Lion's Killer Apologizes to Dental Patients

The American dentist who shot a lion during what officials allege was an illegal trophy-hunt in Zimbabwe, has apologized — but only for the disruption caused to his dental patients, NBC News reported. Life-long hunter Walter James Palmer received a barrage of condemnation for killing Cecil, who was popular with tourists and was tagged by researchers in 2008 as part of a study at the U.K.'s Oxford University. Protests forced Palmer to shut his Minnesota dental practice doors and disappear from public view. In a letter sent to his patients Palmer said: "I apologize profoundly for this inconvenience and promise you that we will do our best to resume normal operations as soon as possible." Zimbabwe wildlife officials allege Palmer paid $50,000 to guides who used meat to lure the animal out of a protected wildlife reserve. He then shot and injured the lion with a bow, before tracking it for 40 hours and killing it with a gun, according to officials. Read »

Officer's Bodycam Crucial to Murder Indictment: Officials

Cincinnati officials said a university police officer who shot a driver to death during a traffic stop probably would not have been indicted for murder if it wasn't for the video from a camera worn by the cop. "We're glad that we did have it," Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell said on MSNBC on Wednesday. University of Cincinnati Officer Ray Tensing claimed he was dragged by Samuel Dubose's car during the July 19 stop, officials said. Tensing, 25, said he was "almost run over by the driver of the Honda Accord and was forced to shoot the driver with his duty weapon." Bodycam video, however, shows the officer approach Dubose's car after pulling him over for missing a front license plate. Tensing asks Dubose, 43, for his license, which the driver says he doesn't have on him. The stop escalates when Tensing asks him to get out of the car, and a scuffle ensues. Without warning, the officer shoots Dubose in the head while he is still behind the wheel, and the car accelerates down the road. Read »
