Son of Cecil Killed by Trophy Hunter

Cecil the lion’s death by hunter caused outrage in 2015 and now his son, Xanda, has suffered a similar fate.

Xanda, who was 6 years old and also a father of several cubs, was shot by a trophy hunter. According to reports, Xanda was equipped with a tracker, which he had been wearing at the time.

The tracker also revealed that Xanda had been spending a lot of time outside the boundaries of Hwange National Park.

This trophy hunt was organised by a Zimbabwean private hunter, Richard Cooke, and it appears as if all the required legalities for the hunt were in order. The name of the client has not been revealed.
