3 Things to Know About Cecil the Lion


Cecil the lion was 13 years old when he was lured from his park and killed by two hunters for sport. They used to kill lions for resources or because they were attacking a village but now it has boiled down to killing them for sport or using their head as their trophy. No action was taken to punish the hunters since the lion was not killed in a protected area, even though it was lured out of his protected area.
