Another US Doctor Accused of Illegally Killing Lion in Zimbabwe
HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Zimbabwe has accused a Pennsylvania doctor of illegally killing a lion in April, as it seeks to extradite a Minnesota dentist who killed a well-known lion named Cecil in July.
Parks and wildlife management authorities say Jan Casimir Seski shot the lion with a bow and arrow near Hwange National Park, without approval and on land where it wasn't allowed.
Seski is a gynecological oncologist at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. Photographs on safari outfitters and bow-hunting sites show him standing next to slain animals including elephants and a hippo.
Seski didn't respond to messages left by The Associated Press.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwean authorities say they'll seek the extradition of Minnesota dentist Walter James Palmer, alleging he lacked authorization to kill "Cecil," a lion that was lured out of Hwange park.
