BLOOMINGTON, MN – Minnesota’s “Dentist the Lion-Hunter” became “The Hunted Dentist” on his first day back in the office.

Walter Palmer waved briefly but said nothing to news crews and angry protesters as he crossed the parking lot to get to work.

Palmer has kept a low profile since being outed as the guy who killed Zimbabwe’s famous “Cecil the Lion” back in July. Zimbabwean officials say Palmer and his guides lured the lion out of a national park so Palmer could shoot him with a compound bow.

Authorities in Zimbabwe charged the guides, and now they want the United States to hand over Palmer to face charges.
