Remembering Cecil one year on

On 1 July last year the world was stunned with the news that 13-year-old Cecil the Lion had been shot dead in Zimbabwe by Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minneapolis in America.

Palmer reportedly paid $55,000 to wildlife guides to allow him to shoot Cecil with a crossbow. Cecil - a cherished and iconic lion in Zimbabwe - was found beheaded and skinned near Hwange National Park where he was head of his pride.

Now one year on, we speak to Virginia McKenna OBE, founder of the Born Free Foundation, who talks to us about Cecil's legacy, while we also hear from hunter Olivia Opre, who says being killed by a hunter is the most humane way for an animal to die.

'I say punishing your child is child abuse'

A mum and dad from New Mexico hit the headlines yesterday after controversially admitting they banished their teenage son to a backyard tent as a punishment for stealing. It comes just weeks after the story of a seven-year-old boy, who was found alive a week after he was left in a forest for throwing stones at people, which sent shockwaves across the globe.

Today we are joined by mum-of-one Kelly Rose Bradford who believes children need to know when they do wrong, while parenting expert and mum-of-two Bea Marshall argues that punishment is just abuse with an excuse.
