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.'

“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.

“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.

After David Bonnouvrier, co-founder of KnotMyPlanet got hold of her pictures, he posted it online and the media went absolutely ballistic!

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.
