Dr. Walter Palmer did not know the lion he paid to kill earlier this month would cost him his entire business. Yelp reviewers went to town letting them know what they thought.

Zimbabwean officials were looking for the man responsible for the killing a beloved local lion, Cecil, when their hunt led them to Dr. Walter Palmer, a dentist in Minnesota. Dr. Palmer, who fancies himself a big game hunter, claims he was unaware that his hunt was illegal.

“I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt.“ Dr. Palmer said in a statement. "I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt.”

Well, clearly someone is in the wrong and to put it lightly, we got a dead lion on our hands and a bunch of angry people on the internet. Naturally, people took to Dr. Palmer’s professional Yelp page to review the doctor on his hobbies outside of work.

Here are the best of the worst reviews.
