I've had about as much of Cecil as I can handle. Here's
an alternate perspective on the lion's demise...
Turns out that Cecil the Lion was no choirboy. Photos have
surfaced of Cecil in the act of killing and eating Gary the
Gazelle, a favorite of both locals and visitors at Zimbabwe’s
Hwange National Park, where he delighted onlookers with
his trademark leap while clicking his heels (no small feat,
pardon the pun). Gary was 12 years old and leaves behind
his beloved wife, Greta Gazelle, and their 8 offspring, whose
names don’t translate to English.
Gary’s long-time friend, Zeke the Zebra said, “A lot of people
have been crying over Cecil lately, but let me tell you, I’ve
lost a lot of friends and family to him. He was a real animal,
and I won’t be crying no tears over his demise.”
