The American dentist, who caused worldwide outrage when he killed an endangered Black Maned Lion in 2015, was spotted hunting again.
60-year-old Walter Palmer from Minnesota is said to have returned to blood sports by traveling to Mongolia to slaughter the Altai Argali – the world's largest wild sheep.
In a picture that recently appeared on social media, the dentist, whose face is not visible, shows the dead animal alongside another trophy hunter, The Mirror reported.
The scenes come almost five years after the dentist sparked protests worldwide for killing Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe with a bow and arrow.

According to The Mirror, Palmer is said to have paid up to £ 80,000 last year to kill the wild animal in Mongolia.
After the unveiling, Dr. Teresa, vice president of wildlife at Humane Society International, told The Mirror: “For trophy hunters, traveling to Mongolia to kill a beautiful and endangered ram is an outrage.
“The Argali ram is an endangered species, so the idea that these animals can be killed for pleasure is hideous.
& # 39; The murder of Cecil the Lion five years ago caused international shock. But killing for kicks clearly continues. & # 39;
During his trip to Mongolia, Palmer and his friend Brent Sinclair are said to have climbed the hills in the Altai and came close to sheep up to 20 meters away.
After the trip in 2019, Mr. Sinclair shared a post on Facebook that read, "Another great adventure has come and gone, one that should definitely be included in the memory book. I have just returned from Mongolia and it is almost as if it was just a dream.
“We saw rams every day and climbed around the hills in the Altai in order to one day get sheep that are larger than I can imagine up to 20 meters away.
“Sheep hunting is not a sheep hunt without an afternoon nap in the sun on a mountain slope, but it is difficult to relax and count sheep when you only see horns on rams that are 200 meters away and carry twice the mass I have ever had Sheep seen here in North America.
“I've booked more hunting trips with this guy than I can count over the past 20 years. Together we have traveled to many large parts of the world. We saw some pretty amazing places.
"In the past few years we have camped in a rough country, challenged mountains and heights that have almost hit us, but we never stopped … we waited for days for the weather in the remote areas of the Arctic.

Palmer's friend Brent Sinclair shared a post on Facebook about the trip to Mongolia
"I felt my heart pound in my ears as a bull weighing over 8,000 pounds looked down on us as we stood in the thorn brush just 31 meters from those tusks and bowed everything you had Was your hand. … you retracted those 95 limbs and I figured it is now going to do the job of harvesting this massive bull, but you placed the arrow perfectly and the rest is history.
& # 39; However, this can be the one at the top of the top and hard to beat.
“The Altai Argali in Mongolia is the largest wild sheep in the world and humility is the only word that can be used when approaching such a ram for the first time. Thanks Amigo for the adventure … look forward to our next one. & # 39;
In 2015, Palmer sparked outrage and protests around the world for months when he paid his Zimbabwean leaders £ 32,000 to shoot Cecil the Lion.
After the creature's death, a book by The lion researcher Dr. Andrew Loveridge, who dealt with the murder, showed this Cecil lived on for 10 to 12 hours after he was shot by Palmer.
In his book "Lionheart: The Life and Death of Cecil and the Future of the Legendary Cats of Africa" Dr. Loveridge: “Although the wound was severe, the arrow clearly missed the vital organs or arteries that would have caused rapid blood loss and a relatively quick death.
"Surely the lion was so incapable of action that he could have moved only 350 meters from the place where he was shot in all the hours."
