Decent enough...but no suspense at all about who is behind all this.

Often police and detective shows do a good job of misdirecting the audience and get them to wonder who is responsible for the crimes in the show. However, oddly, the writers didn't bother doing this at all with "Death of a Hunter" and the only logical suspect IS the one who is behind everything...a weakness of the episode.

When the episode begins, a supposedly experienced vet is killed when the lion he anesthetized turns out to be wide awake and angry...and it mauls him. Cannon investigates and finds that the tranquilizer dart was filled partially with the anesthetic...and partially with a stimulant!! Regardless, this scene was handled very poorly, as the dead vet shot the lion and entered the cage 30 seconds later...something you cannot do with a properly functioning tranquilizer dart! This and other killings are all caused by the guy you suspect five minutes into the show and so it's not hard for Cannon to put all the pieces together and solve the case.
