Betty White is Furious Over the Killing of Cecil the Lion

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Betty White, a passionate animal activist, has harsh words for the Minnesota dentist who killed Cecil the lion while on a hunting trip in Zimbabwe this month.

`You don`t want to hear some of the things I want to do to that man,` the 93-year-old actress told The Associated Press on Thursday.

`It`s such a heartbreaker. You can`t even talk about it, and to see this king of the jungle and personifying it in every way, this gorgeous creature. How can somebody do that?`

Cecil was drawn from a wildlife preserve and shot by American hunter Walter James Palmer on July 1. Palmer is believed to have shot the lion with a bow and then the wounded cat was tracked for 40 hours before he killed it with a gun."

Betty White is perhaps America`s most beloved actress, she`s won our hearts over decades with iconic roles in sitcoms like The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Golden Girls, Mama`s Family, and more recently Hot in Cleveland.

If I ever have the pleasure of meeting White, I imagine she would pinch my cheeks, offer me a cookie and a cup of milk, and tell me a slightly raunchy joke.

White has two passions in life, acting and animal rights, and this sweet old lady was livid over the sadistic and cruel killing of Cecil the Lion.

Anybody who upsets this kind and compassionate lady to such an extent deserves to rot in hell. I`m sure Walter Palmer`s final destination will be hell, but he deserves to be punished in this life as well. Extradite this cruel man to Zimbabwe, and let him answer for his despicable act.
