Obnoxious cruelty for Jesus: Trophy hunter Tess Thompson Talley is defending her senseless killing of a “rare black giraffe.”
In a since-deleted post on Facebook, Talley posted a photo of her and the dead giraffe, writing:
Prayers for my once in a lifetime dream hunt came true today! Spotted this rare black giraffe bull and stalked him for quite awhile.
Talley, a trophy hunter from Kentucky, killed the giraffe last year. However, recently Africa Digest posted a tweet expressing outrage at the senseless, cowardly, and cruel killing of the magnificent animal, while calling Talley a “white american savage,” and encouraging others to share the story of her despicable actions:
White american savage who is partly a neanderthal comes to Africa and shoot down a very rare black giraffe coutrsey of South Africa stupidity. Her name is Tess Thompson Talley. Please share pic.twitter.com/hSK93DOOaz

The tweet went viral. And Twitter exploded with rage over the senseless and despicable act. For example:
Tess Thompson Talley from Nippa, Kentucky is a disgusting, vile, amoral, heartless, selfish murderer. With joy in her black heart and a beaming smile she lies next to the dead carcass of… https://t.co/gG9CWX4oXl

TESS THOMPSON TALLEY.
Where is the fun in killing such a beautiful animal. Why do human beings think it’s acceptable to go around killing innocent beautiful creatures, FOR FUN.

The sad truth is that cowardly and morally deficient trophy hunters like Talley travel to Africa every year to engage in canned hunts and collect “trophies” such as warthogs, elephants, zebras, lions, and yes, even giraffes, with entire tour companies dedicated to the so-called “sport.”
Those who would try to defend the immoral act of trophy hunting claim that it is a necessary evil, and that the trophy hunters, by paying large fees to guides and governments for the perverse pleasure of killing an animal for sport, are somehow helping conservation efforts. This is false.
Research shows that it is a myth that trophy hunting supports wildlife conservation. The fact is, trophy hunting does not help conservation efforts, although those who defend the cowardly sport often make such claims.
Make no mistake, trophy hunting is for immoral cowards with too much money and too little self-esteem. There is nothing brave or noble about killing exotic animals for sport. In fact, there is no “sport” in trophy hunting. Such activity is a perverse pursuit, and has no place in a civilized society.
Bottom line: Tess Thompson Talley, like all trophy hunters, is a deplorable and morally deficient human being; and she should be shamed and mocked for taking such perverse pleasure in the death and suffering of such a beautiful animal.
