A Minnesota-based television presenter and big-game hunter has drawn outrage after she posted a photo of herself posing with a lion she had just shot and killed in South Africa.


Melissa Bachman posted a photo to her Facebook account of herself smiling next to the carcass of the lion with her rifle in one hand.

"An incredible day hunting in South Africa! Stalked inside 60-yards on this beautiful male lion,'" Bachman wrote. "What a hunt!"

The photo quickly went viral, drawing outrage from animal lovers and inspired Cape Town resident Elan Burman to start a change.org petition asking the South African government to ban Bachman from the country for her actions

"She is an absolute contradiction to the culture of conservation, this country prides itself on," the petition reads. "As tax payers we demand she no longer be granted access to this country and its natural resources."
