Remember, Melissa Backman, the hunter who sparked outrage from South Africans after she posted pics on Facebook of herself smiling behind a dead male lion she killed in SA HERE? Well another female hunter from the US, Rebecca Francis is getting slammed on social media after comedian Ricky Gervais tweeted a picture of her smiling next to a dead giraffe she killed on a hunting safari in Africa. Based on the info on her website and Youtube i’m assuming it’s South Africa since she mentions visiting Kusini African Safaris which is based in Pretoria.
Anyways..here’s the pic Ricky Gervais tweeted yesterday which has cast the spotlight on Francis and her hunting.
Francis has a website with plenty of pics of animals she’s hunted including those in South Africa and there are several videos of her killing animals with a bow…including a giraffe while accompanied by a SA game ranger.
Needless to say the comments directed at Francis for smiling next to that giraffe are not very pleasant.
Here’s the video of her killing the giraffe, but be warned…it’s not for sensitive viewers.
Now go tell her how we feel about killing animals and smiling about it. She also has a Facebook page which is easy to find.
