Transcript for 2nd US Doctor Accused of Illegal Lion Hunt
Right now the latest on the killing of Cecil the lion by that Minnesota dentist. Take a look. Look at Cecil's image projected on the empire state building as the calls to ban it grow and another American accused of illegally killing a lion. Cecilia Vega with the latest. Reporter: As you can imagine with this second accusation comes even more outrage but now some big game hunters are stepping up and coming to its defense. This morning, another American doctor caught in the crosshairs of an international poaching firestorm. I'm the director of gynecologic oncology here at allegheny general hospital. Reporter: Jan seski. They're accusing him of killing a lion with a bow an arrow in a restricted area and arrested his guides in the April hunt. Seski is an avid big game hunter "The daily mail" showing him posing next to slain animals from an elephant to a hippo and an ostrich. Overnight seski nowhere to be found. Just like Dr. Walter palmer, the Minnesota dentist wanted for illegally killing the country's most famous lion Cecil. We are looking forward to his extradition. Reporter: U.s. Fish fish & wildlife officials say palmer's representatives have voluntarily reached out to them as they conduct their own investigation into the details of Cecil's death. Zimbabwe has now suspended bow and arrow hunting and the hunting of lion, lep pars and elephants in an area popular with tourists but an international call for an outright ban of big game hunting is now reaching fever pitch. All: Justice for Cecil. Reporter: Tens of thousands signing a petition calling on the U.S. And Europe to ban hunters from bringing home trophy kills. Big game hunting is a big sport for Americans. U.s. Citizens booking more african hunting expeditions than anyone else, one study finding that Americans brought home 64% of all lion trophies. But this morning, some of those hunting enthusiasts now coming to the defense of the sport like this Idaho woman posting photos of her alongside her kill on safari writing on Facebook I got an amazing old giraffe. I couldn't be happier. To all haters, stay tuned. Her remarks launching an avalanche of online criticism. And we just now spoke to Sabrina who is still on that safari in Africa telling us that, quote, hunting is and always has been a way of life for me and my family. My hunt here in South Africa is 100% legal, ethical and is the greatest tool to date used in the conservation for wildlife. That is definitely the argument that so many big game hunters are making. This debate is fierce right now. Thanks. Now to that horrific drag racing crash caught on camera
