Video – Texas cheerleader ‘hunted’ by social media protesters over photos hunting expedition
Free Patriot ^ | July 3 2014 | Kevin Fobbs

Posted on 07/03/2014 11:41:06 AM PDT by PoloSec

For a young Texas cheerleader who may be used to the supportive roars of the crowd, the 19-year-old hunter is now being subjected to a different roaring and it is all on social media. It seems that Kendall Jones, who attends Texas Tech University, has become the hunted instead of the hunter due to her posting of dead animals she killed in Africa and is pictured with on Facebook, according to Fox News.

It seems that animal protection police have decided to unleash their political correctness ammunition on her which has resulted in thousands of social media protests over her photos of animals she posed with. As protests over her alleged actions of posing with all dead animals, she responded by saying, that some of the animals she posed with were actually tranquilized not shot. She also mentioned that on all of her hunts she was involved were “fair chase” hunts.

Since liberals and PETA-type fanatics like to shoot first and never ask questions later, they missed the point of her animal postings and of her intentions while she was in Africa. She stressed, “While all of the ANTI Hunters were hiding behind a computer writing repulsive comments and issuing death threats to me, well I was out doing a White Rhino Green Hunt,” reported Fox News.

One of the benefits of her African trip she claims was being able to assist in helping a wounded white rhino that she darted. The animal’s leg wound was medicated and it also received shots of antibiotics. Yet, the animal lovers instead decided to target her and posted the tens of thousands of calls for Facebook to remove her animal photos.

Jones is not deterred or seemingly bothered by it. She position is clear, she stated, that she was, “doing my part

Lots of folks here on FR that don't understand how these hunts actually help preserve species.

I’m sure she has vastly more supporters than detractors, but the critics are the ones with the big mouths.

Someone sure blew that sentence..

Pretty girl, and kudos to her.

I know. We used to get the same stupidity with Deer hunting.

They consider themselves envitonmentalist but have absolutely no idea how nature works.

The old fashioned solution to avoid all this social media blowback is DON’T POST IT!!

Had a successful hunt? Wonderful! Take lots of pictures but share them only with those you know & trust and who share your love of hunting.

All kinds of creeps on the internet. Baring your personal life on Facebook is not only somewhat narcissistic but downright dangerous these days.

And IMO the biggest animal rights creeps are also the worst abortion facilitators.

Pretty girl ... and pretty impressive getting close enough to make the kill with a bow.

I’ve never been a fan of that “standing in triumph with your foot on the carcass” pose, though. It seems disrespectful.

Why hide and skulk in the shadows like a coward? It's time to get in their face, and not worry about blowback.

Live free, or die. It's not just a catchy state motto.

If you kill a male lion with a bow, I think you’ve earned the right to stand in triumph on the carcass.

< shrug >

It seems disrespectful. To me. I find it off-putting regardless of the animal. I don't like it, and I don't do it.

MHO. YMMV.

And I've never killed a lion of either sex ... maybe the experience would change my mind, but I doubt it.

'nuff said.

From what I’ve read she did this to get a reality show so all reactions give her media attention and maybe a tv show. She brought all this on herself on purpose so I guess she doesn’t have a problem with nuts attacking her hobby.

These "social media protesters" are morons; she's already proven she can handle a firearm and is probably a pretty good shot.

Much better for all African wildlife to be exterminated by poachers than a sustainable population exist because of hunting.

There’s only one thing wrong with the “social media”, and that is that the lazy-ass MSM uses it (I.e. Twitter, Facebook, et al) as their primary news source instead of going out and doing factual, investigative journalism.

Wildlife conservation is very simple:

Take an acre of land in your area that can support some critter, and add 10 critters of choice. Plenty of space, food, water, and shelter, right?

Now, let’s make that 20, or higher. Half the necessary items, twice the critters.

Wha’ hoppens next? Not enough food, not enough water, not enough shelter equals disease and death for most of them, if not all.

Officials figure that 7 critters will do well, procreate, and continue in life.

Enter the hunter. 10 minus 7 is 3, right? Hunters apply for one of three ‘tags’, for those 3 that are too many.

Our little lady was one of those hunters drawn for the tag, and she was successful in her hunt/harvest.

PETA would rather not have ANY management, which is ridiculous, and deadly for all animal life.

I side with the lady.

I’ve killed mere mountain lions, out of necessity, in that they were killing my cattle/goats/sheep.

I was using an AR-10 with a 25 round mag, not a bow, and I bet an African male lion has 100lbs on a mountain lion.

And I was pretty damn spooked.

When I was stalking them, they’d come around and hunt ME!

Never did take a photo, though. I wasn’t sure if I’d get in trouble (turns out its legal), so I just shot, shoveled, and shut up at the time.

Positive proof that there is no tolerance in a leftist. They will not, and can not stand for difference of opinion or lifestyle in any form. You WILL conform to their view or suffer persecution for it.
These are the poeple our Constitution was written for. To limit them and their government.

I agree.........You want to hunt your game, I approve of it but don't flaunt it, it's disrespectful of your kill.

At a sports bar where my softball team goes for lunch, there is one big screen TV which hosts a hunting channel. This channel shows nothing but packaged trophy hunts for deer and elk on carefully managed, privately owned property and strategically placed blinds throughout the property that is providing enormous amounts of food for the game.

So after you have watched an hour of the repeating hunting segments, you finally come to realize that 45 minutes of the program are dedicated to the advertisements of the hunting products being used in the video.......

Sorry but that that is not the hunting culture I was raised in..........

Because she is young and pretty and the left thinks they can shame her into repenting and using her as an examples to any other college-age person who might have ideas not approved.

Exactly. Why should we hide and act as though we are ashamed of what we do, when it is the left that does the most evil, then has the gall to call it good!

Hiding makes people who have not thought about it assume that you are ashamed of your actions.
