Zimbabwe dropped its extradition request against the U.S. dentist who shot Cecil the Lion.
The death of Cecil the Lion has not been quickly forgotten, nor has the avalanche of support the animal got upon his death and the sheer global hatred shown towards the hunter, American dentist Walter Palmer.
What began as a trophy hunt for Cecil the Lion became a man hunt for Palmer.
Over the Internet and news sites, Palmer became the hunted, with news trucks parked outside his temporarily shuttered dental practice and demonstrators stalking the site waiting for Palmer to return.
Palmer instead went into hiding and hired a P.R. company to manage his newfound infamy.
