    ****, they even vandalized his house in FL!

    Vandals hit Florida home of dentist who killed Cecil the Lion


    Vandals targeted Dr. Walter Palmer’s Marco Island home in response to Palmer killing Cecil the Lion, FOX 4 reports.

    The words “Lion Killer” were found spray-painted on the garage door, along with pigs feet scattered on the driveway and animal crackers on his lawn. Walter Zalisko, an investigator hired to protect Palmer’s vacation home, said the vandals appeared to damage only the outside of the house, the Naples Daily News reports.

    “We have people from our office stopping by periodically to check on the property,” Zalisko told the Naples Daily News. “Apparently someone came in late last night or early in the morning and vandalized it.”

    Palmer admitted to killing Cecil on a hunting trip but claimed he didn’t know the lion was protected and “considered a national treasure,” FOX 4 reports. He has been in hiding ever since.

    Others have come to the home to protest by putting signs and stuffed animals in his yard, according to the Naples Daily News. Zalisko’s company, Global Investigative Group, will be putting security cameras outside the home and “armed investigators will also be on the property at different times of day,” Zalisko said.

    Marco Island Police opened a misdemeanor criminal mischief investigation after receiving several calls about vandalism.

    “We knew the background information and about the potential problems that could occur at the home when something like this happens,” Marco Island Police Capt. David Baer told the Naples Daily News.

    That's pretty mild vandalism.
    I have never seen live bones, but I know that they are often used by rich people to decorate the interior.

    I'd be honored if they wrote 'Duck Killer!" on my house.

    More of advertising of where he lives in the area.

    Looks like the guy had a pretty successful practice, wonder if he'll be able to get his client base back.

    Is baiting the same as trolling?

    No but is very similar to "chumming". Baiting has long been an accepted way of taking big cats in Africa dating well back into the 19th century. If you don't like it don't do it. Cancel your safari or insist on a strictly "spot and stalk" hunt. It's your money (or the evil dentist money) to spend and Zimbabwe will be glad to have some of it in exchange for one of their sustainable population of lions. Good luck. Post pictures:wink

    They can paint "Turkey Killer" on our garage (sometimes).

    Add - Beware - if you do anchor over a reef and lay down a chum line (bait) better hope you don't bring in a fish named "the beloved something". I'm certain many divers will have already seen/photographed this extra special fish you just brought to possession and it won't matter if you took it legally or not. Buy extra paint for your garage door if you happen to catch "Gary the Beloved Grouper". Is this fun or what. What a circus.

    I love this stuff and all of these liberal Nancy boys. If you want to be mad at someone, be mad at the country that is selling the tags. They are more than happy to sell a tag for 25k to shoot a lion, but they want to extradite you because you shot the wrong lion! "he was famous!" :cry Lions are not endangered and they have been hunted for years. Hey,, here is a tag to shoot a killer whale, "OH GOD YOU KILLED SHAMU, SHAME SHAME SHAME" . If you want to see big game animals go extinct in record time, make them illegal to hunt. When the hunters stop paying big bucks to hunt them, the only game in town will be the Asians. When the big game hunters money is gone how are they going to pay to protect the animals from the poachers? They wont.

    P.S. I don't hunt at all unless you consider poking a flounder with a gig hunting. I also would not have killed that lion or any other. If you want to play 50k to shoot an animal that is not endangered that is your business, not mine.
