American public calls for extradition of lion poacher Walter Palmer

Shortly after his identity was disclosed to the public, Palmer closed his dental practice, River Bluff Dental, and took down the company’s website and Facebook page, in response to furious public backlash. The office doors have become part protest site and part shrine to the fallen lion. Protesters gathered there on Wednesday afternoon to rally in support of justice for Cecil. Earlier that day, an email statement sent to the media claimed Palmer didn’t know it was illegal to lure the lion, who wore a GPS-tracking collar as part of an Oxford University research study . Reportedly, the guides who assisted Palmer with the kill tried unsuccessfully to destroy the GPS device after they beheaded and skinned Cecil, and it was the tracking device that allowed researchers to locate the lion’s discarded body and identify him.
