Dear PEOPLES BARK NEWS READER,

Cecil the lion, the patriarch and defender of a family of dozens of cubs, was recently killed by a Minnesota dentist who wanted a lion’s head on his wall. The above photograph of the 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.

Here’s what we know:

*
The dentist, Walter Palmer, along with his hunting party, tied a dead animal to a vehicle to lure Cecil out of the park.
*
He blinded Cecil with a spotlight and then shot him with a high-powered crossbow.
*
Cecil hid in the bush, no doubt suffering greatly from a steel arrow in his body.
*
When Cecil was found-40 hours later-the mighty white hunter shot him and had him beheaded and skinned.
*
Hunting is a coward’s pastime.

Here’s how you can help:

The United States must stop allowing the importation of lion heads, tails, and skins into the United States. To protect other lions like Cecil, please urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to issue a final rule listing lions as “threatened” and banning the importation of lion heads, tails, and skins in order to stop all trophy imports into the United States.
