PETA: Dentist Who Killed Cecil the Lion Should Be Hanged

Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- A recent statement from leading Animal protection body PETA on the heel of the recent killing of Cecil said that “hunting is a coward’s pastime” and that the dentist who killed Cecil should be hanged.

“If, as has been reported, this dentist and his guides lured Cecil out of the park with food so as to shoot him on private property, because shooting him in the park would have been illegal, he needs to be extradited, charged, and, preferably, hanged,” PETA’s statement read.

“To get a thrill at the cost of a life, this man gunned down a beloved lion, Cecil with a high-powered weapon. All wild animals are beloved by their own mates and infants, but to hunters like this overblown, over-privileged little man, who lack empathy, understanding, and respect for living creatures, they are merely targets to kill, decapitate, and hang up on a wall as a trophy,” the statement further noted.

“The photograph of this dentist, smiling over the corpse of another animal, who, like Cecil, wanted only to be left in peace, will disgust every caring soul in the world,” the statement closed.
