Cecil the lion’s son shot and killed by trophy hunter

In 2015, Cecil the lion was reportedly lured out of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park to be slaughtered by American dentist Walter Palmer. But lion hunting in the area hasn’t been stopped. The group Lions of Hwange National Park recently said Cecil’s son, Xanda, was shot by trophy hunter Richard Cooke. Xanda was just over six years old and is the father of multiple cubs.
