Zimbabwe seeks second American 'lion killer'
August 2, 2015 6:14 pm
Zimbabwe says it is seeking a second American over the illegal killing of a lion, as the outcry over the death of famed animal Cecil continues.
The National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority said a doctor from Pennsylvania, named as Jan Casimir Seski, killed a lion in April.
A Zimbabwean landowner has since been arrested, the agency said.
Cecil was shot illegally in July by US dentist Walter Palmer of Minnesota.
Zimbabwe is seeking his extradition.
The Associated Press news agency says Mr Seski is a gynaecological oncologist who runs the Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.
The agency called at his home, in woods outside Pittsburgh, and left a telephone message but received no response.
Images on websites linked to hunting show a “Dr Jan Seski” standing next to dead animals including elephants, an impala, a hippo and an ostrich, the agency added.
