This stupid woman calls herself a Big Game Hunter, what she does not tell you is that these endangered species, Elephants, Rhino and Lions, are bred in captivity, Once full grown they are moved into a fenced area, where people like this dim witted woman can simply walk up and shoot them, using high powered rifles with telescopic sights. From a hundred yards with a telescopic sight she simply could not miss. Just look at her silly smiling smug face. What a great achievement shooting a captive animal.
Would love to see her thrown into the Lions den of her local zoo, wonder what her face would look like then
“Melissa Bachman, a keen hunter who makes TV programs on the American outdoors, posted a photograph on Facebook and Twitter of her holding a rifle and smiling beside the corpse of a male lion. Shot for fun.
This practice is legal in South Africa, indeed it is a highly prized section of their Tourism income.

The easy slaughter of animals in fenced areas is called “canned hunting”, perhaps because it’s rather like shooting fish in a barrel. A fully-grown, captive-bred lion is taken from its pen to an enclosed area where it wanders listlessly for some hours before being shot dead by a man with a shotgun, hand-gun or even a crossbow, standing safely on the back of a truck. He pays anything from £5,000 to £25,000, and it is all completely legal.
