Officials in Zimbabwe say the American who killed a prized lion there will not be charged. A cabinet minister said today Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer had obtained legal authority to conduct the hunt.
The killing of Cecil the Lion sparked outrage as Palmer reportedly paid a guide 50-thousand dollars to lure the lion away from a sanctuary. Palmer has maintained he thought he was hunting the lion legally. The cabinet minister said today all of Palmer's papers were in order.
