Cecil the Lion: No Charges for Walter Palmer say Zimbabwean and US Authorities — 3 Comments

  1. Mugabe himself is notoriously corrupt, so it doesn’t come as any surprise that his government have no plans to prosecute Palmer.

    Perhaps their decision that he did “no wrong” is partly influenced by the money these trophy hunters bring to Zimbabwe? They may have worried that prosecuting him, could have affected their future revenue by deterring other hunters from visiting.

  2. I’m with you, Michael: I’m massively disappointed but not surprised.

    Okay then. When all the rich trophy hunters go to Africa and drive those animals to extinction those governments over there better not start crying and moaning. It’s obvious they took their pay-offs under the table and they didn’t give a damn about the wildlife.

    • Totally agree with you. Something is wrong and it is this: governments don’t really care about protecting wild animals. They are more concerned with back handers and making money. In general, every time we get a similar result when it comes to animal abuse. I am used to it but I find it depressing.
