Jimmy Kimmel Berates Death of Cecil the Lion

Jimmy Kimmel is upset over a Minnesota Dentist’s killing of Cecil the Lion. The lion was lured outside of a game reserve in Zimbabwe and shot by the dentist with a bow and arrow. Cecil did not die immediately and had to be tracked and shot with a firearm some 40 hours later. The dentist, known to have killed big game animals in the past, is the target of a great deal of public anger as the story goes viral in the US and abroad.

Cecil the Lion was wearing a radio tracking collar at the time of his death. Something that the hunter did not know at the time of the shooting. Kimmel expressed the frustration of many who cannot grasp the senseless killing of animals for enjoyment.

Kimmel asked for donations wildlife preservation group who had previously been keeping track of the lion. To donate, visit http://www.wildcru.org/
