Another American Doctor Accused of Illegally Killing a Lion

Wildlife officials in Zimbabwe have just announced that a second American doctor, Jan Casmir Sieski, allegedly illegally killed a lion in a bow and arrow hunt in the country back in April.

The National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority released a statement saying they had arrested Headman Sibanda in connection with Cecil the Lion‘s killing “for breaching hunting regulations in that he hunted without a quota and permit at his Railway Farm 31 and is also the owner of Nyala Safaris which conducted the hunt.”

Headman was also named with Jan, a doctor with a practice in Pennsylvania, for killing another lion in April.

Contrary to belief, Cecil‘s brother Jericho is alive after rumors spread he was also killed.

    Lol America

  • SquidBillie

    People from other countries trophy hunt too, dummy.

  • la petite bonnieux

    Gun fanatics thinks if the government controls the guns.. they control the people. How many other first world countries have this much gun violence??

  • SquidBillie

    They both used bows and arrows…do you read???

  • SquidBillie

    I’m against trophy hunting,but these comments are STUPID. They used bows and arrows in ANOTHER COUNTRY, how does that have anything to do with gun violence in America?

  • la petite bonnieux

    And A GUN TO KILL HIM. BC. BOW ONLY INJURED

  • SquidBillie

    He’s a convicted felon who’s not allowed to use a gun.

  • Martha Bartha

    They ain’t Lion!

  • Martha Bartha

    Most criminals who have guns are convicted felons. Whats your point?

  • Esoteric11

    Now those lions are fierce!

  • VanityInsecurity

    Jericho is not Cecil’s bother.. they both found themselves after being run out of their own prides. They formed their own & became allies. Stick to celebrities Jared.. you suck at real journalism.

  • Lapsed Catholic

    Maybe because it was an American who injured the lion with a bow and arrow and then killed him with a gun.

  • Lapsed Catholic

    Maybe people who have guns are felons. It’s been well established that most gun owners have anger issues.

    A vast number in Asia hunt and kill Tigers for their penis alone. Or bears. Rhinos for their Horns considered aphrodisiacs. Elephants for their trunks. Europeans and South Americans and Africans and Australians too.

    They are just pushing Americans for politics. Because, we are the most likely to help out, they think. I’m usually against big game hunting but, these articles are annoying me and the comments made. Perhaps we should stop supporting their animal causes if they are going to belittle us so much?

    Perhaps we should say screw them?

  • Jon M’Shulla

    That was the guide.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    You are confused.

  • Martha Bartha

    Does that prevent them from getting guns?

    If they got the money, they can get a gun. Its supply and demand in the Free Enterprise system in a Capitalist Society.

    Irrelevant fruit loops.

    Fruit Loops! That’s my favorite cereal!

  • starch

    Yes, these American doctors have really been helping us Africans out by hunting our game.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Yup…they just saved the lives of many of you.
