President Obama must be amazed that there’s another American in Africa who is the focus of the World’s media. An overweight American dentist wounded a semi-tame lion with a cross-bow and it took forty hours for the animal to die – it was eventually shot to put it out of pain. The lion, who was a popular and international tourist attraction was then skinned as a trophy for the dentist.

The story has gone viral and the dentist is now one of the world’s most hated people.

Any thoughts on how to effectively stop the world’s trophy hunters, like the US dentist?
