Olivia Opre has travelled the world to kill more than 100 animals, but insists her actions are helping wildlife conservation efforts pic.twitter.com/XFMeEXhnXS— This Morning (@thismorning) September 19, 2018
She said: ‘I think what it is, it's bringing me to a place where I get to be a part of these wild places. And amongst the people of these areas, it’s the adventure, it’s the pursuit.
‘It’s something that pushes you to a limit you are not comfortable with and it takes you out of your comfort zone and for me hunting is just being in the wild.'
Olivia Opre you are a vile, evil excuse of a human being !!!!! 😡#ThisMorning— Lee Summerfield (@Lee010) September 19, 2018
“What a f***ing idiot!” one person wrote of killing an animal that is of an endangered species. Another said, “they deserve the same fate as those animals.”
Opre stated in her defense after receiving death threats, she states that hunters have legal rites to hunt and that they are contributing to the conservation.
#ThisMorning shouldn't be giving this vile woman air time. Anyone that kills defenceless, endangered animals should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.— Saz (@SarahB18873) September 19, 2018
“Yes, the lion and the lioness I did shoot,” she said of the most prominent animals on display, before explaining that she’s hunted about 100 species throughout six continents. “It’s bringing me to a place where I get to be a part of these wild places and amongst the people of these areas and it’s the adventure.
Hey @Schofe and @hollywills - I’m in Liberia right now ... with a film crew. It’s an amazing place. They don not need arrogant white hunters here. This woman’s an idiot! As a conservationist and broadcaster, I can happily say that what she’s saying is not only wrong but stupid!— Prof Ben Garrod (@Ben_garrod) September 19, 2018
As a mother of four, you'd think that her morels and responsibilities would be set to certain standards that abide by the law of "live and let live". Senseless killing does not come into play with that law.
Olivia explained to the horrified presenters that she traveled the world in search of these endangered species she was eager to kill.
This has to be the worst and best interview I’ve ever seen!This vile, ugly human being hunts and kills for pleasure! She is arrogant yet completely ill-informed on animal welfare, statistics of endangered species😡 And poor Holly and Simon kept calm, utterly professional & sane!— jacqui 🐝 Bradley (@jacquiBSting) September 19, 2018
Perhaps we can try to understand what goes through the minds of these game hunters and why on earth they feel the need to kill innocent animals. Here is a deeper look inside the mind of the trophy hunter and the logic they feel drives them into hunting.
