US huntress draws flak for posting pics with dead animals
AN American huntress has drawn the ire of netizens after posting pictures of herself with her trophy hunts, including a dead giraffe, on social media.
On July 22, Sabrina Corgatelli posted a photo of her plane ticket with the caption: “Just waiting to start my long journey to South Africa.”
The Telegraph reported that Corgatelli’s hunting site was a private conservancy 20 kilometers from South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
Four days after, Corgatelli posted photos of her first kill, an African antelope with a striped body and spiral horns called a kudu.
“Yesterday was day 1 an amazing day!!! Got my beautiful beautiful Kudu!! It was my #1 want on my list and I got him on the first day!!! Loving it there!!” she said in the caption.
On the same day, the huntress posted photos of a dead giraffe, saying that killing it gave her a feeling that she would never forget.
“Day #2 I got [an] amazing old Giraffe. Such [an] amazing animal!! I couldn’t be any happier!! My emotion after getting him was a feeling I will never forget!!!” Corgatelli said.
In the following days, Corgatelli posted photos of dead warthog, blue wildebeest, a 13-foot crocodile, and an impala, which she called as “one of Africa’s icons.”
“What a fun hunt!!! Loving it here!! The guys at old days safari in South Africa have got me on another amazing animal,” she said.
On August 1, the huntress also posted biblical passages in what appeared to be a move to justify her killings against criticisms.
“Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything,” she said, quoting Genesis 9:3. YG
