New Zealand Hunter receives death threats after posting kills online
A female hunter in New Zealand has come under fire for posing in revealing outfits on Instagram with the animals she has killed.
Lucy Jaine, a mother of three from the South Island, has received death threats online after posting an image of two goats she killed during a recent hunt.
"What is the point of killing a goat? Tables should be turned," wrote one user, posting a series of gun and knife emojis.
"The earth is dying for people like you," wrote another.
The 29-year-old, who doesn't directly address the comments on Instagram, told The Sun newspaper she hunts with her family to avoid factory farming.
"The animals are living a good life. I don't support factory farming and we prefer organic. It's free, it's fun and it helps the farmers," said Ms Jaine.
"We gut, skin and clean the animals. Then we cut it up and pop it in the freezer to eat.
"The kids love the adventure. We don't do screens in our family. Being in the wilderness so much really sparks their imaginations."
Not all of Ms Jaine's followers believe her photos are doing a disservice to the image of hunters.
"Awesome hunting, good job. God gave us the meat, we need it," wrote one fan.
"If you hunt to feed your family I don't see anything wrong with it," wrote another.
"Keep up your hunting. This is humane and very sustainable" wrote a third.
Ms Jaine currently boasts more than 14,000 followers, and had been running a Facebook fan page which has since been deactivated.
