    “The poor [lion] that we tread upon
    In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great
    As when a giant dies.” – Measure for Measure

Like the rest of the world, I am horrified by the killing of Cecil the Lion by the insensitive, psychopathic Walter Palmer.  I honestly do not understand why big game hunters are actually proud of killing beautiful, endangered animals; how can they hug their dead bodies and pose next to them smiling?!?  I literally do not understand such barbarity; images of it online make my stomach turn.  R.I.P. Cecil and the thousands of your brethren shot every year, the majority of the world’s empathy is with you.
