The Obama administration is considering a petition to extradite killer dentist Walter Palmer to South Africa to face charges of poaching.
Over 100,000 animal lovers signed the petition on the White House website. The petition asks the White House to force Palmer to face charges for luring Zimbabwe’s beloved Cecil the Lion from a protected game reserve and shooting the animal with a bow and arrow.
100K is the number of signatures required to get a response from the White House.
Palmer allegedly paid $55,000 to three tour guides to help him lure Cecil out of a national park by tying a dead animal to a Jeep.
The men hunted the bleeding lion for 40 hours before shooting him with a gun and beheading and skinning him. African officials seized the lion’s head as evidence.
After a London newspaper putted Palmer as the heartless big-game hunter who killed Cecile, Palmer released a statement claiming he had no knowledge that Cecil was protected. Park officials say Palmer removed a GPS collar from Cecil’s neck and hunted him at night — both violations of park rules.
In 2008, Palmer was convicted of poaching a bear then dragging the carcass off protected land.
Hundreds of animal lovers descended on Palmer’s River Bluff Dental practice in Bloomington, Minnesota. The business is closed for the rest of the week.

958,000 is roughly the number of viewers who tuned in to watch the series premiere of TLC’s reality TV show Sisterhood last Tuesday. In fact, the number of viewers who tuned in was so low that the show is not even listed on the TV ratings charts for shows that aired on January 1st.
Apparently, TLC’s decision to cut the check for a reality show that focuses on preacher’s wives was not a good move.
250 is the number of signatures reached on a petition to pressure TLC into canceling the show. But the petition might not be necessary.
I was waiting for Hip Hop apologist Russell Simmons to defend the latest incidence of senseless violence in Hip Hop, and Russell did not disappoint. Simmons is always quick to defend rappers who commit assault, rape and other offenses. This time he used a woman to do his dirty work for him.
In an editorial published on Simmons’ blog Global Grind, Evanka Williamson defended Chicago rapper Lil Reese’s actions in a viral video that shows him brutally beating a young woman last year. Reese is also under investigation in the shooting death of 16-year-old Chicago rapper Lil Jojo.
It’s worth noting that Lil Reese did not apologize for his violent behavior until radio program directors and DJs threatened to boycott his records.
