More deplorable photos of a “trophy” hunter unfathomably basking in the glory of killing innocent animals have surfaced, further intensifying the outrage of animal advocates everywhere.
“Beautiful wild goat here on the Island of Islay in Scotland,” Larysa Switlyk, a Florida-born hunter and host of a reality series on Canada’s Wild TV, boasted on social media earlier this month. ”Such a fun hunt!! They live on the edge of the cliffs of the island and know how to hide well. We hunted hard for a big one for two days and finally got on this group. Made a perfect 200-yard shot.”
Switlyk, who describes herself as a “professional hunter,” appears to supplement her income by promoting hunting tours such as the one in Scotland by posting photos along with her email address, email@example.com, for those interested in participating in the travesty.
“I’m headed out on a bush plane for my next hunting adventure and will be out of service for two weeks. Nothing better than disconnecting from this social media driven world and connecting back with nature.” Switlyk advised yesterday on her Twitter account in response to the backlash she has been receiving. “Hopefully that will give enough time for all the ignorant people out there sending me death threats to get educated on hunting and conservation.”
Comedian and avid animal advocate Ricky Gervais took to his Facebook page to share his disgust. Gervais is among the thousands of people speaking out in response to the heartless photos and, as always, against “Trophy” Hunting.
While the Scottish Government replied by noting that responsible and appropriate culling of some wild animals, including deer and goats, is not illegal, it has agreed to review the controversial cull laws and consider whether changes to them are required.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon even said on Twitter that it is “Totally understandable why the images from Islay of dead animals being held up as trophies are so upsetting and offensive to people.”
Switlyk also posted photos of other animals she killed during the Scotland hunting trip including another goat and a ram.
How many more animals need to be savagely murdered by sub-humans that take pride in posing next to their dead bodies like “trophies?”
And, she and other Trophy Hunters call animal advocates ignorant?
Trophy Hunting Puts The “Con” In Conservation!
