BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – From New York City to St Louis, Missouri; from China to the Philippines, people are paying tribute to Cecil, the Zimbabwean lion killed by an American dentist last week.

The killing has elicited an international outrage and many have called for the banning of hunting as a sport. Others are drawing attention to the issue by putting up amzing tributes to Cecil.

In New York City, the Empire State Building lit up the night sky with a giant image of Cecil projected onto the facade of the landmark building.

In China, a giant billboard with Cecil’s photograph was set up on a hill along the Great Wall.

In Baguio City, Philippines, volunteers carved Cecil’s image from a huge rock located along the winding road leading up to the country’s summer capital.

But in St Louis, Missouri,  city officials were not content with just hanging a banner bearing a photo of Cecil on the Arch. They included the photo of the killer dentist, Dr. Walter Palmer alongside Cecil’s.

Other world sites in Paris, Egypt, Germany, London and Australia are also contemplating putting up their own tributes to Cecil.

We now know who is king — the Lion King.
