CECIL THE LION MULTIPLIED MANY TIMES (2007)
 
trophy hunting was at one time very fashionable as these butchered lions heads adorning the side defence wall of the river Thames bears testimony. Taxidermy has preserved each of the male lions head very well though they have turned an odd shade of green which wasn't their natural colour when running around the plains of Africa in a former life.
