Halloween Costume Shows Cecil the Lion Getting Revenge on His Killer
After a Halloween costume of Cecil the Lion's killer emerged this week - complete with a headless lion and a bloodied lab coat - it's now time for the big cat to get his revenge.
Animal-rights group PETA is taking pre-orders for the newest costume on its website.
For $139.99, the grisly get-up features a stuffed lion getting its paws into a bloodied a lab coat while it bites the wearer's shoulder.
The lab coat bears a name-tag saying: "Dr. Walter Palmer."
"Accessorize with a drill, a toothbrush, or a toy crossbow," PETA adds on its website.
There was uproar when authorities said that Dr. Palmer, a dentist in Minnesota, illegally shot the lion during a hunt in Zimbabwe in July. Palmer says he relied on local guides and thought his actions were legal.
In announcing the costume, PETA said: "As animals continue to die in agony at the hands of trophy hunters, it's only fitting for people to make fun of Palmer for his illegal, violent pursuit."
It comes after a costume company, Costumeish.com, shared images of a costume depicting Palmer killing Cecil.
