So here we are nine years later where Palmer flew across the world eager to bag another big kill. He goes to Hwange National Park a protected area where tigers should be free to live and where there are many. It is a vast preserve about the size of Connecticut where Cecil the Lion roamed freely. Palmer allegedly paid $55,000 to bag a Lion. It was money that was supposed to cover a hunting permit, payment to the property owner and for a guide. He was never ever supposed to enter a protected wildlife preserve. Palmer dragged a dead elephant tied to the back of his truck and lured the lion out of the preserve to be killed.
It was there on a private farm where the guy who only paid a 3 grand fine and a year probation hit the lion with arrows, left him there for a slow and painful death and the next morning had him skinned with the head still attached. All this for a dramatic picture a pose. There was no hunt. No adventure and no sense of danger. Just a rich American coward fully aware of what he planned to do. Commit another crime in another land. How much punishment will he get this time? I say leave him there naked even just for one night and let’s see who is the hunter and who is the hunted. We can take pictures and examine the remains in the morning just like he did.
