Didn’t we just say recently that we are not against hunting? We did say that, and it is still true, but let us clarify real fast. It’s one thing to hunt in that real Native American way, where you use the whole animal and you respect that it gave its life to feed, nourish, clothe you and whatever else. It’s even one thing to be a redneck from Mississippi (hey y’all) and go out early in the morning and kill a deer, as long as you bring us deer meat or invite us over for deer chili. But it is a whole different goddamn thing to be a piece of trash American who travels across the globe to find new, exotic animals to murder, for no reason nobler than the fact that you really have a hard-on for murdering animals, you sick fuck. Introduce yourself to Walter Palmer of Minnesota:

Cecil the lion – the most famous creature in one of Zimbabwe’s national parks – was killed by an American hunter who has boasted about shooting a menagerie of animals with his bow and arrow, The Telegraph can reveal.

Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, is believed to have paid £35,000 to shoot and kill the much-loved lion with a bow and arrow. The animal was shot on July 1 in Hwange National Park. Two independent sources have confirmed the hunter’s identity to the paper, which has also seen a copy of the relevant hunting permit.

Conservation groups in Zimbabwe reacted angrily to the news that the 13-year-old animal had been killed: partly because the lion was known to visitors and seemingly enjoyed human contact, and partly because of the way in which he was killed. He was lured out of the national park and shot.

And Palmer is like “oh yeah that was probably me, I am a badass who actually travels around the world spending the money I make from being probably a bad dentist on murdering animals so I can make up for whatever happened to me in my childhood to make me a bad person.”

So, at issue — because hunting of lions is legal under certain circumstances in Zimbabwe — is the fact that the professional hunter Palmer hired, Theo Bronkhorst, allegedly lured Cecil, a collared lion, off the property of the national park where he lived so that he could be murdered to satiate the American’s bloodlust right and proper. According to a statement from Zimbabwe National Parks:

“All persons implicated in this case are due to appear in court facing poaching charges.

“Both the professional hunter and land owner had no permit or quota to justify the offtake of the lion and therefore are liable for the illegal hunt.”

Bronkhorst said he didn’t know this was a famous lion which people loved, guess he just thought it was some loser lion named Norm or something.

The Telegraph points out that Dr. Palmer’s website says when he’s  not being a dentist, you’ll find him anywhere he can “photograph wildlife,” which is probably a bit of a stretch, unless his iPhone has some kind of fancy “discharge bullet” app on it.

So what happens now? Oh, probably more lions will die, but this time it will be baby lions, and all because this creep American dentist got the itch:

Dr Andrew Loveridge, one of the principal researchers on the [Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford University, said] that Cecil and another male lion named Jericho led two prides with six lionesses and a dozen young cubs, and he feared for the safety of the cubs now Cecil had been killed.

“Jericho as a single male will be unable to defend the two prides and cubs from new males that invade the territory. This is what we most often see happening in these cases. Infanticide is the most likely outcome,” he said.

Cool story. Here are some pictures of Dr. Palmer with some other animals he’s killed:

Loser. The UK version of the Huffington Post reports that people are leaving mean reviews on Dr. Palmer’s Yelp page about what a shitty human being he is, sadface, hope it doesn’t hurt his career or anything.

    I don’t hunt. I don’t like hunting. But, I do eat meat, so I recognize my own hypocrisy and don’t speak out against hunters who hunt for food (although I don’t understand enjoying killing another creature).

    But dear god, trophy hunters are the worst. To kill something solely for ‘sport’ and so you can hang its severed head or stuffed carcass on your wall and brag about what you’ve accomplished makes me literally ill.

    • Spotts1701

      Yeah I have relatives that hunt for food(usually they take deer and then we have venison salami at Christmastime), and I understand that. And it’s a fairly well-regulated system where poaching, baiting, trapping or killing out of season is punished severely.
      But to kill a noble animal just because you can? What, exactly, is sporting about that?

      • Lizzietish81

        Friend of mine hunts Deer and does all the butchering and shit herself. And she’s a librarian who writes supernatural erotica and can cook a layer cake over a campfire.

        Anyways, one afternoon she’s driving back from a signing and sees a deer on the side of the road. She decides to take it home and starts trying to get it into her trunk, while wearing high heels and a short skirt. A state trooper stops and asks what she’s doing, so she asks if he can help her get the deer in her car.

        I’ve had her venison stew, it’s cosmic.

      • Zippy

        my big problem with hunting is that hunters tend to take the best animal they find, rather than going after the sick and elderly the way most predators do. So hunting serves as a poor replacement for letting mother nature do her thing. But that being said, I have no problem with hunters who follow the law and make use of that animal- they also don’t generally hunt endangered species. It’s not like we’re in danger of running out of deer (and I have to admit, venison is tasty)

      • AntiDerpomeme

        It’s the blatant disregard for the life that makes me so ragey. I recall reading that after a hunt, Native Americans would have a ceremony for the animal’s spirit and thank it. They respected the life of the animal and their role in the taking of it, and I think it’s important that we at least have a thought about where our meat has been and the life of the animal before we eat it, and try to buy, hunt or otherwise procure ethically where possible. I try to be mindful of that when I eat meat, which I do enjoy on occasion, and I guess I’m weird but I also say a silent thank you to the animal’s spirit.

        And if you are not eating it, do not kill it, you sick fuck.

        • tomamitai

          I am not going to eat spiders and other bugs, and I will keep squishing the ones that get past the stuff I spray around the foundation of my house! Except for the Ladybugs and Stinkbugs, those I catch and release.

          • AntiDerpomeme

            OK, I agree about bugs. Although consider a catch-and-release approach for spiders too–they eat mosquitoes!

          • tomamitai

            I know how useful spiders are, but they scare me so they’re going to get the shoe when they come into my house! I don’t spray or bother the ones living outside or in my garden shed.

    • marxalot

      I regard trophy and sport hunters as dangerously close to the kind of serial killers that keep mementos. You stalk and kill some living creature so you can display its parts? I see. And the locks are keyed on both sides of the door? Fascinating. What a lovely murder shed this is.

      I never understood the equivalence between hunting and eating meat, as vegans are so quick to point out. Hunting, when done for sport, is wrong. We can all pretty much agree on that.

      Hunting, when done for food, especially when your family can’t afford to buy enough land for a farm and can’t afford even Wal-Mart prices, is somehow also wrong in some quarters. OK, I mean, it is still killing a living animal…nevermind that Nature makes allowances for this in Her plans.

      But somehow, raising a cow or a chicken or goat is wrong, because, you know, animal protein is evil (let’s keep the side issues of quality of life or strain on natural resources out of it for now and focus strictly on nutrition)? That flies in the face of human evolution.

      There was a program on Science Channel a few years back that demonstrated that, to get the nutrition found in one half pound of animal meat, you’d literally have to eat half a pasture (the visual was a front-loader dumping a pile of grass clippings on a set dinner table). The reason humans became intelligent creatures is the concentration of nutrients in animal proteins (particularly essential amino acids).

      I’ll grant that westerners in particular eat way too much meat, too often, particularly red meats, and that plant proteins have an important place in our diet. But don’t call me a hypocrite because I like a chicken Caesar salad or a turkey burger. Just don’t.

    This is what they should do to this man….

    First..they should pull all his teeth out one by one without any anasthesia.

    Then they should let him bleed…

    Then they need to take him to South Africa or the Gulf of Mexico and slit open the bottoms of his feet…then throw him over into the nice warm waters and watch the motherf09gker be eaten alive by the gorgeous Great White sharks roaming those waters.

    With some luck, we’ll watch a Great White breach as it cuts his body in half.

    He deserves at least that much. Then he can rot in Hell….

    It’s all okay. He immediately hired a PR firm (the first, best refuge of the sociopath), to explain (assplain?) to outraged humans that HE is actually the victim here. After all, he PAID for the right to kill a wild animal (and to have it shepherded right to him by ‘assistant big man game hunters’ so that he didn’t have to break a sweat in order to indulge in his blood lust) and thought all the appropriate ‘small dick, need animal trophy’ licensing was in place. Those sophisticated Zimbabwean gamekeepers took advantage of his naivete and now he is being harassed and ‘hunted’ by people who just don’t understand what a law-abiding and upright penis-challenged human being he is.

    I guess there are no low income people here in MN who could use $50,000 worth of donated dental services, so he had no choice but to spend his excess earnings killing things for decoration. It’s not his fault…

      Might (again, big “might”) be believable if he hadn’t already gotten in trouble with the Wildlife po-po for poaching a black bear a few years back. He claimed then he was doing everything nice and legal, despite shooting said bear 40 miles from the permitted hunting area and then transporting the bear’s body into the hunting area to claim it as a legally bagged animal.

    I am really struck by the selective outrage over this but no outrage over Planned Parenthood where they kill the most vulnerable Human Babies.
    He is a HUMAN. BABIES are human.
    Trophy hunting is uncivilized, but killing babies is not???
    Keep this in perspective. Millions of babies being crushed, dissected, and body parts sold for profit by leftists, (many of them minorities), and some animals being killed for sport.
    Muslims beheading innocents all over the world, rampant religious persecution and you are outraged to the point of wanting to kill a hunter?
    Leftist hyper reactionary thought is what needs to be exterminated from this world.

  • And The Doc releases a statement doubling down on the fact he didn’t realize this was a popular captain of the football team cool kid lion and not some geeky nerd fag lion everybody hates:

    “In early July, I was in Zimbabwe on a bow hunting trip for big game. I hired several professional guides and they secured all proper permits. To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted.

    “I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt. I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt.

    “I have not been contacted by authorities in Zimbabwe or in the U.S. about this situation, but will assist them in any inquiries they may have.

    “Again, I deeply regret that my pursuit of an activity I love and practice responsibly and legally resulted in the taking of this lion.”

    He reportedly concluded with:

    “So now everybody can just stop being MEAN to me. Right now…I’m gonna count three and everybody’s gonna stop being mean to me…one…two…”

    • jviscont1

      maybe his deepest regrets will include budgeting some big Zimbabwe donation bucks at the expense of any of his future planned conquests. doubt it.

    • HogeyeGrex

      practice responsibly

      You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    • Enfant Terrible

      I have a special response for Dr. Palmer. It may cross a line regarding our rules, but it is an elegant, short message that effects maximum information AND attitude transference within the framework of four letters…

      FOAD.

      Fuck off and die.

      Dr. Palmer, in four letters, you are provided with a useful sequence of recommended actions, and a brief but complete summation of my feelings about you, with the desired result being that you will cease to annoy the world with your presence and commence to delight it with your absence.

      Fuck Off And Die.

      “Fuck Off” means to “go away”, only very soonest. The implicit meanings nested in this phrase are “Right Now” and “By Any Or All Available Means”.

      Fuck. Off. And. Die.

      “And Die” is NOT a morbid wish for your imminent demise, but a simple acknowledgement that you lack sufficient ethics regarding hunting and have no respect for the animals you kill. Therefore, the only condition that will ensure your positive response to the shit storm you stirred up is your own death.

      Defenestration or self-immolation are recommended, but only to emphasize that your horrid lack of empathy for the animals you kill instills the certain knowledge that you will never make a contribution to the world that is worthy of anything but an entry on the web page, “Minnesota’s Biggest Assholes”.

    • OrdinaryJoe

      For all intents and purposes he essentially wounded an animal that was just this side of zoo kept. Then had to track down the badly weakened creature and blast it with a firearm. This wasn’t even big game “hunting” any more than throwing a cheese baited line in a trout farm pond is fishing. He should be shamed as a human being for murdering that animal. He should be shamed as a so called hunter for the inept and cowardly way he did it.

  • AmusedAmused

    I can understand people hunting for food. But people who get themselves armed to the teeth to kill a defenseless creature because they think it somehow affirms their manhood inspire nothing but contempt from me. It’s not even the lack of respect for life (hey, how much you wanna bet this guy is anti-choice because “sanctity” of life), but the incomprehensible, infantile impulse to destroy something rare and beautiful for reasons that can never be clearly articulated.

    I wonder, when these men see, say, the Versailles Palace, is their first thought: “Splendid! Now, if only I could blow that up for s***s and giggles …”?

    When they see a beautiful classic painting, is their first and strongest desire to slash it or throw acid on it?

    When they see a lone picturesque tree, do they immediately want to chop it down?

    When they see a serene lake, do they want to drain it, fill it with concrete and build a soulless high-rise on top?

    When they hear a beautiful piece of music, do they want to kill the musician?

    When they see an attractive woman, is their first thought …

    No, forget it, I don’t even want to go there.

    P.S.: One minor quip about Native Americans: let’s not idealize, Wonkette. Buffalo drives killed many more animals than the people who killed them could use. The idea that “noble savages” lived in harmony with nature is a romantic one, but historically inaccurate.

    • Barbara Delaney

      As far as the quibble, I thought the buffalo drives that natives engaged in were described as,

      “Buffalo jump sites yield significant archaeological evidence because processing sites and camps were always nearby. The sites yield information as to how the Native Americans used the bison for food, clothing and shelter. Plains Indians in particular depended on the bison for their very survival. Every part of the animal could be used in some way: hides for clothes and shelter, bones for tools, sinews for bowstrings and laces. Hooves could be ground for glue, and the brains could be used in the tanning process for the hides. The extra meat was preserved as pemmican.”

      I don’t think anyone here is romanticizing the lives of the earliest people to live on this continent. But I think everyone is thoroughly repulsed, angered and greatly saddened by the behavior exhibited by this man.

      • tomamitai

        I thought the government encouraged the eradication of buffalo as a way of driving the Native Americans off the plains and into reservations?

        • nightmoth

          After the Civil War ended, General Sherman was reassigned to the West, where he used his “starving the civilians” technique he’d used so successfully in Georgia. He stationed hunters in every military fort to do nothing but kill every buffalo they saw and leave it to rot. When the Indians began starving to death, they were easily forced onto the reservations they had resisted.

    • Unforgotten

      That they ended up killing more than they needed (or could harvest) is a fact, but it was more unintentional than anything and they ended up perfecting the hunt to reduce the chance of it to happen to a more-than-acceptable minimum.
      On the other hand, do you remember that scene from ‘Dances With Wolves’ when the tribe meets a buffalo/bison killed because by white men of its skin and tongue (the meat and bones were not taken)?
      Historically accurate, by the thousands!

    • ahughes798

      Yeah, the “Native Americans were peace loving proto-hippies” thing bothers me a lot. They were human beings who could in turn be brutal, loving, hateful, and all the other stuff that makes humans, humans.

      • AmusedAmused

        Exactly. Idealization is just another form of dehumanization.

    • SadDemInTex

      The buffalo were not rendered almost extinct by Native Americans. That dear Amused was done by rich white “hunters” who sat in railroad cars and used a jillion bullets to kill and kill and kill as they passed by herds of buffalo. (Oh the English upper class loved coming here and doing that). It took only a decade to do because of this mindless slaughter…just to kill a large animal with a gun. And they left the carcasses to rot…didn’t even bother to take a trophy. The passenger pigeon at least was used as food…and it was extinct within 5 years of the real hunting frenzy.

  • Lance Thrustwell

    It’s not even hypocritical to condemn this motherfucker. Those animals are ENDANGERED. I know their extinction is inevitable – just like I know, on one of my bad days, that the human race is either going to go extinct or will come very close as a result of environmental apocalypse – but to think of some grinning oblivious redneck yahoo like this just. not. giving. a shit makes me feel, well, kinda homicidal.

      There’s nothing that can be done to/for/in the name of Cecil now.
      And the outrage created with his (yeah, ‘his’!) death might help a lot of other animals (or at least hamper the ‘sport’ that killed him).
      So… Bugs Bunny, Tex Avery or ‘Totoro’ (it usually helps).

      Why?

    Wanna know how he killed that leopard? From the picture one might conclude that the gladiator emerged victorious from a battle royale with the leopard. Yeah, not exactly. His hired guide takes him into the bush and releases dogs that track down a leopard. The leopard naturally climbs a tree to get away from the approaching dogs. When he and his guide finally catch up to the dogs, who have the leopard treed, the shirtless wonder simply walks up to the base of the tree and shoots the leopard from almost point blank range. It’s one of the most chicken-shit forms of hunting but right down this guy’s alley.

        • GOPvsUSA

          Yep, it’s what Righties call “free speech” (much to their dismay now that that right has one of them in the crosshairs).

          You’re simply exercising that right. I see no problem with it whatsoever!

          Those hypocrites just HATE when their own logic is used against them.

          • If Sarah Palin doxxed a guy, and that guy was shot by a Nazi, would you want Palin taken to court? I would. If we play by our own rules, that makes it Wonkette’s fault if Mighty Hunter Dentist gets mightily hunted.

          • willi0000000

            thank you, Doloras . . . not doxxing someone is a very small part of what separates the left from the right.

            i wish it were possible to prosecute the likes of o’rly for their constant shit stirring that leads even a small percentage their followers into doing despicable things (Tiller the killer comes immediately to mind).

            Sarah would never do that, she’d just put his name on a target list under a cross-hair gun sight graphic and tell her followers to “Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD!”, and then, afterwards, have her spokesperson claim it was a “map cross-hair” and deny that she was in any way trying to provoke the shooting.

      • malsperanza

        In general I agree, but the info was on his own website. Which he shut down after his public posting of his kills caught the attention of the public. So, honestly, fuck his personal space.

        I have put a reminder note in my calendar for 6 months from now, when the story may have died down and need reviving. At that point I’ll see how i feel about doxxing his ass. Depends what happens to him in the meantime.

        • LeoK711

  • Mehmeisterjr

    I am embarrassed to that I have to own up to a few actions of my own. Keeping in mind that I did nothing wrong except a few little things, here is my very nearly sincere nopology, which I hope will put the matter to rest:

    In early July, I was in [country name redacted] on a bow hunting trip for long pig. I hired several professional guides and they secured all proper permits. To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more.

    I had no idea that the long pig I took was a known, local favorite television personality, was white-collared and part of a study of the long-term medical effects of not being shot with an arrow until the end of the hunt. I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal long pig hunt and Bwana wet dream.

    I have not been contacted by authorities in [country name redacted] or in the U.[second capital letter redacted]. about this situation, but will assist them in any inquiries they may have, especially about how much fun it was and how Ubermensch-y I feel. If it is any consolation, the beheading was far from the best part, though satisfying enough, I guess, on its own terms.

    Again, I deeply regret that my pursuit of an activity I love obsessively and practice responsibly and legally and with great relish and glee and chest-beating and penis-substituting resulted in the taking of this long pig.

    • cessnadriver

      Extra kudos for knowing the “long pig” reference! Your post is an instant classic.

  • JParkerSD46

    Just how small and limp is this guy’s peen? What a colossal…sorry, I don’t have any word to describe this p.o.s.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      What a colossal… Republican?

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        His political affiliation is never mentioned in the article, but you just gotta think that anyone this casually vicious is a Repub.

        • cessnadriver

          The bow hunting thing is possibly a homage to Mr. Poopypants. You know, the other poacher on the board of the NSRA.

      • AngryKatie

        This piqued my interest, so with some help from the google I found that he gave $5000 to Mittens in 2012 (unless there is another Dr. Walter Palmer who also lives in Eden Prairie MN). He tried to give another $2500 (it seems he has a fuzzy relationship with rules in general), but it was rejected as he’d already reached the donation limit.

        He does seem like the kind of guy that would give the max to Romney/Ryan.

        • Mehmeisterjr

          Thanks for doing the hard work to prove my bare-ass theory correct. This is how science works!

        • cessnadriver

          People in Eden Prarie are exactly like the staff that worked at Auschwitz. Without the charm.

  • Enfant Terrible

    Meanwhile, back in Minnesota, folks are getting creative. Here’s a nice couple, going big game hunting for dentists. And I really, really like the stuffed lion on Palmer’s mailbox.

    Hold on he said he regrets it, more like regrets getting caught, I absolutely hate this prick something about killing beautiful creatures that tears at my heart, I hope we as a people united put him out of business.

  • malsperanza

    He also killed a rhino, a critically endangered species.

    As for Robert Mugabe, who runs Zimbabwe, that dude shoots small children, so letting evil people kill wildlife is just SOP. And there’s nothing that will shame him.

    But maybe the dentist can have his livelihood wrecked. I could go for that. And if Sarah Palin and Donald Trump atep forward to defend him — well, that would be even better.

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      I’d be astonished if $arah doesn’t come to his defense. This is exactly the kind of issue she loves to stick up the snout of her detractors.

      • Enfant Terrible

        Shoot, she’d call him out for not hunting lions from an airplane!

    • Arcturus

      He also was federally convicted of poaching a bear in Wisconsin in 2008… Shot it where there was no hunting, and then lied about where he killed it. Sounds familiar.

    Quotes from Walter Palmer’s upcoming book Out of Africa Before I’m Prosecuted for Poaching

    -You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions and a tame one walks up to you and you kill it.

    -Perhaps I knew, as he did not, that the Earth was made round so that we would not see too far down the road when I scurried like a cockroach out of public view after I murdered a tame animal. A round world made it easier for me to hide my tiny cock in my gun room.

    -No domestic animal can be as still as a wild animal. That can make the wild animals easier to kill, if you’re willing to pay to get to where they are and shoot them. The civilized people have lost the aptitude of murder, and must become reacquainted with it by hanging out with dentists, podiatrists, and realtors.

  • GOPvsUSA

    Here’s a just punishment:

    Make him dress up in a lion suit, shoot him with a bow and arrow, keep him alive for 40 hours with that arrow in him, then …

    And only then … behead him and skin him.

    Selling pieces of his flesh for profits to be donated later or the mailing of said pieces to fellow hunters hunters strictly for deterrent purposes is strictly optional.

  • LA Julian

    He paid a lot of money to make a sexual harassment suit go away, too. And he’s been repeatedly caught poaching bears, and lying about it, in the USA.

      Never heard of “DOXing” before although the concept is not foreign. My Wonkette is so educational. Also recreational. And avocational.

      • Mehmeisterjr

        I’ve heard of it but it doesn’t belong here.

        I may be kidding myself but ridicule seems to work at least as well.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        And aspirational.

      • Upon further research, I conclude that the preferred spelling is ‘doxxing.’

        Which I find weird, as I usually see DOX in all caps, which would lead one to think it began its humble life as an acronym. But I guess not.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Absolutely. This is not the place for this AT ALL. A big part of why I hang out here.

    • cessnadriver

      The guy is listed in the phone book and all over the internet-that should be enough.

  • Marceline

    What is the penalty if he’s found guilty of poaching? I’m terrified this guy might be able to buy off officials in Zimbabwe whereas I expect him to end up the invited guest of all the GOP presidential candidates. If he’s not looking at jail time or some kind of really creative punishment (walks around the airport with a sign that says “I’m a soulless fuck”) then I’d rather let the internet rage factory keep working its magic.

  • Arcturus

    I hunt, I have two shotguns and a rifle right in the next room at this moment. I go freeze my ass trying to shoot a deer every November, or maybe get a pheasant or two… But like this article said- to travel the world simply to kill some exotic animal just so you can bring its pelt or head back home makes you some kind of sick bastard. Fuck this guy and all “big game” hunters. They are narcissistic assholes who probably weren’t breast-fed long enough or something.

    • blaid droog

      when I was very young, in the days when tee vee was black and white, there was an ugly obnoxious troll by the name of arthur godfrey. once he went big game hunting and showed his audience film of his despicable porcine self shooting Elephants and Lions…from a fucking helicopter. this long before palin was even a single cell.

      • Mehmeisterjr

        Remember when he fired Julius La Rosa live on the air?

        Me either but he did. America realized he was a mean-minded SOB right then.

        By the time I heard him he was a repulsive ukulele-playing radio has-been.

        The late Andy Rooney had his good points and his bad points but I treasure the memory of the day when CBS did a round-table discussion and the subject of the recently-croaked Arthur Godfrey came up and they asked Andy Rooney (who worked for him) asked what AG’s place in history would be and AR said, “He has no place in history” and proceeded to tell an unflattering account of Godfrey, who fancied himself a pilot, flying into NYC with Rooney as a passenger and saying, “Goddam it, Andy. Someday this will be all this here and I won’t.”

        The perfect solipsist and a family joke in my family since forever.

      Thanks for the heads-up–although I have a feeling we’ll just keep reposting those types of comments anyway…

      • Amy!

        That’s not advised. Please do read the Commenting Rules for Radicals, and be aware that repeated violation will result in the banhammer falling down.

        Dentist Asshole is A Idiot. Possibly sociopathic. Disgusting. Infuriating. Yup.

        We don’t dox, we don’t death-wish, we don’t create elaborate torture fantasies. Them’s the rules for commenting here (except that comments are not allowed, as is well known).

        • Mehmeisterjr

          Even when furiously angry, I try (so far with success) to stay within the rules and, anyhow, I live to crack wise. So yeah, let’s keep within the rules for commenting. They aren’t that difficult to observe and result in a hotter burn anyhow. Also, too, funny.

    • Did this dentist scum rape Cecil? Because that’s what people are fantasising about.

      • GOPvsUSA

        The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

        Please remember to wash your hands whenever you finish up.

          • Steverino247

            Why do you keep banhammering yourself? Smack! Smack! Smack!

    • As Amy! points out below, it is one of the Rules for Commenting Radicals that we do not wish violence or death upon people, no matter how vile.

      I’m sure most of us have brushed up against that line once or twice.

      Also too: Don’t like how we mod? It’s not a FEMA Camp, you’re free to wander off. But as long as you are here, you’ll make like The Dude, and abide. By the rules, that is.

      • GOPvsUSA

        Truth stings a bit, eh? I’m surprised you didn’t remove the warning I posted to others too.

        But I’m not surprised that you would be hypocritical enough to let all sorts of other posts similar to mine – with five times the profanity – remain uncontested.

        I’m sure you’ll get right on them now that I pointed that out, right?

        Now here’s how this works … As long as I don’t care what condescending mods like you think, I’ll continue to “abide” by my own rules.

        See, condescending tones don’t work with me. As I’m sure you can tell, I just don’t intimidate anywhere near that easily.

        You’re free to ban me and I’m free to not give a shit and laugh as I “wander off”.

        Now are we clear on this? Or do we need to discuss this over a White Russian or two?

        I’m almost sorry I had to diminish your aura of superiority in the eyes of others here. I say “almost” because it’s worth the horrendous ban that’s sure to follow and change my life forever!!!

    Hooray for “Trickle Down”! Instead of those tax dollars going for frivolous roads and schools, rich psychopath Dr. Walter Palmer had the extra cash to pay off his fine for illegal hunting, quickly and quietly settle his sexual harassment suit, and fly around the world killing endangered species and trickling that wealth right down into the hands of needy poachers – in foreign countries. Thanks, Republicans for making sure that more of that wealth is kept in the hands of our betters, who know how to use it and out of the filthy mouths of hungry food stamp children.

    Shooting predators, such as lions, cannot in any way be considered sport because they’re ridiculously easy to kill. They’re the danger to other species and never in danger themselves. They have no sense of fear at the approach of humans. This guy got close enough to shoot a lion with a bow and arrow. What does that tell you about how easy it was to do that? And with a lion this close to being tame, it likely approached the killer instead of the other way around.

    Sport?! Are you fucking kidding me?

    • Hari Krishna

      sport happens between two parties where each has a fair chance at winning. so yes, this could have been a sport if our stud had gone for his hunt with his bare hands. I mean, the lion was so tame and used to human contact that even if this guy had gone to him with the intent to kill, he’d have licked him up like a puppy. these things keep happening again and again so often that it’s sickening.

      • david green

        I’ve always thought that these folks who hunt predators, and claim to be sportsmen, ought to want to make it more sporting. Since they are endowed with these huge brains (just ask them), they should be required to hunt naked except for shoes, armed with a knife of their choice. And to make it really sporting, a pork chop tied around their neck.

  • This dentist paid to hunters to kill another animal, and tie the fresh kill to their car and drive slowly away from the national park so that Cecil would follow them out of the park. The dentist then shot, but did not kill Cecil. His paid hunters tracked the wounded and weakened Cecil for hours and killed him with their rifles. They then beheaded and skinned Cecil and brought his trophy back to Palmer. Kind of makes this dentist look like a real stud, doesn’t it.
    Previously, Palmer was convicted in 2003 of fishing without a license, then in 2008 of poaching a black bear in Wisconsin (the actual poaching was in 2006, but it took awhile to convict him since he lied about it to the fish and wildlife service), and in 2009 he settled a sexual harassment suit by his receptionist for 127,500 although without admitting his guilt. Palmer also brags of over 40 kills of deer, caribou, buffalo, moose, and polar bears on his safari international profile page. This guy sounds like an absolute peach.

    • Mehmeisterjr

    Dok, point of information?

    I know we don’t do comments…if Wonkette allowed them…suggesting violence on anyone, but what if someone proposed that a dental procedure be performed on Doc Palmer…and boy does that name raise flags…anyway, that his teeth all be extracted, one root at a time, in one sitting?

    Without anesthesia, of course.

    Does that count as violence?

    • Shoto

      With “Marathon Man” votes.

    • cleos_mom

      Elsewhere I posted a similar suggestion: that he get a complete dental overhaul performed by the most incompetent dentist the National Dental Association can find.

    • nozferat

      Wonkette is lame it seems.

  • Dylan Black

    Man, looks like I missed a fun time on this post.

    Nobody should wish for violence or death for this man. Just like with george zimmerman, we should instead wish for him to have an extraordinarily long and lucid life, whether it be rotting in jail in zimbabwe or living here among the broken tatters of his once-successful dentist practice.

    THAT would be the more fitting punishment.

    • nozferat

      Why not? This man deserves what he should get. If he goes to jail in Zimbabwe and gets raped hopefully multiple times, you think he’ll reformed? Or come out worse?

    • cessnadriver

      The US will prosecute people who travel to other countries for sex tourism even if that country allows it all nice and legal like. Perhaps a way can be found to prosecute this putz on the basis of the fact that he traveled to a foreign country to commit a crime in that area.

      The FACT that they baited the prey (one step above killing an animal in a cage) out of a preserve proves guilt. Add to that the destruction of the GPS device….

      They must have panicked when the arrow didn’t kill the lion.

  • Katie Doyle

    Bet this has been fan Tastic! For his dental practice. People hate to go to the dentist anyway. Now they have the perfect excuse to vent all that hatred.

    • cessnadriver

      If he keeps his license he’ll be OK. Every repig everywhere will travel 1,000’s of miles to be treated by this death-fetish pervert.

      • jmk

        Nope… he closed his practice, poor little dental-ass. I’m sure it was a practical matter, though… hard to bill insurance companies for twice-a-year cleanings from his jail cell in Zimbabwe.

  • Shoto

    I’m thinking “Off to the Hague with you, “Dr. Faps-With-Little-Dick,” (That’s his huntin’ name.)

    • cessnadriver

      I prefer “Faps with Tweezers”.

      • Shoto

        Good point.

  • Poindexter

    I don’t think this account mentioned the part that most got my dander up: Poor Cecil staggered around for 40 hours with Fetid Pistule DDS’s arrow stuck in him before they caught up and finished him off. If you’re going to travel halfway around the world to indulge your sick hobby, at least be professional about it and use the right tools.
    I wonder if this sadistic walking colostomy bag also uses a variable speed cordless Makita drill on his patients in the name of being “sporting”?

  • Melisande

    Poindexter– I agree. The tragic, outrageous, horrifically murderous & inhumane act
    on the part of this exotic animal killer is made more heinous by this additional
    information of the out-and-out torture. The beautiful Lion, Cecil, simply had
    a right to live an unfettered life in his own country, territory and landscape
    no matter what his status. The fact that he was a protected lion, a part of a
    study, and was ‘lured’ from his safe haven in order to commit this atrocity to
    destroy him, makes it all the more horrific, and devastating. This cretin is
    disgusting and pathetic and I do hope he lives to suffer the ills of endless
    believe his claims of regret one whit either! The authorities ought to confiscate
    and bury the remains, respectfully.

      Good Babby Kitteh!

  • T-Bag

    Love the comments. You mad bro? lol… Chill out, its just 1 less lion in the world.

    • Plus it gives the next lion in line a chance to get some lioness nookie. Cecil was hogging all the ladies for himself. He had it coming.

      • Tansy Geek

        After killing this year’s cubs. And I’ll bet you get all riled up about the millions of babies killed every second by abortions.
        Edit: my spellcheck tried to capitalize Cubs, like that poor Chicago sports all needs to be murdered by wild animals.

        • Nature doesn’t offend me. Neither does abortion. It’s odd that you’d conflate the two, but this is the internet after all. Have a cheeseburger and bask in your hypocrisy.

          • StrangerInAStrangeLand1

            What hypocrisy? Did he kill to eat the lion and feed himself? He killed Cecil the lion to feed his VANITY and SHALLOW EGO. No. Walter Palmer, and all the other Big Game Hunters are nothing more than lowlife animal assassins.

          • T-Bag

            “Animal assassin”….Nice! I think I have a new user name.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Just change the “T” to a “D” and you’re all set. Bro.

          • Tansy Geek

            Gracias, señor. See above convo.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            De nada.

          • T-Bag

            LOL truly a nice burn. Should have seen that one coming.

          • H0mer0

            that is soooo sad! the “Cecil” trusted humans and they betrayed him. I’ll let karma take care of this one.

          • Tansy Geek

            Not conflating, projecting. I assumed you were a faux libertarian. Mayhaps you are the real deal. Although why you assume I am a vegetarian I don’t know. Or why you are wasting you’re time on a blog that doesn’t allow comments on a post about a dick who illegally killed a protected alpha predator. At this point, I am uncertain why I am posting a reply. More liquor is required. I’ll get back to you and we can make more incorrect assumptions about each other.

        • jviscont1

      IKR, all those lions are always knocking over my garbage cans and eating the cat food. Oh wait, those are raccoons. Never mind. Dick.

      • T-Bag

        That’s some pretty thick sarcasm. You mad? Better keep your cute little cat off my lawn or I will give it the Cecil treatment. hahaha

        • Tansy Geek

          Is that your best line? You mad, bro? That’s some pretty weak verbiage. Plus points for recognizing sarcasm but minus points for random riduculous threats. Unless by giving my virtual nonexistent cat “the Cecil treatment” you mean you’ll put a collar on it, in which case, that’s nice.

          • T-Bag

            You must have went to college.

          • Tansy Geek

            Nah mang. I just give hand jobs to professors, much like yourself no doubt. You mad yet bro?
            PS. I apologize Dok. I know I shouldn’t play with uninspired trolls, I won’t do it again.

          • T-Bag

            You are right about the trolling. I love pissing off the bleeding hearts of the world. Hope you are able to save the world with your key board.

          • Dylan Black

            Enjoy your brief moment of trolling, you sad, sad little man. The cleanup crew will no doubt be by shortly to wipe your bullshit off of this site. We have standards, unlike yourself.

        • jmk

          Sorry about your penis, bro. Must be like a babby’s pinkie if you feel the need to troll about killing things.

  • ca_rickf

    What a dick thing to do Palmer. ?

  • I’m surprised to find so many self-righteous vegetarians on the internet of all places.

    • cessnadriver

      I am surprised (no, not really) of the idiocy of RWAC’s who would defend this horrible “person”. Because the average repig has no intellect.

  • Anyway, you know what’s really brave, majestic and noble?
    Being part of an internet mob.

    • Zippy

      Sure beats being the asshole who defends another asshole

      • jmk

        Well, Zippy, I guess needledicks feel like they have to stick together…so this guy feels like he has to defend that asshole.

        • natoslug

          If we get a few more together, we can assemble the worlds worst smelling wind tunnel.

  • nathan

    Americans should stick to killing each other with guns.
    It’s much more amusing.

    • Todd Gakk

      But only if they eat what they kill.

  • rebecca

    I agree with my dad: I don’t think it’s immoral to hunt, so long as you actually eat what you kill. I just don’t understand why you’d want to.

    • OneDemin EOr

      That’s what makes Dr. Dickhead’s brand of “hunting” so ludicrous. Trophy animals get to be trophy animals because they live so long. They don’t taste good when they’re old. Their ability to outlive their brethren make them valuable members of the gene pool. That’s what makes Dr. Dickhead and his ilk such jerks.

  • Todd Gakk

    Is this a girl site? I see emotions taking precedence over reason.

    • Objectifer

      Nope, it’s a vile, nasty little snark mob. We have boys and girls and those of flexible gender. Welcome new friend!

    • Dylan Black

      Thats weird, since “emotions over reason” seems to be Trump’s motto, yet he claims to be a man?

      • Tansy Geek

        The whole effing GOP. I’m too lazy too look for it but recently a fellow wonketteer had a link to a nice short explanation of the origins of the GOP fear beats policy plan for winning elections. Apparently Phyllis Schafley, a harpy who gives harpies a bad name, played a large part.

    • H0mer0

      is that an insult? I am a girl and I come here.

    • JMPesq

      Is this a misogynist prick? I see “girl” used as if it’s an insult, followed by boilerplate misogynist memes.

      • Zippy

        I’m betting Todd’s wee widdle willie jumped to attention at the thought of interacting with real live female humans without having to pay upfront for a change

    • Now now, let’s hear him out because now I am curious. So Todd, please explain what is “reasonable” about gratuitously murdering animals to showcase how “manly” you are Please spell out what logical principle we are missing here.

    • Lizzietish81

      Yes…and we have cooties

  • Bill V.

    Really bad karma for the dickhead dentist, and of course he had to be from America. Ugh!

  • By the way, am I the only one to notice that this really doesn’t sound like a hunt? Given that they baited the animal to be led to the slaughter, it seems more like a shooting gallery after a major reduction of targets.

    • Tansy Geek

      And Dr. Palmer DDM had other people do all the hard work of tracking the lion while he bled out over the course of several days. Real hunters are disgusted by this kind of nonsense.

      • RockyMissouri

        EXACTLY. !!

    • Reximus

      it was an execution

      • ca_rickf

        Yup.

    • ca_rickf

      It’s what weak men with small penises do, and also drive monster trucks.

    • Blendawendy

      It’s what they call a canned hunt. Seriously. They have those.

  • Thelonious Mac

    There is a special kind of hell for someone who can pay $56000 to kill an animal. I could feed some small countries on $56000. Everyone is entitled to do with their wealth as they please, but somethings are particularly heinous and utterly soulless.

    His excuse? “They told me it was legal.” The excuse betrays how far from being human this scum is.

    Did he offer to sponsor more lions, more security for the zone? NO.

    I wonder if it made him feel manly and powerful. He’s nothing but a soulless coward.

    Anyone who hunts for sport is a coward.

    • AuroraErratic

      The LAST time he was caught hunting illegally he claimed he thought it was legal also…40 miles from the legal boundary. This guy is a sack of shit with legs. A sack of shit that lies.

    • Inclement Weather

      So cats just be cowards then.

  • Thelonious Mac

    I knew that someday, there would be something that I agreed with Wonket about. It had to happen. I just wish it had been something else like toothpaste brands.

  • Blank Ron

    If this poster boy for retroactive abortion wanted to kill defenseless Africans without fear of censure, why didn’t he just become a cop?

  • Keith Cassinger

    I have absolutely no sympathy for this piece of trash. He’s in hiding now under some rock somewhere. I truly hope and pray his clients all abandon him and he has to hide for the rest of his pathetic life.

    • Inclement Weather

      Why because he did what lions often do? Kill for fun?

      • Keith Cassinger

        Kill for fun? Another dime-a-dozen troll. Also, last time I looked lions don’t use shotguns moron. Frickin troll.

        • Inclement Weather

          He didn’t use a shotgun either. I’m all for animal rights and would never hunt myself or support hunting really…. but I’ve found the reaction to this story to be way over the top.

          • Keith Cassinger

            Howmis it “over the top? ” The man is a moron and a coward. And quite frankly, I don’t really give a rats ass what you have to say either. So go away.

          • Keith Cassinger

            You’re not for animal rights or any other rights. You’re a troll who tries to create controversy by finding something to go “against” and proceed to sit in your dark basement and type away. So, did he use a gun? You knew what I meant a$$hat, but of course as a troll you say stupid coward comments. I am certain you got and get your a$$ kicked at school, home doing your chores for your parents and on the playground. Too bad no woman will ever love you. Except for your Mom, she’ll back you no matter type of a$$hole you truly are.

          • Inclement Weather

            rofl. Actually, you sound more like a troll/asshole than I do

          • Keith Cassinger

            Like I expected another analysis from the jagoff you are.

          • Keith Cassinger

            Nah, I’m fairly certain you’re king of the douchebags.

    Not a supporter of hunting like this, but let’s not pretend that cats are particularly kind to other animals. How many antelope lives were saved? Don’t like hunting much but people have hyperventilated over this long enough

  • Donnie Robertson

    HUMANS DIE and these “protestors” sit at home, drink wine, eat cheese and finger their pets! A stinking lion is croaked and they are all pissed off; BFD people! Leave the ‘dentist’ alone and perhaps when you need it he will assist in filling that VOID inyer gawd damned heads!

    • Jmack

      Who gives a FUCK about humans? There are over 6 billion humans and only 20,000 lions left on this earth. People can kill each other all they want. But Cecil did nothing to deserve this.
