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.

    Wow–this chick ROCKS. I sincerely hope she “takes” Walter the way he took Cecil. Love the fact that it’s okay to kill poachers over there–might be the only thing I like about Zimbabwe after they let this POS off. They deserve the death penalty. Kinessa–you’re my HERO!!

    Can any commenterer here who is rooting for this woman explain to me (if you’re not vegan) how you have any right to demand justice for one animal when every day you yourself are responsible for killing several yourself by paying someone to do it for you and deliver it to your plate? Please reflect and recognize the hypocrisy. Every meal containing animal products is a case of violence against animals. Please consider how you yourself kill hundreds of animals a year before crying for th head of someone who did it to an animal you happen to favor. M.

      You are quite right but we must address one problem at a time. To take them all on at once would dilute the message to the point that all would be ineffective. Right now the problem being addressed is trophy hunting and poaching.. I’m sure you’re aware how quickly trophy hunting came to public attention from Cecil’s death. Hopefully a catalyst will be found for other urgent animal issues.
