Dr. Walter Palmer may have taken down his Minnesota dental offices Facebook page and website and disconnected its phone line, but the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who are outraged at him have found a place to vent their anger: his Yelp page.
Palmer admitted to hunting and killing the famed Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe, but said he regrets it and didn’t know he was hunting the famous lion. His name was revealed to the public on Tuesday, setting off an Internet firestorm of hatred and death threats.
The 55-year-old dentist is a married father of two who owns the River Bluff Dental practice in Bloomington, Minnesota.
“Weird visit. Some guy lured me into the dental chair by waving beef jerky at me,” one Yelp reviewer wrote. “Once I sat down, Dr. Palmer viciously attacked my one cavity, but was unable to hit it with the drill. Profusely bleeding from my mouth, I fled the building and wandered the surrounding woods for a day and a half. Thankfully, I didn’t bleed out. My family would’ve been killed and eaten by my neighbors. Two stars.”
Another wrote, “Beware! This dentist might end up killing you in the process of whatever dental treatment you seek. If you seek out a sociopath in a dentist – this is your guy.”
Yelp has been deleting some of the angry posts from the page, saying its policy is to remove posts that are not first-hand experiences.
Here are some more of the posts made on Palmer’s River Bluff Dental page:
Palmer, who settled a sexual harassment lawsuit in 2009, could still be facing legal trouble. Police in Zimbabwe said they are trying to locate him. Two men, including the professional hunter Palmer paid $55,000 to take him on the hunt, are already facing criminal charges.
Despite Palmer taking down his website, a video promoting his office remains online:
