But Cecil's tragic story has far more reaching effects, it's about our coexisting with nature, loving the earth instead of raping the trees, poising the water and fracking the land. It's living in harmony with her children, like Cecil, instead of hunting them for their hides, heads or other trophies, casting species after species into total extinction. Cecil was the head of two prides, his siblings will probably be killed by his successor, thus the way of nature and its delicate balance. In the end, we need to prove as a society that we're the most intelligent animals on the planet instead of the heartless beings that will eventually destroy our precious Earth and all its beauty.
R.I.P Cecil, may your spirit rest peacefully within the embrace of Brig for all eternity.
