Dentist Apologizes for Killing Cecil the Lion

Dr. Walter J. Palmer, the American dentist who allegedly killed Cecil the Lion, regrets his role in this animal's death. Protesters have gathered outside Dr. Palmer's Bloomington, Minn., dental practice, which according to local news affiliate Fox 9, will likely remain closed through the end of this week. Dr. Palmer wrote a letter to his patients apologizing for the disruption and attempting to explain how he unknowingly killed a protected animal during his big game hunt in Zimbabwe.
