A petition calling for a teenage hunter to remove horrific photos of herself with big game she'd killed has already gained over 40,000 signatures. 19-year-old Texan Kendall Jones recently posted photos of her hunting trip in Zimbabwe -- grisly scenes of herself grinning in front of the carcasses of a springbok, leopard, elephant and lion.
One of the photos showing Jones posing with the body of a springbok is captioned:
"Another harvest for today.... White springbok, it's 1 of the 4 color shades of this animal! And let me tell you it's one of my favorite kinds of meat so far!"
She also darted a white rhino with a tranquilizer gun, reportedly so that a veterinarian could take blood samples. Commenters have left outraged comments on nearly all of her photos, ranging from pleads to stop hunting to threats. The Facebook petition reads:
"For the sake of all animals, especially the animals in the African region... where hunters are going for fun just to kill an animal! Some people have been reporting the pages lately but it seems Facebook is not concerned about what Kendall Jones is promoting in her page."
