A Kentucky woman has come under flaming for posing with a black giraffe she gunned down on a hunting last year after an African news store recently tweeted out the photos.
Now that she’s faced with the smokey cask of Twitter anger, Tess Thompson Talley has come up with quite the protection tactic: accusing the backlash on the fact that she’s a woman.
AfricLand Post called the hunter a “white american savage who is partly a neanderthal” in the June 16 post, which evidenced photographs of her kneeling and triumphantly pointing towards the sky in front of the animal she killed on a June 2017 hunting trip.

While it’s unclear what percent neanderthal Thompson Talley really is, plenty of responders were ready to pounce on the targeted predator for participating in South Africa’s most well known tourism activity.
AKA animal murder.
But the hunter isn’t here for it. Not merely did she defend the kill in a statement to Today, calling the program activities “conservation through game management, ” she claimed she was only getting so much better heat because of her gender.
Arguing that detesting on her was counter-productive to the female empowerment movement, Thompson Talley clarified 😛 TAGEND
“For all the people wishing fatality or even threatening death to me, this does nothing positive for your’ motion, ‘ it simply shows the world how lopsided your priorities are. The very same picture could have been posted, and are posted daily, of men with their accolades and not a word is said.”
She persisted 😛 TAGEND
“It is by far wives that hunt who catch more heartache from the’ tolerant’ and’ all loving’ animal rights activists. It’s sickening to the majority of people how ladies are treated all over “the worlds”, except in the case of women hunters. You people call yourselves compassionate and care, yet some of “the worlds largest” odiou things have been sent at me and many other women hunters.”
Hold on a second. We have never seen any evidence of women treated worse for this. We’ve surely ever heard anyone hurl any sexist language a hunter’s course — perhaps she misheard everyone screaming the word “butcher”?
Anyway, moving forward, let’s all merely make doubly sure females hunters are treated with the same disgust and outrage as their male counterparts.
Oh, they already are? Great, consider this to be we’re done here.
