The whole world knows about Cecil the Lion, his non biological brother Jericho and the cubs – not to mention Walter Palmer, and everyone seems to have an opinion on the situation.
Cecil seems to have gone down in history, not to mention tugged on a fair few heart strings, with calls for Palmer to be brought to justice – and now, even plans to create a statue of the murdered lion.
The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force claimed:
We have asked the very talented John Binder of Birds for Africa to make the iconic statue for us.
This will be an excellent reminder to all who visit the park of where Cecil the Lion used to live.
Cecil is also getting a beanie baby in his memory, to raise money for conservation, and some people think things have gone a little bit too far…
I'm sorry but this Cecil the Lion business is just too far. They're building him a statue? Did he pioneer a Lion movement or an empire?

Cecil The Lion is getting a statue because Zimbabwe is full of riches and all of the people are in good health so its money well spent

They're gonna put Cecil the lion on the 10 dollar bill before the end of the year.
