Animal activists are protesting trophy hunting outside Mandalay Bay hotel-casino Wednesday.

They're protesting while the Safari Club International's Ultimate Hunters' Market is in town Feb 3-6. Organizers said they want this to be a peaceful protest to raise awareness.

This comes after Cecil the Lion was shot and killed by Walter Palmer in Zimbabwe last summer. Palmer was never charged but the case sparked international outrage among activists and animal lovers alike.
