Cecil the lion and Cecile the CEO

Weep for Cecil but remember he's an animal; pray for Cecile and remember she's killing human babies and getting paid for it.

The killing of Cecil the lion has been at the forefront of international outrage regarding big game hunting and now the Obama administration says they will join in helping investigate his death. The Hill reports that the administration is “ready to take action” and offer support to the Zimbabwean government. Earlier this month, American dentist Walter Palmer killed Cecil outside a Zimbabwean park.

Laury Parramore, a spokesman for the Fish and Wildlife Service said, “The Service is deeply concerned about the recent killing of Cecil the lion. We are currently gathering facts about the issue and will assist Zimbabwe officials in whatever manner requested. It is up to all of us — not just the people of Africa — to ensure that healthy, wild populations of animals continue to roam the savanna for generations to come.”

Although it is wonderful that the Obama administration has strong convictions about the killing of animals, it is unbelievable that this concern outweighs the trafficking of baby body parts by Planned Parenthood.

Doesn’t Zimbabwe, which allows big game hunts, have any other problems Obama needs to be concerned about?  Poverty?  Disease?  Education?  He’s done zip for Africa.  Far less than Bush or Clinton during their terms in office.

I've been to Zimbabwe and legal, permitted hunting drives much of their economy. The only thing I used to shoot at animals was my camera, but I totally get it. This is one of the poorest countries in earth with no real resources except their animals. Believe me, there is no shortage of Cape buffalo, lions, leopards, elephants and the like. As much as it might disgust us first worlders, big game hunting sustains the local populations and gives them jobs. Cat
