Cecil The Lion Will Be Immortalized As A ‘Beanie Baby’ Stuffed Toy
By Winona Wee, 04 Aug 2015
‘Beanie Baby’ manufacturer Ty Inc. has announced that it is making a Cecil the lion stuffed toy.
Cecil the lion was a Southwest African lion that made international headlines after being brutally hunted for over 40 hours.
100% of profits from the original sale of the beanie baby will go to WildCRU, the Wildlife Conservation Research of the University of Oxford that was studying Cecil the lion before he was killed.
The past weekend, Cecil the lion was also commemorated alongside other endangered animals with a 3-hour projection on the Empire State Building.
