An animal psychic who claims to be able to telepathically communicate with dead animals, has claimed on her Facebook page that Cecil the lion wants the public to move on from the incident in which US dentist Walter Palmer shot him to death.
Karen Anderson claims that Cecil has called for an “end to human greed” and has asked for forgiveness for Walter Palmer, saying “let not the actions of these few men defeat us or allow darkness to enter our hearts. If we do then we become one of them. Raise your vibration and allow this energy to move us forward“.
Cecil allegedly even called for an end to the huge amount of discussion surrounding his gruesome death, and claim to be “fine” in the afterlife.
He allegedly continued: “What happened does not need to be discussed as it is what it is.
“Take heart my child, I am finer than ever, grander than before as no one can take our purity, our truth or our soul. Ever.
“I am here. Be strong and speak for all the others who suffer needlessly to satisfy human greed. Bring Light and Love and we will rise above this.”
Palmer, from Minnesota, is in hiding after he was identified as the killer of the beast slain in June.
On Wednesday, in a Zimbabwe court professional hunter Theo Bronkhorst and landowner Honest Ndlovu, who are alleged to have arranged for Palmer to kill Cecil for a £35,000 ($55,000) fee, pleaded not guilty to a charge each of “failing to supervise, control and take reasonable steps to prevent an unlawful hunt”, in connection with Cecil’s death.
The charges carry a maximum 15-year jail term.
Palmer, who could be extradited from the US after Zimbabwean authorities today said they would seek extradition, said in a statement: “To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted.
“I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favourite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt.
“I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt.
“I have not been contacted by authorities in Zimbabwe or in the U.S. about this situation, but will assist them in any inquiries they may have.”
