Letter: Cecil the lion

On the killing of Cecil the lion.

Killing for trophies. Mindless slaughter for the sake of your ego. Cecil wasn’t even killed cleanly before being decapitated. Cecil wasn’t “hunted,” he was lured to his three-arrow agony. And this by a medical professional no less. Cause no suffering. Does having the affluence to pay $50,000 to slaughter make the act OK?
