Female Hunter Under Attack For Taking Selfie With Dead Giraffe [PHOTOS]

By: Evan Jankens

I will start this blog by saying I am not a fan of hunting.

It has never once sounded appealing to me to sit outside in cold weather and wait for hours and hours -- and maybe never even see an animal.

I really don't care if you are a hunter or not, that doesn't mean anything to me. My brother-in-law is a big hunter, my grandfather was as well. It's just not my cup of tea.

Personally, I think if you like that type of thing then go for it.

You might remember back in 2014 when a Texas Tech cheerleader Kendall Jones was in hot water because she posed in pictures with dead big game.

Friday, there is another blonde who is getting all types of attention for her selfie with a dead giraffe.

Comedian Ricky Gervais has gone to his twitter account to call out, host of 'Eye of the Hunter' Rebecca Francis.

According to

The Utah mother - who has previously hunted animals including zebras, lynx, bears, deer and elks - defended herself by saying the giraffe was "inevitably going to die soon".

The picture, which Francis said was taken five years ago, was shared again on social media this week after TV star Gervais posted it on Twitter on Monday.

With all the backlash, Rebecca Francis took to Facebook to stick up for herself.

Do you think big game hunting should be banned?
