Cecil the Lion cubs

Cecil the Lion’s cubs are in danger. Cecil, who was poached and beheaded by an American dentist last month, helped protect his cubs along with his brother Jericho and the pride’s lioness. But one of the cubs was killed by another lion in a Zimbabwe national park, the NY Post reports.

Walter James Palmer

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.
