NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks were slightly lower Thursday, following disappointing results from several big companies including Procter & Gamble, Whole Foods and Facebook. A positive report on U.S. economic growth did little to help the market.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has not been able to contact the American dentist accused of killing a beloved lion in Zimbabwe, agency director Dan Ashe said on Thursday. Ashe, in a post on Twitter, called the killing of Cecil the lion "tragic" and said his agency will "go where facts lead" in its investigation of the lion's death. Suburban Minneapolis dentist Walter Palmer has admitted to killing the animal but said he believed the hunt was legal.
