The report reveals that Walter James Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota in the United States, is believed to have paid an estimated USD $50 000 to shoot and kill the lion. Palmer’s weapon of choice was, according to the report, a bow and arrow.

According to traveller24, Palmer reportedly has a hunting felony history, and is also facing charges for the illegal hunting Cecil the lion – although Palmer issued a statement saying he was under the impression the hunt was legal, until the very end. Local authorities in Zimbabwe alleged that the lion was lured from a protected area and killed.

A petition has also been launched online which calls on Zimbabwe’s president Robert Gabriel Mugabe to stop issuing hunting permits to kill endangered animals.
