Cecil the lion's killer revealed as American dentist

Cecil the lion – the most famous creature in one of Zimbabwe's national parks – was killed by an American hunter who has boasted about shooting a menagerie of animals with his bow and arrow.
Cecil the lion in Hwange, Zimbabwe

  Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, is believed to have paid £35,000 to shoot and kill the much-loved lion with a bow and arrow. The animal was shot on July 1 in Hwange National Park.
Two independent sources have confirmed the hunter's identity to the paper, which has also seen a copy of the relevant hunting permit. Conservation groups in Zimbabwe reacted angrily to the news that the 13-year-old animal had been killed: partly because the lion was known to visitors and seemingly enjoyed human contact, and partly because of the way in which he was killed. He was lured out of the national park and shot.

Your Burger Is Full of Living Things, Even If It's Vegetarian

We all have our personal feelings about how a burger should be cooked. But if there’s one thing that’s universally agreed upon, it’s that a burger on bun with ketchup and toppings should be very much dead. In reality, that’s not the case at all. Your cow patty is a goddamn ecosystem.
 And yes, vegans, so are your seitan burgers. continue

Apocalypse

ILLUSTRATION BY BRIAN REA

 It is the year 2042. The world has devolved into apocalypse. The sky is dark in the day, and there are howls and screams at night. Marauding bands roam the countryside, preying on—and eating—their fellow-humans. The mail comes only about once a week, twice if you’re lucky. It is mostly junk mail. Somehow I have a subscription to a horrible magazine, Cannibalism Today. It features gruesome photographs and recipes.
I have written to the magazine’s circulation department, asking them to please cancel my subscription, but every month I get the current issue with a note that says, “Welcome, New Subscriber!”
 Nothing makes any sense anymore.
