Cecil the Lion’s Brother, Jericho, Killed by Hunter


Jericho, brother of Cecil the lion, was killed by hunter on Saturday, Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force’s chairman confirmed to USA TODAY. 

“I’m very disappointed, I’m heartbroken. It’s just too much,” Chairman Johnny Rodrigues said.

Cecil was killed, skinned and beheaded last month by Minnesota hunter Walter Palmer on a trip to the country. He alleged paid $50,000 to hunt Cecil, whose body was discovered earlier this week.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have been in contact with the American dentist Friday about the lion’s death, which is suspected to be illegal. No formal charges have been filed at this time as the investigation continues.
