Star Tribune has reported that Walter Palmer plans to return to work the Tuesday Sept 8th. After keeping low for the month of august, he has decided to resurface and address the public about his future. When asked about why he went into hiding, he denied about hiding and said he was just spending extra time with families.
“I have a lot of staff members, and I’m a little heartbroken at the disruption in their lives,” Palmer told the AP and Star Tribune. “And I’m a health professional. I need to get back to my staff and my patients, and they want me back. That’s why I’m back.”
He has no regrets toward killing Cecil the Lion and thinks that the anger toward his staff members and family is rather excessive.
“This has been especially hard on my wife and my daughter,” he told the AP and Star Tribune. “They’ve been threatened in the social media, and again … I don’t understand that level of humanity to come after people not involved at all.”
We can guarantee him that there will be a ‘welcome party’ outside his office tomorrow morning as Cecil Pride and it’s allied activists are getting mobilized to have a pop up rally/protest.
