American Hunter Says She Has No Regrets about Killing a Black Giraffe

The American woman who received death threats after she killed a giraffe in South Africa says she has no regrets almost a year after photos of her proudly posing with the dead animal went viral. 

Tess Thompson Talley, 38, defended her love of hunting in a CBS interview airing on Friday, saying:
“They [animals] are put there for us, we harvest them and we eat them!”

In a pre-packaged segment, Talley was seen at her home in Odessa, Texas, where she was dressed in camouflage gear and filmed killing a wildebeest on a wildlife ranch. When asked about the black giraffe she had killed during her gaming trip to South Africa, she laughed:
“He was delicious!”

Talley, who works in a ball-bearing factory, then showed off the gun case she had made from the skin of the dead animal.

“This is a part of the black giraffe that I shot, something I could take around with me, and have on my hunts!' she stated, as she slung the case around. I also have decorative pillows made out of him, and everybody loves them,” she excitedly declared.
