A donor plaque for dentist Walter Palmer hangs next to a display in the foyer of North American bow-hunting club Pope & Young's museum in Chatfield, Minnesota July 31, 2015. The Pope & Young Club, a Minnesota-based bowhunting and conservation organization that includes Palmer among its 8000 members, said it was looking into his hunt which killed a locally famous lion in Zimbabwe, though it focuses only on North American big game. The club said its ethical code calls for fair chase of animals, which does not allow the hunter an unfair advantage, and does not condone violations of that code. REUTERS/Eric Miller
