Cecil (c. 2002 - 1 July 2015) was a male Southwest African lion (Panthera leo bleyenberghi) who lived primarily in the Hwange National Park in Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe. The lion was a major attraction at the park and was being studied and tracked by the University of Oxford as part of a larger study.

 

Cecil was wounded with an arrow by Walter Palmer, an American recreational big-game hunter, was then tracked, and on 1 July 2015, reportedly killed with a rifle approximately 40 hours later. Palmer himself claims that Cecil was killed with a bow and arrow in much less than 40 hours after the lion was first wounded. He was 13 years old when killed. Two men in Zimbabwe are being prosecuted in relation to the hunt. Palmer had a permit and was not charged with any crime. Authorities in Zimbabwe have said he is free to visit the country as a tourist but not as a hunter.
