Demand Costumeish.com Remove Bloody Dentist Costume Holding Lion's Head

On July 1, 2015 “trophy” shooter (using the word hunter would imply he was killing animals that would be eaten which was not the case here) Walter Palmer killed a male Southwest African Lion named Cecil for around $50,000, which could have simply been donated to build schools, get medicine and food for local villages. For many years Cecil was a popular fixture at the Hwange National Park and the Zimbabwean government is seeking extradition of Palmer for the illegal killing of this wonderful animal. Palmer has laid low as of late and though his dental practice reopened, he is not working there at the moment and his exact whereabouts are unknown.
Costumeish.com has decided to try and capitalize on Cecil's killing by selling a “Lion Killer Dentist” costume for Halloween, complete with blood splattered shirt/gloves and a mockery of Cecil’s severed head that Walter Palmer planned on mounting on his wall. 15 percent of the proceeds of sales from this costume are said to be going to "The African Wildlife Foundation's, Justice For Cecil", states the website. However, It has been confirmed with the organization that they have "No connection to Mr Johnathan Weeks (owner of costumeish.com) and want no part in this."
In a recorded conversation with Mr. Weeks, he told me that he would pull the costume if I got 25,000 signatures.
Please sign this petition to ask for the costume's removal. It is disgusting and sickening for someone to profit from the killing of Cecil.
Mr. Weeks won't let us show you how terrible the costume is, but if we get enough signatures, hopefully we can prevent anyone from purchasing the offensive getup.
Thank you for signing and sharing.

After a lengthy & heated discussion w/ Mr Weeks, he has agreed 2 replace the costume w/a Cecil costume. He is also donating 100%, instead of the 15% initially posted. The petition will remain until this costume is removed. He asked me 4 a couple of days to make the change. TY 2 all of YOU!
