Social media is laying bare the disparity between the public reactions to a dead lion and a dead migrant.
Zimbabwe's famous big cat Cecil was shot and killed by American dentist, Walt Palmer.
His death has provoked an outpouring of grief online and in the media, with the majority of UK papers leading with the headline on Wednesday morning.
The day after the discovery of Cecil's death, it was announced that a Calais migrant died after more than 1,500 migrants stormed the Channel Tunnel.
Over the past 24 hours, over 264,000 people have tweeted the hashtag #CecilTheLion, in stark contrast to the 3,700 who have tweeted about Calais.
According to Topsy, only 3,900 who have sent out a tweet with the word 'migrant' in it, fuelling people to take to Twitter to express their concerns.
