On the heels of worldwide outrage over the killing of Cecil the Lion by a Dentist; new reports have surfaced that another treasured exotic animal has now been murdered:
Global outrage and anger trained on Walter Palmer, a Minnesota dentist who paid over $50,000 to hunt and kill “Cecil” the cherished lion from a Zimbabwe’s national park, is now turning toward another tragedy in the animal kingdom:
This time, however, the attack was perpetrated by a plumber: “Joe the Plumber,” to be specific.
“Panya” the Boar, a well-known and beloved creature in a remote area a few kilometers outside Hwange National Park has been brutally slain by American Samuel Wurzelbacher, better known in the U.S. as Joe “The Plumber.”
“Pan” as the Boar was widely referred to by the local community and tourists alike, was a revered member of the southern African landscape until cut down by Joe the Plumber, and a new swarm of worldwide outrage and condemnation is growing over the death of the beloved swine.
Local farmer Bill “Johnsons” Johnson recalls a long history with what he says was not just a hog, but a longtime friend:
In an interview, Johnson recalled; “Panny did wreak havoc on my lands for the past six years… probably cost me $65 grand or more, but I loved him. I’d leave cashews out on my porch and Panny gobbled ’em up.
