– 12-year-old girl likes to kill wild animals and share the images of their dead bodies on Facebook
– People call her an “animal hater” and “sick”
– Despite, she says she would never stop doing it because she is a true hunter by her nature
Aryanna Gourding shares the images of her and each dead creature on her Facebook page complete with captions bragging about the deaths, despite insisting she “loves” animals.
For doing it, people call her a “murderer”, “evil” and “animal hater.” She has even had death threats.
Despite, Aryanna vows she would never stop hunting and killing animals:
“I’m a hunter and no matter what people say to me I’m never going to stop. It’s something that I cherish and I enjoy and I want other people to see what I’ve been able to experience. I want other women and youth to get into the hunting experiences. It’s just awesome. We love animals too. It’s just, we also love hunting. I would never back down from hunting.”
She also claims the giraffe she killed in South Africa was an old bull and a “danger” to the rest of the herd and killing it will free up resources for other animals, ensuring “the species survives”.
International Trade Policy Specialist Masha Kalinina said: “When we allow children to participate in trophy hunting, instead of teaching them to respect creatures we are teaching them that it’s okay to kill for kicks and that animals are worth more dead than alive.”
So there’re a lot of different oppininons on the problem, but where’s the truth?
On one hand, Aryanna and her father kill animals on regular basis just because they’re “hunters” (but is it sufficient justification?). But onn the other hand, such killings could help natural conservation.
