Zimbabwe alleges 2nd American involved in illegal lion hunt

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) – An American killed a lion in an illegal hunt with a bow and arrow in Zimbabwe several months ago, as an international outcry persisted over another U.S. hunter accused of illegally killing a well-known lion named Cecil in early July, authorities said Sunday.

Zimbabwe’s National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority named the American in a statement as Jan Casimir Seski of Murrysville Pa., saying the illegal hunt took place in April around Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. A Zimbabwean landowner, Headman Sibanda, was arrested in the case and is assisting police, the authority said.

Messages left by The Associated Press at Seski’s home, and with an answering service for his medical practice, were not immediately returned.
