The Dentist Who Killed ‘Cecil The Lion’ Is A Halloween Costume Now
Cecil the Lion was illegally hunted and gunned down by a dentist from Minnesota who was then forced to go into hiding after a worldwide backlash against him.
Sounds like the perfect Halloween costume, no?
One online costume shop thinks so, and their excuse for selling the costume is that 15% of the proceeds of the sales of the costume will go toward "a Wildlife Foundation." Which foundation? They didn't name one, so for all we know, Costumish.com set up a bank account named 'a Wildlife Foundation' and will put the proceeds there.
From the Costumish.com website:
"All Doctor Palmer wanted was to hang dead animals in his house, but what started as an obscure (if legally-dubious) hunting trip has since erupted into a brouhaha of trans-Atlantic proportions. 2015's most controversial killing has laid bare the rift in American and Zimbabwean attitudes toward exotic game hunting and animal conservation pitting an outraged mob against a Minnesotan dentist in a scandal sure to be remembered for a generation.
Our Cecil Lion Killer Dentist Costume features a severed lion's head mask, bloody smock, and bloody gloves for a gruesome, complete look."
