CHARGES DROPPED: American Dentist Cleared In #CecilTheLion Drama

Published on

It looks like the PETA lunatics didn’t get what they wanted.

Zimbabwe has charged a second man in connection to the killing of Cecil the lion, but his name is not Walter Palmer.

Prosecutors on Tuesday accused Zimbabwean farmer Honest Ndlovu of allowing the American dentist to hunt Cecil on his land without the required permission, the Associated Press reported.

He faces one year in prison or a $400 fine, his attorney, Tonderai Mukuku, told the AP.

Ndlovu is the second Zimbabwean charged in the case after professional hunter Theo Bronkhorst was arraigned on July 29.

Officials believe Bronkhorst lured the aging lion out of Hwange National Park and onto Ndlovu’s Antoinette Farm, which is separated from the protected park by only a railway track. Once Cecil was on the farmland, Palmer allegedly shot the animal with a bow and arrow before later finishing him off by gunshot. The lion was then beheaded and skinned.
