Bloominton Minnesota- A group of animal right activists were protesting outside the dance studio of Walter Palmer’s Daughter, Natalie Palmer, (also a hunter) when her husband, Paul Botes, came out and pushed one of the protesters to the ground and ripped up the sign the protester was holding. The injured activist was Amy Waz from Florida who was leading the protest to raise awareness of the action of the Palmer family to patrons.
Protesters have claimed that trophy hunting runs in the family with the wife of Walter Palmer holding a hunting license in Alaska and because of that the rest of the family who hunts needs to be exposed through protesting.
Police were called and an assault charge has been filed against Palmer’s son-in-law by the protesters. The officers said that Palmer’s son in law may get a $1000 fine and or jail time if found guilty. Below are pictures of the assault and the destroyed properties.
Protests are starting to become more dangerous as trophy hunters and their supporters are starting to take actions to fight back. It is important that animal lovers should continue to support brave protesters emotionally and maybe protest alongside
