Huntress Causes Outrage After Posting Photo Of Dead Giraffe On Facebook And Saying She “Couldn’t Be Happier”

by Emmy Griffiths Published on 3 August 2015

You’d think that the overwhelmingly negative response to the death of Cecil the lion would have opened hunter’s eyes to what they are doing, and have them realise that murdering animals for sport could be considered wrong. However, Sabrina Corgatelli is the latest huntress to cause controversy after posting photos of her posing with dead animals, most notably a giraffe. Ugh.

The US student took a trip to South Africa in late July, and has so far killed a kudu, a giraffe, a wart hog, a wildebeest, a crocodile and an impala on her hunt. As well as posting photos of herself posing next to her kills with eye heart emojis, she commented: “Day #2 I got a (sic) amazing old Giraffe! Such a (sic) amazing animal! I couldn’t be any happier!! My emotion after getting him was a feeling I will never forget!!!”

Unsurprising, the huntress’s heartless bragging has had people shocked and disgusted, especially after the student posted a bible quote on her page, seemingly to justify her actions:

Genesis 9:3 says, "Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you...

Despite the overwhelming negative response to her photos, she responded saying: “All you haters, this is for you! Have a great day, cuz I know I will!”

She also posted a picture of the Great Gatsby which was captioned: “To all the haters – stay tuned, you’re gonna have so much more to be p***ed about.”

Corgatelli’s actions are particularly controversial after the illegal hunt of Cecil the lion, a tagged lion who was lured out of a reserve then beheaded and scalped. This hunt caused worldwide outrage and called for the American dentist who killed the animal to be extradited to Zimbabwe to face charges.

However, the huntress has since defended her actions, claiming: "I have done EVERYTHING legally so why should (sic) I not post?? If people don't want to see don't look. They are coming to my page, I'm not posting it on theirs."

Does anyone want to explain this kind of isn't the point?! So what do you think? Should hunting for sport be banned? Tweet us @sofeminineUK!
