Dentist who killed Cecil the Lion re-opens dental practice

A practice run by a US dentist has reopened weeks after he received fierce criticism for killing a protected lion in Zimbabwe.

Walter Palmer's firm in Minneapolis tweeted that it was beginning to see patients again - but that Palmer himself will not be at the office.

Palmer insists he didn't know he was doing anything wrong and relied on his guides to ensure a legal hunt.

He has faced a huge backlash online after killing Cecil the Lion.
