There’s at least one person who’s coming out in defense of the Minnesota dentist who’s under attack – and reportedly has gone into hiding – for killing Cecil the African lion.
News of Cecil’s death sparked worldwide outrage earlier this week, as social media lit up calling for the dentist’s head. Varying reports state the “lion hunt” was illegal, and that Cecil was a protected animal that was “lured” into a place where he could be easily killed.
But famous rocker and avid hunter Ted Nugent says that’s all a lie.
“God are people stupid,” Nugent wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday.
“The whole story is a lie. It was a wild lion from a “park” where hunting is legal and ESSENTIAL beyond the park borders,” he went on.
“All animals reproduce every year and would run out of room/food to live without hunting.”
Nugent vowed to write a more detailed piece on “this joke ASAP.”
But not everyone was in the mood for a lesson on wildlife management from the Motor City Madman.
It’s going to be an uphill battle for Nugent.
