The woman not only killed the giraffe, but then posed with the animal’s heart – a gift from her husband for Valentine’s Day.
Merelizé Nell’s husband spent almost 2,000 euros so that she could go giraffe hunting in a park in South Africa as a Valentine’s Day gift. What animal lovers describe as extremely cruel, they describe as the fulfillment of a long-cherished wish. Her husband is wonderful, she is said to have said according to the British newspaper “Mirror”.
After she killed the giraffe, she first posed with the dead animal and then cut out its heartto hold it up in the air as a trophy.
The picture of the dead animal is now her Facebook cover picture.
Do not regret action
According to the newspaper, Nell, whose Facebook access has since been blocked, is defending her actions. She argues that she saved other endangered animals in South Africa by killing the elderly bull giraffe.
The 32-year-old started hunting at the age of five and has killed up to 500 animals – including lions, leopards and elephants.
