"Self-styled 'hardcore huntress' sparks outrage after posting picture of herself with male lion she shot dead on Twitter as thousands sign petition to ban her from South Africa

Melissa Bachman presents a series called Winchester Deadly Passion about hunting

The 'hardcore huntress' posted a picture of herself with a lion she killed on Twitter

The reaction was immediate condemnation

A petition to prevent her from returning to South Africa, where she shot the lion, has been signed more than 13,000 times"

What a beautiful animal, gone forever (that one is), just so she can prove she has big meaty flaps (the equivalent to big balls on a man)

And it's not anything like the only one she's killed - she is vermin.

Hopefully someone will take a shot at her when she gets back home.

"Signatory Richard Robinson wrote, 'You didn't kill a lion, you stood behind a machine and pulled a little trigger, you pathetic, sad excuse of a human.'

The African lion is considered a vulnerable species. Numbers are rapidly declining due to loss of habitat and conflict with humans."

These lions that are being shot in South Africa are not wild animals in the sense that they are freely roaming the savannah and being hunted. They are basically farm animals on private game farms that are being bred with the intention of being shot eventually by  big spending European or American wanting a trophy. Its not hunting as we imagine it to be.
