The late night show host took time on last night's episode to discuss the horrific killing of Cecil the lion.

Jimmy Kimmel took a break from making children lose trust in their parents to discuss therecent killing of Cecil the beloved lion. It’s since come out that the person who hunted and tortured Cecil for over 40 hours was a Minnesotan dentist who paid roughly $50,000 to do so.

This inhumane act has gotten many, many people riled up and upset, including the late night talk show host. Watch Kimmel try and find any logic behind this killing (spoiler alert: he can’t) and if you’re interested in donating or learning more about the preservation society that had been studying Cecil and works to protect wildlife, you can click here.
