justme ! says:

They've already reversed the decision to temporary ban the hunting in the Hwange area… Gareth Patterson is the True Lion Man.  RIP Cecil, RIP Batian, Gareth's lion boy killed many years ago about the same way they killed Cecil.

Yak says:

Hunting should only be of non – threatened species and only for food. Trophy hunting is really a colonialist thing. It's barbaric and doesn't belong in this century.

Im happy this has happened, but shouldn't they ban the recreational hunting of ALL animals???
