World Outraged Over TV Presenter Melissa Bachman’s Hunted Lion Photo

Melissa Bachman hunts a lion and takes a photo smiling that outrages the world

The world angrily lashed out when Melissa Bachman posted a photo online of the dead lion she killed as she smiled and posed next to it. The internet went furious and started sharing the photo of the “leech” so that “nobody forgets her face.” A petition was also launched to ban her from South Africa, the location where she killed the lion.

The days where hunting is considered an applauded sport are gone. Now we have dwindling populations around the world. Sadly, even reserves that claim to have tigers in protection are sometimes found to be controversially without them. Animals are disappearing at a fast rate and attributed to global warming, deforestation and humans. The way things stand now with animal populations, this is the era of conservation and activism, not hunting.

On American TV networks today, Paul Watson is seen ferociously fighting whale and dolphin poachers in the Pacific, National Geographic is constantly traveling to the last remote places left on the planet while just last week the Obama Administration authorized the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to crush 6 tons and 25 years worth of confiscated ivory. The public crushing was considered a symbolic message to end the ivory trade. Now, the American TV presenter, Melissa Bachman, posts pictures that gloat her latest kill. It is estimated that only around 15,000 lions are left in the whole of Africa. In response, the world rallied against her.

The outrage Melissa Bachman faces not only includes public shaming in the media but also furious rage against her on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook. All her social media accounts had to be shut down following the backlash. The lion she hunted in the photo is now being defended by the world and they are pissed she “stalked inside 60-yards on this beautiful male lion – what a hunt!”  The expression marks in the photo’s caption parallel with her gloating smile.

This is not her first back-lashing experience. Melissa Bachman is a longtime hunter and has many photographs of her kills. There is even a “Trophy Room” section on her website featuring more than 60 photos of her dead animals. In 2012, 13,000 people signed a petition to remove her as a contestant on the National Geographic program Ultimate Survival Alaska. The voices were heard and she was removed.

Melissa Bachman kills a lion on a hunt and outrages the world when she smiled in the photo

The latest petition, entitled “The Government of the Republic of South Africa: Deny future entry to Melissa Bachman,” was started by Elan Burman from Cape Town.  It has garnered 103,000 supporters all encouraging the government of South Africa to banish her from ever returning.

The anti Melissa Bachman petitioners left comments on the petition such as how she is a contradiction to the conservation of the country, how animals are not trophies and how the animals have no chance against guns.

One signatory, Richard Robinson, pointed out the reality when he said, “you didn’t kill a lion, you stood behind a machine and pulled a little trigger, you pathetic, sad excuse of a human.”

Melissa Bachman may not understand we are in an age of conservation. World outrage might help her grasp that point since statistics on dwindling reserves failed. In the meantime, as media spreads her crime, news outlets warn audiences that the photos of her hunted and dead lion plus other animals might be “distressful” to see. Melissa Bachman, the TV presenter now famous for cruelty, can be accessed on YouTube while her Facebook and Twitter are deactivated. Warning: videos may cause distress to onlookers.

    Biggest cunt alive on this planet. Someone just shoot her and then smile over her-dead body. Seriously, it would be fair.

    Ony people on the jerk end of the continuum of humanity hunt animals for sport. They have no chance against a high powered rifle. A “cowards only” sport

    Stay the hell out of South Africa – you better not put your feet here again bloody cruel woman. I hope you loose everything you have due to your disgusting bragging spree! If you managed to shoot that lion so easily its because it was raised as a pet you moron. When the mature they are used for canned hunting. They have no instinct to fight or flight because they were taught to trust humans. Go to hell!

    Hunting defenseless animals seems to give Melissa Bachman a tremendous orgasm. I would suggest her to swap her gun for a sextoy. The effect would be the same and it surely would be safer for the nature protection and endangered species.

    I do not understand this woman’s smile, full of dazzling white teeth and emanating vast joy, delight, satisfaction and stunning power, blazing her triumph over a neckfull of jewellery. I just do not understand what she gets out of this (or any other) kill. Is Melissa simply a would-be gladiator, a ‘bestiarius’ or hunter of wild beasts in the Roman Colosseum? Or is that smile telling her public she is having a nuclear ‘sexual event’? Or is that her ego plastered all over her face – she has to be good at something? Or is that dazzle all about abuse she herself has suffered. Psychologists please speak up! Help here! Please.

    I don’t think that hunting a lion with a telescopic sight is sportsmanship. If she tracked the lion on foot through the bush without a telescopic sight and without a tracker and a vehicle, perhaps I would then be prepared to think of it as hunting, but to be led by a tracker out into the African bush with all the mod cons, have the lion pointed out to you and then line up the shot with a telescopic sight. What a farce, you are no hunter, maybe a sharp shooter but definitely not a hunter!

    SRobison sounds like an American that knows so much about a lion pride….Fact: male lions are a critical part in the survival of eco balance of lions, genius. They have a harem of lionesses and cubs that are their offspring, and wont kill them unless they take over another male’s pride. This is the way nature intended and it’s natural. But, by destroying one male, chances are this dead male’s pride (harem) will now be unprotected to be killed by another male. So Melissa just ensured the death of other innocent females and cubs.

    Hey Melissa Bachman.

    In South Africa we have a problem with Poaching. Maybe we can send you after the Poachers. Instead of you killing animals in cages, you could go out on a real Safari and kill real prey. How are your tracking skills? Don’t worry, it is all legal. In South Africa we are allowed to kill people too, when the Government agree to it.
    You can even use your telescopic sights to make it a bit easier for you and reduce the danger to yourself.

    The nice side of this is that instead of you paying for an easy kill (Canned Animals), the South African Government will pay you! It will be like working on a special mission for the army. Now that is a great concept.

    Don’t worry about a visa or anything. I am sure Zuma Airlines can get you in. We can film the hunt too. Make Dvds. Call it #Predator and sell many copies. We can donate the money to conservation, and feel good about it all. You can even bring your friends along and in so doing, contribute to the SA Economy. This way everyone wins. You never know, maybe people will start to like again and we can put you back on TV?
