Huntress’ Giraffe Kill Sparks Another Round Of Public Outrage

Another beautiful huntress has unwittingly found herself in the middle of a heated debate after posting Facebook photos of her African hunting trip.

Sabrina Corgatelli hunted giraffe, warthog, kudu, and impala, but it was the giraffe that most commenters focused on. She proudly posted photos of her achievements, but the backlash was as swift as it was fierce.

Corgatelli has already received thousands of negative comments in response to her photos, each with hundreds if not thousands of likes.

“Wow, you killed a giraffe, an animal that wouldn’t hurt a fly.. No words for how disgusting you are,” wrote Terry Hoeye, receiving over 11,000 likes for malicious comment.

“Unbelievable that human garbage like you exists,” wrote Melinda Shannon Freels, garnering a whopping 8,000 likes.

“Why not kill your family poodle,” asked Scott Weaver, with almost 2,000 likes. “You could strangle it with your bare hands. Or maybe you have a 4 year old daughter you could beat with a bat. IT would probably give you the same sick thrill you got here killing this “old giraffe”. oh I get it, you would rather shoot a white haired grandma. You are one sick woman.”

Many other posters hurled vile insults and personal attacks against Coratelli, some even threatening to hunt her in retribution for her actions.

But amdist the hate, Corgatelli has also received a few positive comments, including one from poster Gage Arness.

“Thank you Sabrina for helping support the wildlife conservation over there,” wrote Arness, with only 36 likes. “I know it’s very expensive to go on a hunt such as this. You have done a great thing and have had a great opportunity for yourself. Most of these people don’t understand how it all works and don’t want to. Keep up the good hunts! Pay no attention to the evil and spiteful people that will attack you.”

Corgatelli responded to the massive influx of spiteful comments with a pair of Bible verses.

“Genesis 9:3 says, “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I ave you the green plants, I give you everything.”

“Genesis 27:3 says, “Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.”

Hunting has been the focus of public scrutiny in recent weeks after an American dentist hunted a 13-year-old male lion in Zimbabwe, and it seems Corgatelli most recent photos couldn’t have come at a worse time.

It’s unfortunate that legal hunts attract so much negativity, especially since in most instances they greatly benefit wildlife reserves.

Hopefully Cogatelli is able to shrug off the threats and condescending remarks and push forward to her next hunt.

    Giraffes are endangered, magnificent animals that should not be hunted or killed for sport. They are not common like deer.

    Of course, she only killed it to feed and clothe her family. They can all proudly wear their spotted coats, dresses, etc. And giraffe meat will give them the fat and protein which will help them through the winter. And what tremendous courage it must have taken to shoot a ferocious animal that huge. Way to go, lady. Be proud!

    You want to stop the killing partition the African Countries to stop issuing permits.
    Ah but then that will cut the revenue stream.
    People have hunted since we took our first steps and before. Get a life.

    How many of PETA and other groups still eat meat, fish, poultry, etc. You don’t have a right to complain unless you’re a vegan.

    I think it’s awesome a female can go to A friend hunt,really I’m jealous… I’d love to.If people didn’t go to the places where big game live,usually a third world country.. and pay thousands of $’. To hunt then there wouldn’t be all the wildlife, because they can’t afford conservation by themselves

    Don’t expect any “outrage” from me just because Ms. Corgatelli can afford to travel to Africa and hire guides and a PH, purchase the required licenses, and go out to where these magnificent beasts live and harvest a few. Good for her! Those who vent their outrage against Ms. Corgatelli should stop, take a few deep cleansing breaths, think (yes, THINK!), and put themselves in her shoes. If you are one who is revolted by her choice of recreation then by all means don’t do what she and others like her do! Turn your head, look away and find something else to distract yourself. It’s just that simple. And if you wish to “vent your spleen” with vile, malicious, libelous and degrading comments towards her and others who hunt like her be prepared to reap what you have sown. If you know something is true and have the resources and valid references to prove it, opine away. If you could be justified in saying whatever your spleen tells you directly to that individual and his/her close family members as well as your own children, then fire away. If all you wish to do is spout ill-informed, misinformed, or non-informed blather in a hateful manner you’d better watch your own six o’clock like a hawk because someone you’ve flamed will be coming after you (hopefully with attorneys and writs in tow). As Benjamin Franklin so wisely stated regarding matters of force and opinion, “Your right to swing your arm ends at the tip of my nose.”

      Don’t pay any attention to the ignorant people, who hire their meat killed by someone else. You go ahead and feed that nearby village and enjoy their feast with them while helping with that Country’s wildlife management, set up by non-ignorant people that know what they are doing. If I could, I would be in Africa helping also. Good on You and great hunt.
