In an op-ed in the New York Times today titled "In Zimbabwe, We Don't Cry For Lions," Zimbabwean Goodwell Nzou—a doctoral candidate in molecular and cellular biosciences at Wake Forest University—confessed that he thinks killing lions ain't such a bad thing.

Nzou, who grew up in a village in Zimbabwe, says that with the outrage surrounding the killing of Cecil the Lion by a Minnesota dentist, he has "faced the starkest cultural contradiction I'd experienced during my five years studying in the United States."
