We came across a shocking article today of a lady who takes great pleasure in shooting wild animals – including majestic lions.
It made our stomachs turn to see trophy hunting taking place in today’s world, especially in such a publicised and glorified manner.
Winchester Daily Passion Presenter Melisa Bachman sparks outrage by posing with shot lion
Warning – article contains some disturbing images.
The article comes after (and contains a link to) a petition signed by thousands to ask the South African Government to not allow her to enter and shoot in their country.

Similar petitions have been successful in the past, including asking National Geographic to stop showing her television programme following her hunting.
What do you think about trophy hunting, including that of Lions?
