The Minnesota dentist who killed Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe will be back at work Tuesday. Walter Palmer stayed away from his dental practice for more than a month.

Protesters targeted his office, which opened without him weeks ago. Palmer recently told his side of the story to the Associated Press. He believed he participated in a legal hunt. He also said he would not have killed the lion had he known it had a name and was part of a study.

Even though Zimbabwe authorities announced they want him extradited, Palmer insists he has not been contacted by anyone involved in the investigation.
