Huntress Shoots Black Giraffe, Stands Her Ground amid Social Media Backlash

Latest news

    Another person wrote: “I can’t imagine killing anything, let alone a defenseless animal who can’t shoot you back you…What a sad state of affairs when human beings can actually do this. Shame on everyone and anyone who defends this type of behavior.”

    Actress Debra Messing denounced Talley as “disgusting, vile,” and “amoral” on Twitter:

    But Talley stood her ground. She told Fox News that the giraffe was dark because of its age and explained that the number of such giraffes is actually increasing because of hunting: “The giraffe I hunted was the South African sub-species of giraffe. The numbers of this sub-species is actually increasing due, in part, to hunters and conservation efforts paid for in large part by big game hunting. The breed is not rare in any way other than it was very old. Giraffes get darker with age.”

    She added, “I get that hunting is not for everyone; that’s what makes this world great is the differences. But to make threats to anyone because they don’t believe the way you do is completely unacceptable. If it was any other belief that was different, threats and insults would be deemed hideous. However, for some reason it is OK to act this way because it’s hunting.”
