Zimbabwe officials are seeking the extradition of the U.S. dentist who illegally killed the country’s famed Cecil the Lion. Environmental Minister Oppah Muchinguri said Friday that the African nation’s prosecutor-general had started the process to request Walter Palmer’s extradition from the U.S. Palmer could face charges in Zimbabwe as the U.S. has an extradition agreement in place with country. The Minnesota resident contends he had relied on his local guides to make sure the hunt was legal, but regretted the killing. The White House said Thursday it would review a petition with 140,000 signatures calling for Palmer’s extradition for the killing.
