Definitely puts it in perspective.

I wonder exactly what people are pissed about, conservation? Like the article you posted mentioned yesterday Cecil was up in age.
Was the hunter specifically aiming to kill an elderly lion?
I thought lions were endangered and that you weren't supposed to hunt them at all.
But it's no excuse for a big uproar, in any case.

The article Frost posted says that the man paid 50,000 dollars in permits, so I assume the hunt was legal if that's what you're asking. Unless he bought permits for a different animal* or from someone not associated with whatever Zimbabwe's version of the department of fish and wildlife is.

As far as looking for elderly lions I heard the guides are supposed to do that, wish I knew more I can only speculate. If I had to guess the price of the permit probably reflects how few are issued, which I think speaks for their efforts to conserve the creatures. If the guides are agents of the department of fish and wildlife then I'd guess they do attempt to find the elderly lions.

But of course that's all just me guessing.

*Heard that could be the case but I only heard it from one source. The source also suggested it was the guide's fault.

Well shit, the hunt might have been illegal. Still looking through articles to verify. (specifically ignoring ones that say "Death of beloved lion" they obviously seem to be pandering for the click dollar) Though to be fair I doubt the social media outrage has anything to do with the legality of the hunt.

Lions aren't categorized as 'Endangered' yet; and certainly weren't at the time of the hunt. The main issue was that he thought the hunt was legal, unaware that the lion had wandered off a game reserve. Apparently, if anyone, his locally-hired guide was at fault. But he's not an Evil Rich White Man, so you can't blame him.

Well, if they weren't endangered,then that really should close the issue. The fact that he paid someone $50,000 isn't really an excuse for ignorance of the law as they apply in his country of origin, otherwise. I'm certain there are countries that would let you get away with a great many things if you paid them $50,000 first.

What remains of the legal issues is that the lion was from a reservation, but was shot while it was off the reservation. Palmer's story is that he didn't know it was from a reservation and many say Cecil just wandered off, while others say Palmer baited him off (which, if he were going to do, I doubt he'd pay $50,000 for)

Yeah, and doubtless that kind of question arises every time something's killed anywhere near a reservation.

You'd think $50,000 could cover some kinda "hunter's insurance". Much like buying insurance from the rental car place allows you to move on hassle-free if you get in an accident while the dealer handles the legal issues, there should be an insurance to protect such big game hunters should Greenpeace or whatever catch word and raise a stink.

This potential legal situation is easily forseable so there should be a way to streamline it or forgo it entirely.

I'd have to look into it more, but I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case--by all appearances, this is at worst an unfortunate mistake that Palmer and US/Zimbabwean authorities could have smoothed out with the worst case being a fine or probation, possible prohibition from returning to Zimbabwe (with likely leniency from the fact that it's a mistake).

But now the court of public opinion has their filthy, cavity-ridden teeth on it and they'd like to condemn without evidence and without due process. Because everyone likes law and order until it gets in the way of what they want.

In the US the three most hated occupations (by those outside of the careers) are probably lawyers, politicians, and cops.

No, I do not think everyone particularly "likes" law and order. We take the thing for granted and anyone actually a part of the process is as hated as possible within the bounds of the process itself.

Poor choice of words, then--my point being the hypocrisy of it all.

They hate cops, but nine times of ten are the first ones to call or threaten to call the cops when things don't go their way.

They hate and deeply mistrust the politicians that they, themselves, voted into office.

They hate lawyers until someone offends them slightly, then they'll threaten to sue.

The crowd calling for Palmer to be ostracized, brutalized, or simply harshly punished for his actions are essentially spoiled children, looking for their chance to appear superior by condemning someone else--you'll note that there's hardly an outcry when 550--700 per year are attacked by lions, but now one of those poor, cute widdle kitty cats is dead, so there should be an uproar.

Good points on most of that, less so with the polititians. We only barely elect for most federal positions. State governments, though... yeah.

In any case, you raise an interesting point. Lions attack humans. Why haven't we just killed them all? What value do the things bring to the world?
It's kinda one of those arguments of pragmatism vs... what, romantacism? Whatever causes us to still fund the arts (and sports?) when the same money could be used to research medicine and destroy our enemies.

Because, despite the environment improving steadily since the 1970's (when environmentalism and conservation really took off) people are still of this conception that the world will be utterly destroyed if the South Chilean Dung Beetle went extinct.

I would personally find it pretty hilarious to watch Disney's Lion King in a world where the things didn't exist anymore.
"The Circle of Life" song particularly.

I can imagine fan edits where the lions are just not there anymore. The animals all just bowing to a rock.

Getting conflicting reports myself. Some people are saying luring a lion off is illegal and shooting a collared lion is illegal. While others are saying that's simply not the case and the issue is that Palmer was told by the guides he hired that they had permits when they simply did not.

At least on the collaring issue I'm inclined to believe it's untrue. While it's not the freshest in my memory I remember watching a show years ago in which a hunter shot a bear and simply cut off the collar, while the people studying the bear were upset they only seemed to wish the collar had been returned to them.

For the sake of the story I imagine just those four will do, standing in for Mufasa, Scar, Simba, and Nala. The question is which is which?

@Last: the former scenario is what I've been hearing is Palmer's testimony as well--if it proves to be the case, then I'd imagine he wouldn't be subject to very heavy penalty (perhaps some fines). In any event, he's already contacted the (US) authorities. 

@Swick: This is turning into Marry, Fuck, Kill; Celebrity Edition.

Mufasa: Alexander the Great

Scar: Michael Jackson

Simba: Elvis

Nala: Vlad the Impaler

Now all that's left is to try and get the picture of Elvis and Dracula fucking out of your head.

Niiiiice. Only shame is that you're not getting Kvelertak and Anthrax, too, if my research is accurate (they're touring together but Slayer has a few solo shows or something).

@swicked/Frost
Which one was hotter, Alexander the Great or Vlad the Impaler? 'Cuz, like, if we're watching incest no matter what, I'd rather not see Elvis or Michael Jackson incest. Also, my understanding is that for European royalty this was already almost the norm, so at least it wouldn't be too weird for them.

YES! Though this trailer wasn't quite as exciting as the previous ones, probably because it was trying to be at least partially serious instead of completely silly.
