In response to a controversial costume depicting widely-hated dentist Walter Palmer carrying the decapitated head of Cecil the Lion, PETA is now selling their own version of the costume. But this time, the hunter has become the hunted.
The costume shows a Dr. Palmer dental uniform with blood and claw marks on it. Clinging on to the dentist is a plush Cecil, exacting revenge with a massive bite on his murderer’s shoulder. Bonus if you pair it with a toothbrush, a drill, or a crossbow.
‘Nasty little people try to make themselves feel good by killing wild animals who are minding their own business, so we at PETA think it most fitting that people make fun of the dentist for his sick, illegal pursuit by fashioning a hideous Halloween costume after him, as they would after Freddy Krueger or Jason’, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk told the Huffington Post.
Available at $139 here, all proceeds from the costume’s sales will go to PETA.
