PHOTOS - Shouldn't This be Illegal???

Melissa Bachman is a television personality from Minnesota. She has a hunting television show and hunting is exactly what she does and what she's been doing for years.

Her latest adventure has people around the world outraged. They think she's gone too far. Here's the picture everybody is talking about...

Here's her tweet amplified...

Yes, she killed an African lion while in South Africa...

Before you start accusing, let me tell you that unbelievably, hunting lions in South Africa is NOT illegal! The African lion is NOT an "endangered" species; they are considered "vulnerable."

Nonetheless, there's a Change.org petition with more than 150,000 signatures asking the government of South Africa to "deny future entry" to Bachman.

Now, Melissa didn't just go there on her own, her hunting was facilitated by the Maroi Conservancy, who wrote this on their facebook... "We are not apologising for facilitating the hunt. As for all the negative commentary towards us, please consider how much you have contributed to conservation in the past 5 years. If you are not a game farmer and struggling with dying starving animals, poaching and no fences in place to protect your animals and crop, please refrain from making negative degoratory comments. It is so easy to judge if you are staying in cities and towns [all sic]." They also mentioned that meat from the animals goes to a local community, while the funds hunting generates are used to help fix a border fence, combat poaching and run a "sustainable conservancy."

So, what do you think? Are you mad at Melissa and she should be banned from ever entering South Africa again? Or do you think it was her damn right to hunt as long as it was legal?

More pictures of her adventures??? Here you go...
