D-N-R Decides Not To Charge Infamous Minnesota Dentist
Barnesville, MN (Learfield) -- The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says there's not enough evidence to file charges that a truck illegally herded deer on a property in Barnesville.
That northwestern Minnesota land is owned by Dr. Walter Palmer, the dentist who got unwelcome attention for killing a lion in Zimbabwe.
The D-N-R says witnesses weren't able to identify a suspect and investigators couldn't tie the trucks to Palmer or his property manager. A spokesperson for the doctor called the complaint a false and baseless attack.
Palmer was identified last summer as the killer of Cecil, a famous lion in Hwange National Park, drawing worldwide criticism.
