A 12 year old girl has been getting death threats because of her photo she posted about a giraffe and impala she hunted and posed with.
Aryanna Gourdin is from Utah and recently she went on an African hunting trip. She took down some big animals , including a giraffe and impala, and was proud to show her accomplishment on social media. She has been getting lots of criticism on the internet, as well as death threats.
Aryanna doesn’t let the criticism get to her. “It’s something that I cherish and I enjoy and I want other people to see what I’ve been able to experience,” she said on Good Morning America recently, defending her hunting trip to South Africa.
Aryanna received more than 70,000 comments about her posted picture. Some were positive, but more were negative. One person wrote, “you and your redneck father should be hunted.”
Aryanna is so enthusiastic about her experience, she just wants to share it with other people. “I want other women and youth to get into the hunting experiences,” she told GMA.
