White Men Going to Africa to Murder is Nothing New

Cecil, one of Africa's most famous lions, was brutally murdered and beheaded in Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park earlier this month

Authorities are looking for an American white man who allegedly paid a park ranger 50,000 Euros to viciously kill and skin a lion at Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. Cecil, one of Africa’s most famous lions, was murdered in an especially brutal manner. The 13-year-old had a GPS collar for an Oxford University research project, allowing authorities to track its movements.
Hunters lured the lion into leaving the park, a technique used by poachers to “legally” kill protected animals. The lion was shot with a bow and arrow. The poachers then tracked the injured animal for 40 hours before they shot Cecil to death with a rifle, then skinned and beheaded him.
Cecil’s headless body was found outside the town of Hwange. Cecil had a large pride (family) that could be disbanded and killed by other lions.
