Aside from cheerleading, 19-year-old Kendall Jones’ hobbies involve hunting for and killing threatened animals and posting the photo evidence of the dead animals onto her Facebook page, Kendall Takes Wild.

Jones, a blonde cheerleader from Texas Tech University, takes pride in hunting big African game, including lions, tigers, buffalos, leopards and rhinos — including a threatened white rhino, of which there are only 20,000 remaining.

Jones wants to host a TV show by 2015, even having camera crews follow her on her hunting expeditions.

There’s a petition to get her to stop and to get Mark Zuckerberg to take down her animal cruelty photos, along with several thousand angry comments on her Facebook page:

‘I think we should dress you and your crew up like the animals you’ve killed and will use are guns to hunt y’all. Your nothing but a dumb teen who wants to be on TV, well great start to your already failing career and life choice. People like you have no right to walk this earth you’ll never be able to say anything to justify your actions.’

‘This is absolutely despicable. How can you kill such a majestic animal. You are absolute scum. I hope a gorgeous African animal takes it’s own revenge on you one day for all the beautiful souls you have shot.’

‘I’m a hunter and proud of that. That being said I eat what I shoot and only hunt overpopulated animals that other wise would starve or get diseased.’

Jones maintains that what she’s doing is legal and that she’s protecting reserves because there isn’t always space for such threatened animals to roam free.

She says,

People try to say that lions will not attack a hippo, rhino or elephant, quite the contrary. Lions attack and kill the young of these species.

Controlling the male lion population is important within large fenced areas like these. Funds from a hunt like this goes partially to the government for permits but also to the farm owner as an incentive to keep and raise lions on their property.

Facebook users, despite her comments, continue expelling their disgust towards Jones.
