Kendall Jones: Slammed by PETA, Defended by Dad

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kendall Jones remains a hot topic of Internet conversation.

And, no, that's not a reference to the blonde cheerleader's looks.

The Texas Tech student has come under MAJOR fire online this week for posting photo after photo of herself sitting near the bodies of dead animals, many of which are endangered and all of which she killed herself in Africa.

Jones has defended herself by simply saying she's a "hunter" and only goes after "overpopulated" animals... but PETA isn't buying it.

Kendall Jones with Dead Leopard
Kendall Jones poses here with a dead leopard. She killed it herself and posted the shot on Facebook, much to the ire of other users.

"Her only interest is slaughtering wildlife for a cheap thrill," says the company via statement, adding Jones is "in a desperate quest to secure a macabre reality show."

The collegian has admitted that she hopes to host her own series by 2015.

Her dad, meanwhile, says his daughter mercy killed the lion alongside whom she’s posing above, as this animal was too old too keep up with its pack.

He also says Kendall didn’t even kill the rhino in another picture, that it was injured, tranquilized and taken to a vet.

Mr. Jones insists his child only murders leopards, elephants and lions that are NOT on the endangered species list.

It's a contentious issue all around. Where do YOU stand on Kendall Jones?

None of these animals are on an endangered species list. Journalism FTW.

Everyone needs to leave this girl alone. She has done nothing wrong!!! So she likes to hunt big damn deal. People all around the world hunt and kill animals everyday. I don't see anyone making this big of a deal over someone killing a deer, or cow, or pig. People do it everyday and post it online and no ones says one word but let someone go over to Africa and kill something then its like all you judgmental people then have something to say. I don't see all you thumpers around when people are killing other things. People just need to shut up and leave this girl alone. GET OFF YOUR SOAP BOXES!!!! I guarantee you all do something that someone else doesn't agree with or doesn't like and you don't see any of us putting you on blast. YOU ALL SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!!!! You go girl I support you!!!!!

Wise words by Albert Schweitzer:
"The time will come when public opinion will no longer tolerate amusements based on the mistreatment and killing of animals. The time will come, but when? When will we reach the point that hunting, the pleasure of killing animals for sport, will be regarded as a mental aberration?"
(She's delusional - just plain stark raving mad.)

I see nothing honorable whatsoever in killing something you're not going to eat. It's a waste, and spiritually speaking, it sucks. Karma will exact its pound of flesh from her and those like her eventually. Just watch!!!

It's okay for people to wear what they want and have abortions, but this girl is taking the meat from these animals and then using it to feed starving people in Africa, not wasting the animal, she is bad. Killing animals is a NATURAL thing and if you disagree, you need to go read your history again. She is not wasting the animal, like some hunters do, so should not be shamed!

One picture shows her with a leopard, another with a rhino, neither of which is generally "food" meat.
Plus, in many of these events, she's paid hundreds of thousands of dollars just to purchase a permit to hunt/kill these animals, not including the travel and equipment expenses. Do you know how many people you can feed in Africa with hundreds of thousands of dollars?
Far more than you can feed on the meat of one animal pal.

I hate Peta. Police kill more people for jay walking, standing around or just because they don't like the way they look. Peta could care less how man people are murdered by the police. But kill an animal and all hell breaks out.

That's because there are laws that protect people, and when those laws are broken, there are advocates ready and willing to step in to enforce them.
Not so much for animals. When it comes to them, they often have few advocates.

I don't agree with killing an animal for just for fun.
I do hope she is planning on eating the meat herself! I don't think she understands how precious life is until she has children of her own.
Very sad for her smiles

Does she kill old people too if they can't keep up with "the pack?"

Remove them if you must but no hides, heads or even photos. No trophy is kept. The hunter will still pay for the access to "remove" the animal.

Trophy hunting animals in their natural habitat is........ MURDER, if they are not killed for food.These people want to kill and hang a head on the wall. If it is to go on the dinner table, fine but to kill just for the fun of killing is sick. Here's an Idea, instead of killing rare exotic animals, kill domestics. We have millions of dogs and cats. No shortage there. Imagine your trophy room filled with dead Dachshunds, German Sheperds, Boarder Collies, Golden Retrievers, Yellow and Black Labs and the ever elusive French Poodle. Thinks about all those yappy ankle biters you could brag about. "Then in this room is where I display my cats, starting with Siamese, Calico, etc. These are much harder to get than dogs. Look under your feet, this rug is made of different cat hides. Check out my jacket. Gives a new meaning to 'dog collar.'" There's something sick about a person that would want to kill an exotic animal. If it has become a danger to humans and other domestic animals, fine but it is not to be a trophy head or hide on the wall. These are nature's master pieces and you want to kill them? You want them to stop living? You want them to stop breeding? You want to show off the animal you killed with a high powered rifle, a scope, guides with spotting scopes and brag about it? Even if this animal needs to be "removed," it should not be a trophy hunt for a killer. They should have to pay for the privilege of the hunt but not be given the head or hide. I'm all for hunting but I was taught not shot anything that I wasn't going to eat.

IMO - "There's something sick about a person that would want to kill" any animal they aren't going to eat themselves, and there's something VERY wrong with people who abuse or use them for entertainment too. They're as sacred as we are. If they weren't, our mutual Creator would have ended their lives long ago.
