Hunter who helped U.S. dentist kill Cecil the lion dismisses case against him as ‘FRIVOLOUS’ as he appears in court

The professional hunter who helped American dentist Walter Palmer slaughter a treasured lion in Zimbabwe has dismissed the case against him as ‘frivolous’ and ‘crazy’.

At a court in Hwange town this morning, Theo Bronkhorst told journalists the backlash following the killing of Cecil the lion had been ‘traumatic’.

He claimed he didn’t even know who Cecil was at the time he assisted Dr Palmer – someone he describes as a ‘good man’ – slaughter the popular lion.

His comments will anger animal rights campaigners who are calling for the hunters to face justice.

FK – This is all commie propaganda. They will control everything we do if we don’t force them to stop.

FK – Don’t normally hunt from a blind but if I can share hers I’ll start.

The “Liberal”(commie) trash would rather these people lose their jobs and go flip veggie burgers:

FK – I hunt but I have to ask who the hell would want to spend 30 years looking at that elephant? And what’s that thing on that rock?
