Protesters Find Vacation Home Of Lion-Killing Dentist, Act Accordingly
After seeing photos of Walter Palmer's vacation home in Florida, I have to ask -- how much do dentists make? He's got that huge home in Eden Prairie, a vacation mansion in Florida, goes on $50,000 lion hunts ... teeth are big business? Teeth are big business.
So protesters somehow found Dr. Palmer's vacation home, and left classy, forgiving notes to him for killing Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe last month. Just kidding: they scrawled this on his garage door.
Also, they left orange pigs' feet on his driveway, and spelled out "KILLER" with stuffed animals on the walkway to his house. Not sure out that first thing -- don't pigs need their feet?
Anyway, when you sign up for unbridled international scorn, you get pigs' feet. It's all part of the service.
Meanwhile, it's being reported that Palmer had planned to kill an elephant after gunning down Cecil. One of the guides that Palmer employed said this in an interview with the London Telegraph.
But not just any elephant. Palmer specifically wanted a huge elephant, one with tusks weighing 63 pounds each. Bronkhorst told him he couldn't find him an elephant that large, so Palmer went home empty-handed, he said.
Holy crap. Elephant hunting can't be legal, can it? Sadly, it is.
But today United Airlines became the latest carrier to ban "big-game" hunting trophies from their flights, joining Delta Airlines, which on Monday announced the same ban, and a host of foreign airlines who have had bans for some time. And many African countries have put a hold on game hunting entirely.
Hunters, it seems, won't kill an animal if they can't bring some of the parts back home -- funny, because most of them justify their actions by saying that it's all about "the thrill of the hunt."
Palmer is wanted by U.S. Fish & Wildlife for questioning, but they still can't find him. He's going to have to surface sooner or later, however, because he has at least two homes to support.
