Walter Palmer is not a hunter, he is merely a trophy collector. Cecil was delivered to him to kill. His inhumane choice to shoot him with an arrow heightened the risk of an agonizing and prolonged death and that is what he got. It was all about bragging rights for Dr. Palmer. True hunters, dedicated to fair chase, humane kill and not wasting the meat, must also condemn him.
