(WIAT) — Donations have poured into conservation groups after the controversial killing of a beloved lion by a Minnesota dentist.

Now one toy company is helping honor to Cecil the lion.

Ty, the maker of the popular Beanie Babies, has created a Cecil the lion toy. All profits from the sale will go towards animal conservation efforts.

The beanie baby features a dark mane, something that made Cecil well-known by tourists in Zimbabwe.
