The lion was a distance that allowed the hunter to prepare for the fatal shot. It was a fabulous animal with its the yellow around the face and dark mane, long, skirting the neck.

The hunter had traveled thousands of kilometers from the United States to Zimbabwe, in Africa, in order to slaughter an animal considered the king of nature. What mattered lion majesty, if your habit of hunting excelled in their interests?

Accustomed to hunting, they had killed many animals, which were photographed and had their heads hanging in a large room of a mansion.

Killing animals was his favorite sport. As important as killing them was show them to the world so that everyone knew their courage in bloody campaign.

Killing animals was his hobby and now lying in Africa had to show how much was expert in what he was doing. I was not afraid of the animals, for the facing, face to face, to slaughter them. Always guided by professionals, armed hunters strongly, if not their intent could surely one of his guards subdued the animal before they were attacked.

In this hunt, they attracted the lion out of the Hwange National Park with a lure, a piece of animal tied in a vehicle. The lion with nothing suspicious, followed the hunters to a place where it should be shot.

This lion was called Cecil and wore a necklace with GPS posed by scientists in a Oxford University of Britain project. He was extremely calm and enjoyed the cars of tourists, not bothering without causing panic. I was used to the presence of humans who came to see him with his family.

The American hunter paid $ 50,000 Honest Ndlovu, owner of a private park of hunting and the hunter Theo Bronkhorst so he could hunt the lion.

The lion was at a safe distance to the fatal shot with his bow designed for hunting. The increased adrenaline, her hands trembled, but had to take it easy not to miss the mark. The lion was in front waiting to be slaughtered.

The arrow crossed the air and hit Cecil, who felt the impact of the arrow and ran looking to hide. He wandered for 40 hours, injured, to be found by hunters or being shot down with a fatal shot. The head was cut to serve as a trophy in any room of an American home.

The death of the lion demonstrates the ignorance that still prevails in people who call themselves hunters. Face the beasts with modern weapons is easy, very easy. I would like to see them address these animals with their bare hands without any weapon. One hundred percent of the battles, the animals would win.

Zimbabwe officials called for Honest testimony, the owner of the park and Theo, the hunter who allowed the US killed the lion was a symbol of the country. Now ask the American extradition so that they can judge it by act of cowardice.

The hunter Walter Palmer, took to killing the lion. It dentist and resident of Minnesota, in the United States. He defended himself by saying that he believed that professional guides would lead to slaughter a lion was not so famous. You say you love hunting activity and who practices responsibly and within the law.

We know that many African countries and other parts of the world allow hunters kill animals provided that they pay for it. This dirty money obtained with the bloodshed of innocent animals should be forgotten by the authorities of those countries. They gain much more if modernize its parks and build tourism networks that could lead to the largest possible number of tourists that would lead only with a "weapon": the camera.

The whole world is outraged by the hunting Walter Palmer and the people ask him to be punished, as would gain much more if he had stayed in his office serving their patients instead of taking the life of animals that are in the world under God's blessings.

Rather than alleviate the toothache of his patients, was taking the life of a lion is the symbol of Zimbabwe. This is the purest cowardice! ...
