A 12 year old Utah girl is getting death threats because she is a hunter. Aryanna Gourdin and her dad went to South Africa to participate in a hunt that benefits conservation.
Aryanna posted a picture of her with a giraffe that she hunted. This led to the death threats on her Facebook page Braids and Bows. Her father said that people who are wishing harm to his daughter don’t understand that hunting actually helps conservation efforts.
Eli Gourdin said the giraffe is nowhere near extinction and too many giraffes harm conservation efforts. All of the meat was given to hungry villagers as you can see in the video below.
There is no reason to wish death upon a 12 year old. These people who are threatening her probably enjoy their hamburgers without realizing where it came from.
Hunting is part of life. Picking up your food at a grocery store doesn’t make it any less dead. It just means you have been sanitized from the experience. There is no reason to cyber bully or threaten a child for legally hunting.
Please share this to let Aryanna know that plenty of people support her!
