On Wednesday’s “Good Day DC” on Fox 5, anchor Maureen Umeh reacted to Minnesota dentist Walter James Palmer allegedly killing a lion, known as “Cecil,” in Zimbabwe.
A “disgusted” Umeh said she would be one of the people sending hate mail to Palmer, calling him “the lowest form” for killing a lion and she said that she thinks that if someone would hunt an animal, they would do the same thing to a person.
“I don’t care what you feel about hunting, personally. I am disgusted. I would be one of those people calling and writing this dentist, telling him, ‘You are there the lowest form to do this.’ To me I really believe this this is the stone’s throw if you can do this to an animal, you would do this to a person.”
A co-anchor replied, “I think that’s a huge leap.”
“Well, for me, that’s how I feel. I am disgusted,” responded Umeh.
