WARNING: This story is gruesome and the pictures are even worse.
This is a haunting story, but it is a story that needs to be told!
Most college kids spend their free time in a variety of clubs or partying away their youth, but not Kendall Jones!
When the 19-year-old isn't cheerleading at Texas Tech University, she is hunting endangered animals in Africa.
Some of her most recent kills include nearly extinct rhinos, lions, cheetahs, and elephants.
Even more disturbing, Kendall is SO proud of her helpless trophies that she smiles wide for photos and then uploads them to her Facebook page with over 21,000 "likes."
In her description, Kendall writes:
"In 2008, (age 13) I took my second trip to Africa to start my Big 5 experience, but this time to South Africa. Although I had many other opportunities to shoot animals I wanted to save it for the Big 5, so the first animal I ever shot was a White Rhino with a .416 Remington!! On this trip I also took some plains game, such as impala, kudu and mountain reedbuck home. "
By the way, fewer White Rhinos exist than Kendall's Facebook "likes."
Thankfully, a large part of those followers are haters. Over 40,000 people have already signed a petition, demanding her page be removed. You can sign it HERE.
Sadly, it's going to take a lot more to get her to stop than simply removing her from Facebook.
Believe it or not, she tried to justify her kills with claims that the bodies will help conservation efforts.
…the last time we checked there are PLENTY of other ways to research WITHOUT harming precious animals.
We hope someone stops this woman, and anyone else like her, before she harms any more innocent creatures.
