Jane Goodall Reacts to the Killing of Cecil the Lion

One of the most famous animal lovers of all time is speaking out about the tragic killing of Cecil the Lion.
Jane Goodall, renowned ethologist and the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, has posted a response to the senseless murder of a protected, beloved lion by Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer in Zimbabwe. Cecil was reportedly lured outside the park where it would be illegal to hunt him and was shot in the most cowardly fashion by Palmer, who is a known trophy hunter. Now, the 81-year-old UN Messenger of Peace released a statement on her website, urging people to mourn the death of Cecil but to also remember that there is one thing good thing that can come out of his terrible situation. And that one thing is the fact that the world got a rude awakening and is now more aware of the dangers that threatens our wildlife.
