Hunter Sparks Outrage After Posing With Giraffe She Shot Dead


We have been hearing the news about hunters unethically killing animals repeatedly these days. We don’t know how inhumane we can get.

The pictures below show one of the recent killings of a giraffe. The hunter has just shot the giraffe and is posing with the dead body; once sitting, and then standing.

Africa Digest couldn’t bear this and wrote on their twitter: “White American savage who is partly a Neanderthal comes to Africa and shoot down a very rare black giraffe courtesy of South Africa stupidity. Her name is Tess Thompson Talley. Please share. [sic] If our so-called governments can’t care for our wildlife then its time we stand up and responsibility of our continent, lands, resources, and wildlife….share share share! and let’s have a united voice against pillage of Africa, it’s the only home we have [sic]”

Many people were naturally not happy with the post, but some people also took time to add some more thoughts in this manner.

One of the commenters expressed, “If the government cannot care about its citizens my dear what makes you think they even give two flying doves about an animal. Until we see the value of what we have, then we will never appreciate [sic]

Another Twitter user wrote, “SA Gov needs to change the laws to ban canned hunting on private game farms and everywhere else. There needs to be the political will to protect our wildlife& natural resources over profit. Also find the private ownership of wild animals & nature, morally & ethically foul. [sic]”

However, another user pointed out the specified racism in the post, saying, “I really have to ask who the “neanderthal” is who made this about the AMERICAN’s colour/race as it is of no consequence considering how many black poachers kill elephants and rhino’s in South Africa? Why not just say ‘savage American’ or is Africa Digest a bunch of racists [sic]”

According to Discover Wildlife, only between 2004 and 2014, people traded 1.7 million trophies. Around 20,000 animals each year were officially classified as threatened by the IUCN.
