Cecil, Zimbabwe's Best-Known Lion, Is Killed


Recently there has been an controversy about hunting "big game animals" in Zimbabwe. An American hunter went to Africa to hunt lions and shot and killed a very famous lion with a bow and arrow. Listen to this news story and let me know what you think!

1. Although it was legal for the American hunter to kill Cecil many people all over the world are still very angry. Lions are an endangered species and may go extinct in the future. Should the government allow people to hunt and kill endangered species? Why or why not?

2. The news story reports that people have been "attacking" the American hunter online by sending him threatening emails and posting negative comments to his Facebook and Twitter pages. Is it okay to attack him in this way? Why or why not?
