as Cecil was a beloved animal that lured from the protection of the and then killed.

After this brutal killing and condemnation from people all around the world, Palmer was careful to remain out of the public eye. However, he still continued to pay large sums of money to hunt innocent animals all around the world. One of his most recent murders was an endangered and protected Mongolian argali, the largest sheep in the world.

After Palmer’s infamous murder of Cecil, Representative Raul M. Grijalva introduced the Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing the Importation of Large Animal Trophies Act, also known as the CECIL Act.

This piece of legislation is especially important considering Trump’s rollbacks on a multitude of protections for the environment and animals. According to Stephanie Kurose of the Center for Biological Diversity, “The CECIL Act will throw a much-needed lifeline to Africa’s wildlife. It’s a big step toward giving these magnificent animals a fighting chance at recovery.”

While encouraging the government to pass these larger pieces of legislation, it’s also vital to focus on individual incidences, like Palmer’s murder of this poor sheep, and to help prevent other animals from meeting the same fate as Palmer’s victims.

By encouraging the to prohibit Palmer from bringing home the body of this poor sheep, the US will be sending a strong message that Palmer’s violence will not be tolerated.

It’s a shame but this man is not about to change his tenets or morals about killing innocent animals. And, Mongolia is not going to turn away the fees he paid to hunt that sheep. Who’s kidding who. Money will always trump morals. Kill, kill, kill and kill some more…this is his and many others’ mantra.

Just take one look at that smirking, sanctimonious prick…..lets hope he gets his Karma payback tenfold and a hunted animal hunts him instead, preferably eating him for dinner!!!!

I loathe and detest trophy hunters. I simply cannot comprehend how any human can derive pleasure from killing a beautiful wild animal, and then put its stuffed head on the wall. Disgusting.

killing endangered animals for a piece of wood and metal to put on your wall…how sad……hunters used to kill for meat if they were hungry…this isn’t skill…its murder…
