    I wouldn't worry about death threats if I were her. The Liberal keyboard warriors are cowards.

    I think this little girl and her father are dealing with the extremists with class. The article makes the mob anger directed at her seem very irrational.

    Social media cowards. It's amazing how brave people become when they don't have to stand toe to tie with another person. Gone are the days of showing a little respect and having some class about what a person says. I wonder if ancient Rome began its fall from glory just like this, to the applaud of the mob.

    A tough girl for sticking to what she loves. Stay strong.

    Sadly, its just another day in the world of uninformed and emotional liberals. Yes good to see the hunters supporting her and her dad's responses

    The picture of her foot on the giraffe, hand on hip and her gun in the air was asking for trouble. You have to be careful since Cecil incident. At this past PHASA Convention they talked in detail about social media postings and how to be respectful. Still the girl should never apologize for being a hunter. She was legal and has a right to be proud of her kills. Funny how these same anti hunters will make death threats towards her legal hunting while supporting the mass murder of one millions babies every year here in the USA.

    exactly. If we had a dollar for every whackjob who threatened to beat us to death with an organic carrot we'd be rich. I believe that the great Dean Wormer from Animal House best described the keyboard commandos threatening us. "Fat, Drink and Stupid is no way to go though life"

    Is there anyway we can show support for this young lady? I feel like if we can show that we have her back, it might start to show we have each others back, and this keyboard warrior tough guy stuff might slack off.

    I would be willing to put up the money to get her an AfricaHunting.com hat or something. Just throwing out ideas.

    Using social media is the same thing as posting a photo on a billboard in downtown Dallas with your name and phone number prominently displayed in order to invite public comment. Or it is like taking a traditional personal photo album, setting it out in the middle of city hall/park/wherever with a pen next to it, and inviting the general public to write in comments. I suspect few of the pre-millennials on this site would think that was wise behavior. No she doesn't deserve it, but the facebook generation needs to wake up.

    You're absolutely right Red Leg. There will be a lot of "rude awakenings" in the future when the door of opportunity closes in the face of all these kids who've posted things that will come back to haunt them.

    Sad that anti hunters are not anti killing of a human being.

    The three animals that spark the most outrage with the Anti's.

    Elephant. Giraffe. Lion

    Maybe it's the movie culture, and animated video's that often have these animals as the loveable star?

    Tell us how you really feel, lol.

    I agree, what type of tough guy threatens a 12 year old girl. The only positive side, and I not sure if the young lady knows it, but by having this wackos post their hate she is doing more to undermine their cause then any type of advertisement or message we could ever put together. She is actually exposing them for who they are and more importantly she is standing her ground. Her family has raised a tough young lady and one to be proud of.

    I know we debate about the best way to show pictures or to brag or social media but I think it is important to remember that if we act lawfully and respect the animals (she has pictures praying with the animal) we will ultimately be the winning side as long as we stand up for what we believe.

    This is just one of the many, many reasons I recently shutdown my facebook, and don't have cable TV or satellite. If you watch the news you just get pissed off, if you go on FB and see how idiotic people are, you get pissed off. I am slowly isolating myself from the world so I don't live a pissed off life. We are living in a country where we only have 2 options for president- 1 is bad, the other is worse, and we have no way out of it. Everyone wants to force everyone else's lives to what they believe in, instead of just living their own life and letting the rest do the same. It is a sad state the human race is in now and it's only going to get worse. We are running headlong into our own destruction and there aren't enough reasonable people left in the world to stop it
