PETA Calls for the Execution of the Dentist Who Killed Cecil the Lion

By Robert Paul Reyes

"People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are calling for the death of Walter Palmer, the Minnesota dentist who hunted down and killed Cecil the Lion.

`Hunting is a coward`s pastime,` PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement Wednesday. `If, as has been reported, this dentist and his guides lured Cecil out of the park with food so as to shoot him on private property, because shooting him in the park would have been illegal, he needs to be extradited, charged, and, preferably, hanged.`

Zimbabwe`s most famous and beloved lion was found skinned and decapitated outside a national park on the outskirts of Hwange last month after Palmer reportedly paid $50,000 to shoot him with a crossbow and rifle."


No crime in recent history has sparked as much outrage as the brutal and cowardly killing of Cecil the Lion.

This is not another example of faux Internet outrage, Walter Palmer the demented and sadistic dentist who killed Cecil is the most despised man in the world. Celebrities, politicians and regular folks have unleashed their disgust at the killing of this noble beast on social media platforms.

Perhaps the only way to stop the controversial presidential campaign of Donald Trump dead in its tracks is for one of his opponents to come out in favor of the death penalty for Palmer.

PETA has a history of controversial stunts and advertising campaigns, but even some hunters are endorsing PETA`s call for Palmer to be executed.

The only real question is: How should Palmer be put to death?

Tarred, feathered, run out of town, and then be set on fire at the city dump?

Skinned alive and beheaded?

Impaled with a dentist`s drill?

Boiled alive?

Have the cretin stripped naked, and then have PETA members hunt him down with a crossbow?

Tossed into a lions` den?

Please join this cathartic exercise by sending me your ideas on how this monster should be executed!
