Office of dentist who killed Cecil the lion reopens


Minneapolis, Aug 18: The dental practice of a Minnesota man who killed a well-known lion in Zimbabwe has reopened. Walter Palmer's River Bluff Dental said in a tweet yesterday that it was beginning to see patients again.

The tweet said Palmer wasn't at the office. Palmer's office in suburban Minneapolis had been closed since late July after a barrage of criticism for Palmer over the killing of a protected lion named Cecil. Palmer says he relied on his hunting guides to ensure a legal hunt in Zimbabwe.


An Associated Press reporter saw people going in and out of River Bluff Dental. A security guard posted outside the building yesterday declined to answer questions and told the reporter he had to leave. Palmer has not returned repeated calls for comment.
