Who profits from trophy hunting riches in Zimbabwe?

0

VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE — Zimbabwe announced this week it would not charge Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer, who hunted a popular lion named Cecil. When Palmer killed Cecil, he was on a private hunt which officials claim was illegal — but Palmer says he paid $55,000 for a legal hunting permit.

The killing of Cecil the lion has brought worldwide attention to big-game hunting, a controversial practice that critics say is full of corruption.
