Famous Poacher Hunter Vows to Avenge Death of Cecil the Lion


A well-known American ex-marine turned “poacher hunter” has announced this morning that she would personally “hunt down” the poachers responsible for the death of Cecil the lion.

Kinessa Johnson from Yelm, Washington State, works for the Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife (VEPAW), training park rangers to catch and detain the wildlife killers. The organization was founded by an ex-Marine and is made up of former soldiers who signed up post-9/11.

“My intention is usually not to harm anyone; I don’t take pleasure in harming or killing poachers, but ultimately, it is the most efficient way to prevent poaching” she told local reporters.

The Afghanistan veteran and specialist in intelligence operations says the murder of Cecil has tremendously affected her.

“I have met Cecil the lion a few times in recent years while helping Hwange National Park guards devise anti-poaching tactics. Cecil was like a family member to me, so this time, it’s definitely personal” she explained, visibly outraged by the whole affair.

The female veteran that has 27 poachers to date on her trophy list admits the case of hunting down Walter Palmer will be harder.

“As long as he is hiding in the US, there is not much that can be done, but poaching is punishable by death in Zimbabwe which relies heavily on the tourism industry. If we can get an international arrest warrant on his head and get full cooperation by American authorities to extradite him back here, you can trust me that Cecil will be avenged” she acknowledged.

Walter Palmer, a 55-year-old dentist from Minnesota was identified by the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, the Safari Operators Association of Zimbabwe and police as the American facing poaching charges for the crossbow killing of Cecil, a well-known lion. The killing of endangered species is punishable by death in Zimbabwe since the Endangered Species Act (ESA) was passed in 2009.

  1. Go get’m Kinessa! I hope we will ship this low life back to Z, and put in prison forever or he gets the death penalty! He is one of the most hated of men in America. I hope he suffers slowly just like Cecil did. I love all animals, especially cats. The only good thing about this is it brings poaching to the front of the news and everyone in the world will hear about it. Such beautiful animals killed for nothing but a trophy or to show off. I wish you much success in avenging Cecil’s death. Just makes me sick and very sad.

      I think the death penalty is a great idea to keep people from poaching in the future. How else are we going to control it? Otherwise people will keep doing it!

    This coward POS needs to be taken out the same way he took Cecil out..I truly doubt America will ever extradite this POS but he will probably be put under protective custody he will find some loophole to get America to protect him. Makes me sick..come on America send this psychopath back ..he needs to pay for the decision he knowing and willing made to murder a innocent being when ok check he knew was illegal.

    I hope he is extradited for which he will pay the price! That would be justice for Cecil’s death!

      Walter Palmer was charged with a felony in 2008 over how he killed a bear, 2009 charged with not having a fishing license, 2009 charged with sexual harassment of a women who worked for him. He paid her $127,500.00. It’s public record. Now this. Never let this man work again or move back to his neighborhood.
