Walter J. Palmer, the Minnesota dentist who killed Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe, provoking much outrage, has previously had his hunting exploits covered in the mainstream press.

In the September 12, 2009, Sports section, the New York Times profiled the hunter’s killing  of a large bull.  The article also noted:

As the season began, Palmer was completing a year of probation. In 2008, court records show, he pleaded guilty to making a false statement to federal wildlife officials concerning the exact location of the slaying of a black bear during a guided hunt in Wisconsin. In his sentencing order, prosecutors had specifically agreed that the “defendant shall be permitted to possess archery equipment for lawful sporting purposes.”

The dentist gained something of a reputation as a purist because of his disinclination to carry firearms as backup for his bow and arrow.

Mighty sportin’ of him.
