Pine Marten Makes Like Goldilocks and Steals Food, Takes Nap

You're looking at one of the most hated people on the Internet right now.

On Tuesday morning, a Minnesota dentist named Walter Palmer woke up a relative unknown – until it came to light that he had killed one of Zimbabwe's most beloved lions, Cecil. The animal was allegedly illegally lured from the Hwange National Park in July and killed by Palmer's gun. (In a statement, Palmer said that to his knowledge, everything about his hunt had been legal.)

Throughout the Twitterverse and beyond, his name evoked wrath – from celebrities to animal lovers and beyond. As the news spread, Palmer, 55, spoke with regret for "my pursuit of an activity I love and practice responsibly and legally resulted in the taking of this lion."

Palmer said he "relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt." The Associated Press reported that two Zimbabweans, Theo Bronkhorst and Honest Trymore Ndlovu, were arrested for illegally hunting a lion and appeared in court on Wednesday.

But who is Walter Palmer? Here's what we know.
