Conflicting reports over killing of Cecil the lion’s ‘brother’

2 August 2015

JOHANNESBURG: Uncertainty surrounds the fate of another lion linked to Cecil, the beloved Zimbabwean lion slain by an American dentist whose killing caused a global outcry, after a conservation group reported that his “brother” Jericho had also been killed Saturday.

(FILES) - This handout picture taken on October 21, 2012 and released on July 28, 2015 by the Zimbabwe National Parks agency shows a much-loved Zimbabwean lion called Cecil. US authorities launched an investigation on July 31, 2015 into the killing of the lion, as the American dentist who hunted the big cat remained in hiding amid mounting global outrage. Trophy hunter Walter Palmer killed Cecil the lion earlier this month after the feline was allegedly lured out of the Hwange National Park boundaries with a dead animal as bait. The professional Zimbabwean hunter who organized the hunt has been charged in Zimbabwe with failing to prevent an illegal hunt.
