Outrage at American woman who killed rare black giraffe in SA for fun

There are a few African countries that allow animals to be hunted for no other reason than sport.

Despite its economic and environmental ramifications, tourists who are willing to pay top bills are given access to kill animals that are often endangered.

Trophy hunting which is legal in Zambia, South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe can even prove to be lethal to human life.

In May 2017, a South African hunter named Theunis Botha was trampled on by an elephant in Zimbabwe.

A few months later in August, an Argentinian hunter by the name of Jose Monzalvez was also killed by an elephant in Namibia.

Pero Jelinic, a 75-year-old hotelier from the Croatian island of Pag was killed after hunting a lion in South Africa in January of this year.

Yet again, the South African government is being bombarded with heavy criticism for allowing Tess Thompson Talley, a white American woman to hunt a rare black giraffe.

Twitter users who are always ready to spot the latest injustice and shed light on it tweeted the following:
