Cecil the lion killed: Where dentist Walter Palmer is hiding, extradition may be the last thing

Now the law seems to be catching up rather fast with the killer of ‘Cecil the lion’, a very popular lion in Zimbabwe. He paid an astronomical sum of $52000 to a hunter in impoverished nation of Zimbabwe.

While $52000 is a huge sum in the USA too where many people don’t earn half this amount in an entire year, in Zimbabwe this is much, much bigger than we can imagine. The Zimbabwe government seems to be taking the issue of killing of Cecil the lion very seriously and has asked the US government for extradition of the hunter who happens to be a dental surgeon based in Minnesota.

In the meantime Dr. Walter Palmer has reportedly contacted for the federal agencies regarding the investigation that they have launched regarding the killing of the lion.

A statement by his representative sent to the media said, “Late yesterday afternoon, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Law Enforcement was contacted by a representative of Dr. Walter Palmer…The service’s investigation is ongoing and appreciates that Dr. Palmer’s representative voluntarily reached out to the service.”

It must be kept in mind that merely two days ago the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service told the media that the dentist was no reachable and that he had not responded to attempts to contact him.
