In his first interview since sparking international outrage over the killing of the black-maned lion, Walter Palmer told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he would be back at his dentistry practice on Tuesday.

The trophy hunter said that he and the others in his party had no clue that the 13-year-old lion they were hunting was the revered big cat that has been a well-known attraction at the Hwange National Park, according to the paper.
