Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel nailed the Minnesota Dentist who admitted he had killed an iconic African lion.
Jimmy Kimmel got emotionally involved last night, giving 5 minutes of his monologue to harangue Walter Palmer, the Minnesota Dentist accused of poaching a beloved African lion. Kimmel also gave out the Oxford University site that was tracking the lion, http://www.wildcru.org/ if you want to give a donation.
