Kentucky Woman Who Killed Rare Black Giraffe Says It Was For 'Conservation,' Blames Backlash On Being Female Hunter

By Mark LoProto

Another case of “trophy hunt” outrage swept across the internet recently, this time over the death of a suppossedly “very rare black giraffe."

In June 2017, a woman identified as Tess Thompson Talley posed with a black giraffe that she had killed, stating, 

“Prayers for my once in a lifetime dream hunt came true today!” 

Originally posted on Facebook, she has since deleted the image, which went on to explain the giraffe was “over 18 years old, 4,000 lbs, and was blessed to be able to get 2,000 lbs of meat from him.”
