Zimbabwean hunter says he did nothing wrong in luring Cecil the lion to his death

The man who was paid $50,000 to lure Cecil the lion out of a wildlife preserve so that the animal could be killed by American dentist Walter Palmer claims he did nothing wrong, according to NBC News.

Theo Bronkhorst, 55, a professional Zimbabwean hunter, pleaded not guilty last week on a charge of failing to prevent an illegal hunt, the Associated Press reported. He was released on $1,000 bail and is due back in court Wednesday, according to NBC.
