12-Year-Old Hunter Brushes Off Death Wishes Leveled Against Her

After bearing the brunt of online bullying and death wishes two weeks ago after posting a photo of herself standing with a giraffe she’d shot in South Africa, 12-year-old big-game hunter Aryanna Gourdin this week said, “I’m never going to stop [hunting],” and “I would never back down from hunting,” according to a story in London’s Mirror

As Breitbart has reported, after Gourdin posted photos of her latest hunt on Facebook, she became a target for social media outrage and hatred, with one activist posting, “When somebody shoots you I hope I can post the same picture on my Facebook, with your head in my hand ...” 

But as the young huntress pointed out in an Aug. 19 appearance on “Fox & Friends,” the meat from that giraffe was enough to feed a village. Furthermore, she asked, “How could you value an animal’s life over a human’s?”
