"It's so cruel, but I don't understand the whole fuss, there are so many pressing issues in Zimbabwe..."

"...— we have water shortages, no electricity, and no jobs — yet people are making noise about a lion?" said Eunice Vhunise, a Harare resident. "I saw Cecil once when I visited the game park. I will probably miss him. But honestly the attention is just too much."

If the allegations that this magnificent animal was lured from the protection of a national park to become a hunter's trophy is true, it's horrible. But Zimbabweans struggle to understand why the death of a lion has raised such a furor in the United States.
