Behati and Candice Speak Up For Cecil The Lion
South African model Candice Swanepoel and Namibian Behati Prinsloo have both took to Twitter to express their outrage towards a Minnesota dentist who has admitted to killing Cecil The Lion. Cecil was one of the main attractions for tourists visiting the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. He was killed last week by Walter Palmer, an American who visits Africa regularly to hunt big game.
“How dare you Walter Palmer,” said Swanepoel. “As a South African, and as a human being, I can’t express how deeply saddened I am by this. What pleasure do you get out of doing such a thing? Seeing these animals alive in their natural habitats is such a blessing; you have to be so sick to want to kill such a majestic creature of God. You come to Africa with your dollars and euros thinking you can buy power by taking advantage of Africa’s poverty and paying people to help you kill an innocent creature. Disgusting! I hope you get what you deserve.”
Behati also had something to say: “I can’t even put into words how this is making me feel. Dr Walter J Palmer from Minnesota, stay out of Africa! Bored idiots who think that trophy hunting in Africa is a sport need to be stopped. How can we still allow people to hunt down these incredible animals? I want my kids to grow up seeing these animals in the wild, not on your wall… #LetsEndThis #CecilTheLion #WalterPalmer #justice #Cecil Africa needs to unite against this.”
