    What is interesting is the attitude and language of the liberal segment of society that will attack anyone in such a vulgar manner. They seem to think that anything that is not part of their agenda can be attacked in any way including gutter language . Melissa is a success in her field and has earned my admiration and full support.


    Looks very similar to this picture:

    Could it be done tourist souvenir photo with a stuffed Lion?


    MALE hunters have killed animals, had tv shows, etc. FOR DECADES. From Fred Bear to Ted Nugent. Whether they eat the meat or not is up to them. Zebras, Lions, Antelope, Baboons. I'm sorry, but it is clearly sexist. Those who rant and rave are making fools of themselves. Society is so superficial. Look inside yourselves and find out where you are REALLY coming from. Is it her success you losers can't handle? It is obvious not just the hunting and killing. Or you would have complained years ago.


    I hope that smile is fake.. If she feels happy killing an innocent animal , then something wrong with her character. Idc if your a man or women, you wont be treated differently. Yea,h Lions are not endangered but they are classified as VUNERABLE!.


    No, I don't agree with her hunting and killing an animal that won't be used in any way. But people are going absolutely overboard with the tweets, calling her a cunt and a vile human and saying they hope she dies in pain. That's what's truly disgusting here.


    Wait a minute. What's going on here? It is legal to hunt lions. They are raised to be hunted on private land. They are not endangered. My husband has hunted game in South Africa. He has a credit card with a picture of him smiling over a kill. No one cares. I think it is a MALE SPORT that men are supposed to do and not women. Veiled sexism. The outpouring of criticism is unjustified. It will hurt the South African economy. The people criticizing are in the wrong: It is legal. Change the laws if you disagree. (Oh yeah, make it illegal for women to hunt!)


    Male of female,makes not a dot of difference..The Womans a Grub!!.




    "What a hunt"? I would say: "What a stupid hunter!". How many lions remaining there to be hunted? Kill them all! And everything just for fun, to take that damn stupid picture with the poor animal. People are heartless and mostly: brainless. That's all I have to say.
