Images of hunters celebrating their trophies often draw widespread support and widespread condemnation – something Tess Talley knows first hand. In 2017, she killed a giraffe in South Africa. In 2018, her photo of the kill went viral and prompted worldwide outrage.
Talley joined “CBS This Morning” Friday to say that she’s “absolutely” still going hunting.
“It’s a hobby, it’s something that I love to do,” she said. Talley said that the controversial kill was part of a conservation hunt, designed to manage the amount of wildlife in a given area.
“I am proud to hunt,” she said. “And I am proud of that giraffe.”
