People have always raised questions about whether or not hunting should be ethical.
Some speak in favor of it, while others strongly oppose the idea.
However, there are some instances when even its supporters think that the hunter crossed the line.
Such was the case when a hunter from Kentucky received heavy criticism for shooting a rare giraffe specie and posing with its corpse to post pictures on social media.
The images became viral and received massive backlash from several people.
People thought that killing a defenseless animal and posting pictures of its body while smiling was quite appalling.
That wasn’t all, as there was another image where the hunter posed with her arms around the dead giraffe’s neck.
People did not take too kindly to this act, and some of them retaliated with fiery anger.
There were protests and petitions to arrest the hunter, but sadly, no one took action.
Shameless Trophy Hunting For Online Clout
While social media has several benefits, it has its downsides too.
Quite a lot of people utilize online platforms to feed their narcissistic egos.
They post controversial things and contrarian opinions to get attention.
Some people take things a bit too far and do stuff that they usually wouldn’t do.
They pull dangerous pranks, say unpopular things (some of which they don’t believe themselves), and post controversial content to get people to pay attention to them.
It seems like the hunter, Tess Thompson, is one of those people as well.
Some people may argue that her reasons could be different, but when you look at how proud she was with what she did, her guilt becomes more evident than daylight.
Furthermore, this was not the first time Tess killed an animal to garner recognition.
She has been doing it for quite a while and is proud of it.
The most infuriating thing is that she brags about these kills as if they are a significant accomplishment.
