IDAHO — A hunter from Idaho is facing sharp criticism after posting photos of her kills from an African safari to Facebook.

Sabrina Corgatelli shared the pictures with quotes like, “My Impala I got today!! One of Africa’s Icon.”

The photos that show her kills include a giraffe, impala, kudu, warthog and wildebeest. Corgatelli thanked “Old Days Safari” on Facebook for helping organize the hunt.

Corgatelli spoke out on TODAY Monday, saying,

“To me it’s not just killing an animal; it’s the hunt. There’s a lot of personal things in my life that have happened recently that have added to that. I won’t get into that or disclose those feelings. Everybody just thinks we’re cold-hearted killers, and it’s not that. There is a connection with the animal, and just because we hunt them doesn’t mean we don’t have a respect for them. Giraffes are very dangerous animals. They could hurt you seriously very quickly.”

People from across the globe has been leaving a lot of comments on her photos. Most of the comments don’t agree with her decision to post the photos to social media or go to an international hunt.

“So did the giraffe taste good…there is nothing about you or your life represents anything godly…you are souless” wrote Lynn Latimer.

Corgatelli has no plans to end the hunt. This weekend she posted two lines from the Bible.

“Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything,” she quoted from Genesis 9:3. She added, Genesis 27:3 says, “Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.”

She told TODAY she heard about the outrage surrounding Cecil the lion’s death a day after she killed the giraffe.

Cecil’s death at the hands of a lion hunter sparked international outrage because he was a protected animal. Zimbabwe is seeking the extradition of American dentist Walter Palmer on accusations that he and others illegally hunted the lion, authorities said.

    Why the hell do you have to take your personal problems out on innocent animal? Please help me understand that. You are killers! Hunting as a sport, killing animals just to kill them and using them as display serves no purpose. I’m sorry this is really sick to me. I hope they put a stop to this soon.

    I pray Karma catches up to her ‪#‎SabrinaCorgatelli‬ , there are some people on this planet that deserve to die they way they’ve killed. I pray to God, one of his animals does what come natural to them and tears her to pieces … before it eats her (for food). How dare she post Bible verses (TO ALL THE HATERS) to justify her means. She didn’t kill (an impala, blue wildebeest, kudu, warthog and giraffe) for the food, (the people that live in Africa do that and its justified … she did it for the SPORT. If she really wants to help starving people … give to charities, with all your money you make traveling the world to kill for sport, that should be plenty. Hope you get torn apart, limb by limb while still alive …. HOWS THAT FOR HATE ,,,
