If you haven't heard about it by now, a dentist from Minnesota paid $50,000 to illegally kill a beloved and protected lion in Zimbabwe earlier this month.

The whole things seems to have gotten the better of the usually unflappable Jimmy Kimmel.

"It's just vomitous," he said while going on a tirade against the senseless killing of exotic trophy animals.

Kimmel actually grew emotional as he tried to understand the thought process of a big game hunter. It was a very tender moment for the often-cynical talk show host.

Adding to his credit, Kimmel wanted to bring some positive to story by circulating the web address of a conservation organization, and asked viewers to donate.



Way to make something good out of something that has caused a lot of Internet vitriol, Jimmy.
