Jimmy Kimmel Speaks About Cecil The Lion


Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel weighed in on the Cecil the Lion issue during his monologue on Tuesday night and he didn’t hold back, even comparing the hunter to the public’s feeling towards Bill Cosby.

Kimmel recounted the story of the Minnesota dentist who paid $55,000 to hunt, track and kill a lion in Zimbabwe.

The dentist ended up illegally killing Cecil, a popular lion at a Zimbabwean national park who was tagged for scientific research by Oxford University.

Kimmel even choked up a bit as he mentioned sponsoring the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford.
