The hunt has sparked not one, but two online petitions protesting the hunt. In all, more than 70,000 people have signed them.
But the protest has also sparked a bitter backlash, apparently among the contestants who don't take kindly to outsiders telling them their squirrel-hunting business.
"We're just horrified," says Karen, who is also an admin for the Facebook page New Harmony Missionary Baptist Church Killing The Innocent. "They somehow were able to find out who we, as page admins, are, and Photoshopped pictures of us, sent us private messages, posted our private contact information."
