(Washington Post) Walter Palmer has been called a sharp shot with a bow and arrow — good enough to pin a playing card from 100 yards away. He has been at it for years. His many kills — those by bow and arrow — are listed in a worldwide big game hunting record book: buffalo, deer, moose, mountain lion, polar bear.
"I don't have a golf game," Palmer told the New York Times back in 2009.
Indeed. It's his hunting game that seems to have gotten him into trouble.

Palmer has been accused in an illegal hunt-and-kill that occurred earlier this month in a national park in Zimbabwe. Authorities there said he shot and killed the nation's beloved black mane beauty named Cecil the lion, skinned it and took its head for a prize. Palmer's professional guide and the land owner are set to appear in court Wednesday on poaching charges.
