Conspiracy theory: Walter Palmer was stitched up by conservationists — 8 Comments

  1. Actually after Palmer killed Cecil a year later these same hunt guys did it again! Cecil’s brother Jerico. They say he died of natural causes but the first story I read (an now can’t find) said he was wounded by a arrow. I hate Zimbabwe’s new president who lifted the killing of wildlife. Zimbabwe also happens to be the dirty rats that have sold at least 50 baby elephants in China for Zoos! Only 25,000 left of 200,000.

  2. Palmer has a track record for being a liar;

    In 2009 “As the hunting season began, Palmer was on probation for lying to authorities over the exact location where he had killed a black bear in northern Wisconsin in 2006.”

    He’s a wealthy man who enjoys killing animals and he’s killed lots. I wish him nothing but misery for the rest of his days.

  3. He wasn’t set-up. No-one forced him to to travel to Africa to kill any animals and he hired the guides. He knew from the GPS collar Cecil was wearing that it would be illegal to hunt him and that’s why he tried unsuccessfully to remove and hide the collar after the kill.

    It estimated that it took poor Cecil 40 hours to die, from the initial injury from the bow and arrow until they tracked him down and finished him off with a gun. Where’s the ‘sport’ in that!

    Scum like Walter Palmer deserve everything that is coming to them …. and it will, courtesy of the public, if not the authorities.

    • Yes, I think you are right. I am trying to get a dialogue going to discuss this crime. There is a faint possibility there is some sort of set up because it is irrational to kill Zimbabwe’s most famous lion. There was bound to be a backlash and it has caused Palmer (correctly) massive problems. There were other lions to choose. I suppose the answer to that is that Palmer is irrational. Mad almost.

      • Palmer probably thought he could get away with shooting Africa’s most famous lion. I’m sure he relished the ‘challenge’ of taking on such a magnificent creature. Not to mention the bragging rights Cecil’s head on his wall, would have given him amongst his fellow hunters.

        If he were genuinely remorseful for killing a protected lion, then he would have admitted to his ‘mistake’, instead of trying to hide the evidence of his crime.

        I’m just glad that Cecil’s killer has been identified. Like Kristen Lindsey before him, he will find that there is no hiding place for a monster.

        • Michele, what is bugging me slightly is that this crime is no different fundamentally to the Kristen Lindsey crime yet there is an almost a complete lack of interest by domestic cat caretakers in the shooting of this lion compared to the keen interest shown in the killing of a domestic cat by Lindsey.

          • I agree, their crimes are the same – an illegal killing of an animal.

            Why do you feel there’s a lack of interest from cat owners to Cecil’s killing, compared to Tiger’s?
