CECIL THE LION AND HIS CUBS
Don’t forget about him
Cecil was a 13-year-old male Southwest African lion (Panthera leo bleyenberghi) who primarily lived in the Hwange National Park in Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe. He was a major attraction at the park and was being studied and tracked by the University of Oxford as part of a larger study.
Cecil was wounded with an arrow by Walter Palmer, an American recreational big-game hunter, was then tracked, and on 1 July 2015, approximately 40 hours later, killed with a rifle.
The killing drew international media attention and sparked outrage among animal conservationists, politicians and celebrities, as well as a strong negative response against Palmer. Two other men are being prosecuted in relation to the hunt, and the Zimbabwean government has stated it will seek Palmer’s extradition.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’

PALMER’S DENTAL CLINIC REOPENS
Only ONE Brave Lady Came Out to Protest the Reopening of Palmer’s Dental Clinic
She needs your help!
With the opening of the clinic, only ONE protester came out to protest. Brenda Spencer was the only protester standing in the parking lot with a sign waving at the patients going into the clinic. Thank you Brenda! I’m sure Cecil was proud of your courage and dedication to the animal kingdom.
