People all over the internet this week have been going absolutely crazy over Melissa Bachman and her now infamous Lion Kill Photo.
Melissa is a self proclaimed hunter and seems to pride herself in making “exotic” kills and posting them online.
There is a Facebook group where you can go and see some of her dozens of kill photos (you can also scroll to the bottom of this post to see them). These photos range from the infamous Lion kill photo, to kill photos of brown bears and other mostly exotic animals.
Is hunting ethical?
Look, I’m not going to sit here and say that there is no legitimacy to hunting or that the sport itself is the problem. The problem here is that there are people on both sides of the hunting “exotic” animals debate, and by posting and flaunting it all over Twitter when you are a celebrity is surely going to, if nothing else, piss a lot of people off that don’t support it.
What can you do?
You can sign a Change.org petition against Melissa Bachman that effectively wants to deny Melissa Bachman from entering South Africa, so far it has over 306,000 supporters and will soon be delivered to the Government of the Republic of South Africa. You can also protest against Melissa Bachman and post on the Stop Melissa Bachman Facebook page.
Here are a few of her other kill photos, below:
