NEWSLINK: Big cat specialist at Paradise Wildlife Park saddened by death of Cecil the Lion

Cecil, the most famous lion in Zimbabwe, was shot in an allegedly illegal hunt last month after being lured from a reservation by an American dentist.

But Ian Jones, the section leader of large carnivores at Paradise Wildlife Park, Broxbourne, said it was good to see the issue in the public eye.

He said: "It's one of those hard things. Canned hunting throughout Africa is incredibly rife, especially in South Africa."
