I have spent the last 12 years studying, writing, and teaching about African animals, and my impression is that most people are equally superficial in their caring about both humans and wildlife.

White Supremacy and Devaluation of African [Heritage] Lives

Warren J. Blumenfeld

The philosophy and practice of white supremacy devalues all African and African heritage lives whether human or non-human animal. White supremacy links slavery in the "Americas" with the ongoing police killings of unarmed black people and to the killing of animals on the continent of Africa.

Apparently a Lion Is More Valuable Than Any Zimbabwean -- Myself Included

The killing of Cecil the Lion, tragic as it might be to some, has laid bare some key issues that warrant further discussion. Few -- if any -- of these people rallying for ol' Cecil have shown their public concern and care for Zimbabweans.

The death of Cecil brought hunting into acute focus for many folks that rarely give more than a passing thought to hunters or hunting until someone with gun pulls a bonehead move. And now hunting is reexamined as proper modern human behavior in the court of public opinion.

Let's Hope Cecil Was Not Slaughtered for Naught

As a vegetarian, I see promise in the indignation and sorrow people were experiencing. Cecil's death was not the Disney Circle of Life ending we expect for creatures this majestic and regal. Nevertheless, I have a feeling that Cecil the Lion was not slaughtered for naught. Let's see.

What Will Be Cecil the Lion's Legacy? And Who Should Decide?

Let's go back to Hwange National Park, the scene of Cecil's demise. The Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, responsible for managing this park, derived most of its income for wildlife conservation across the country from trophy hunting. Let us mourn Cecil, but be careful what we wish for.

Awareness alone isn't enough, especially when the sentimentally charged conversation happens in a void. So we talked to some of Africa's most trusted, most esteemed conservators about the practice of game hunting to set the record straight--the good, the bad, and the (often incredibly) ugly.

Why Everyone Is Outraged By Cecil the Lion's Death

A master of deflective language, Walter Palmer either misses the point or just does not want to acknowledge it. He regrets earning the ire of anti-hunting community, but he does not regret trophy hunting. Walter Palmer doesn't even fully understand why everyone else is so outraged by what he did.

We need to think when we use words or symbols and keep them in perspective. Causes are good. Very good but let's not use symbols of past events and think they can apply to every situation. They just don't.

Killing Aslan

Aslan isn't coming back to save Narnia. And Simba isn't returning to Pride Rock. Palmer already stepped off the path and killed a butterfly, leaving us, after all the rage and yelling dies down, to just sit and wait for the eventual ramifications to unfold. And that train is never late.

Why The Internet Hate For Walter Palmer Matters

I am happy that this week I didn't have to discover that my crowns and root canals were funding a man who uses my money to kill the worlds most rare and beautiful creatures. That my veneers didn't help pay for the destruction of the last few white rhinos. Or that my cavity fillings were funding the slow and painful death of a spectacular male lion in Zimbabwe.

Tragedy of Cecil: Leader of Pride, Victim of Trophy Hunt

Jeffrey Flocken | Posted 07.29.2016 | Green

Living free in the wild, being admired -- not killed -- for their beauty is where these species true and only value should lie. Cecil brought in significant tourist dollars as a living, breathing icon. Now he is nothing more than a sad reminder of what greed and exploitation of wildlife can lead to.
