Along with so many people, including naturalists, celebrities, politicians and us regular folks, the recent and overtly gruesome death of this magnificent animal has caused thousands and thousands of us to respond in a very positive way. If enough of us petition the powers to be to make big game hunting illegal in Africa, than Cecil's death will have lost some of its sting. No amount of money should override the killing of any endangered species specifically, and Africa's big game in general. In the meantime, Palmer and his guides must to go to trial in Zimbabwe and pay the maximum penalty including prison time. These animals brought into the US as trophy mounts should be made illegal. I hope these changes will be in our near-future. I will support any effort in this endeavor.
