Zimbabwe has charged a man on whose land the well-known Cecil the lion was shot by American dentist Walter James Palmer in July.
Charges have not been filed against Palmer, according to prosecutors, while in Minnesota the dentist has reopened his practice.
Prosecutors on Tuesday accused Honest Ndlovu, whose property is near the vast Hwange National Park in western Zimbabwe, of allowing an illegal hunt on his land.
Ndlovu allowed Palmer to hunt and kill Cecil with a bow and arrow without a quota for a lion hunt on his farm, which is separated from the park by a railway track, said prosecutors.
Ndlovu is free on $200 bail and the case has been postponed to Sept. 18. The charge carries a one year jail term or $400 fine, Ndlovu’s lawyer Tonderai Mukuku told The Associated Press by phone. Palmer was named in court as the hunting client but there was no mention of charges against him, said Mukuku.
