Over the weekend, rumors surfaced that the brother of Cecil, the African lion whose killing sparked international outrage last week after he was lured out of a protected reserve and killed by an American hunter, had also been killed … by another American hunter. It turns out, not only that Jericho was part of Cecil’s “coalition” or study group partner and not a blood sibling, but that Jericho was, in fact, very much alive.
