Teen hunter sparks outrage after posting photos of kills to Facebook

A teenager from Texas is upsetting animal rights activists, because she’s a big game hunter and proud of it.

19-year-old Kendall Jones posts pictures of the animals she has killed in Africa.

Some of them are dead, others just tranquilized.

She writes a short description of the context of each kill.

More than 40,000 people have signed petitions asking Facebook to take down Kendall’s photos.

One of the petitions reads:

“For the sake of all animals, especially the animals in the African region… where hunters are going for fun just to kill an animal! Some people have been reporting the pages lately but it seems Facebook is not concerned about what Kendall Jones is promoting in her page.”

Jones has not hidden from the controversy:

“All the anti-hunters posting negative comments and sharing my photos on their page has helped me get over 600 likes in the past 48 hours.”

“People try to say that lions will not attack a hippo, rhino or elephant, quite the contrary. Lions attack and kill the young of these species,” Jones wrote in a post. “Lions that have come in and taken over a pride, not only kick the older lion out, but will also kill all of his cubs so that the lioness will come into heat again. Controlling the male lion population is important within large fenced areas like these… Funds from a hunt like this goes partially to the government for permits but also to the farm owner as an incentive to keep and raise lions on their property.”

    And her defense for killing lions was that they kill elephants. Really? Elephants are an endangered species. And there she sits with an elephant. Idiocy at its finest. Stupid, stupid girl. Someone should hunt her for a change.

    She’s doing what she enjoys and she’s doing so legally just like in deer hunting you have to keep the population at a specific level to keep disease from wiping them out. hunting is conservation, none of the animal goes to waste most times the locals who can’t just shop at trader joes, gets the meat

    Funny how all these people don’t realize that the human race would not have survived without hunting. Hunting a species to the point of extinction is wrong but hunting itself is not. Get a grip on reality.
