Cecil the lion killed: Walter James Palmer may be on radar of US investigators

Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer’s whereabouts are unknown. He has apologized to his patients for the inconvenience that he has caused due to the backlash over his killing of ‘Cecil the lion’.

Zimbabwean government has threatened serious action against him and at least two people have been arrested for aiding him in the hunting and killing.

In his defense, without coming out of his hideout Walter Palmer has said that he did nothing wrong as he thought all the issues were taken care of by people who facilitated the hunting and the eventual killing of the very popular lion.

cecil the lion killedThere are reports that the Minnesota dentist has gone underground fearing legal retribution not just from Zimbabwean government but also other government agencies. More reports are coming out about how Walter Palmer killed Cecil the lion. Latest reports suggest that the dentist actually killed the beast with a bow and arrow.

In the meantime a report by the CNN says that “his practice, Red River Dental, is shuttered, at least for now. A memorial of stuffed animals piles up at the door”. Many people are asking for head and immediate arrest of the dentist.

Zimbabwe government seems to be trying hard to bring him back to face the music. Officials have released more details about the hunter. An official told the court that Palmer was an American and gave his passport number and street address, but police were more vague. Charity Charamba, a Zimbabwe police spokeswoman, said police were seeking Palmer, “who might be an American or a Spaniard.”

On the other hand the dentist from Minnesota has said that he was innocent as he said hunting was done legally. “To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted…I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt. I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt”, he said in a statement. Zimbabwe official says the hunter paid $50,000 to a safari guide, a fortune in this impoverished nation.
