The disgraced Minnesota dentist who became infamous after killing Cecil The Lion for sport earlier this summer will finally return to work, and he’s spoken out for the first time since the incident.
“If I had know this lion had a name and was important to the country or a study obviously I wouldn’t have taken it,” Dr. Palmer told the AP. He also disputed claims that the lion had wandered wounded for 40 hours, noting it was just one day. Wow, what a major difference. He also revealed he killed Cecil with a bow and arrow, but would not disclose how much he paid for the hunt.
Crowds of angry people protested outside of his dental office for weeks following the killing, but apparently it has died down, and he will return to work tomorrow.
