    She apparently took down this lion on a game farm in Africa. Before you rip her this was a legal hunt by Maroi Conservancy. Apparently what I can gather is many lions starve due to the lack of food in certain areas of the continent. They are controlling the population of certain species by offering hunting on their private reserve. There is a petition signed by 250,000 people to keep her out of Africa again. I think most people are pissed because she has a big smile on her face. She is known as "Hardcore Huntress".

    Big game hunting in Africa has long been criticized by animal rights activists, but proponents say the money hunters spend during their trips boosts the local economy, and supports conservation projects.

    According to Grind TV, Bachman killed the lion during a guided hunt facilitated by the Maroi Conservancy. And according to Maroi, the hunt was perfectly legal.

    “We do ethical hunting and all meat from animals hunted is distributed to the local community," a post on Maroi's Facebook page reads. "Funds generated from hunting goes towards fixing the border fence that was washed away in the 2013 floods, combating poaching, which is excessive in this area due to close proximity to Zimbabwe, and running a sustainable conservancy."

    "We are not apologizing for facilitating the [Bachman] hunt," the conservancy added. "If you are not a game farmer and struggling with dying starving animals, poaching, and no fences in place to protect your animals and crop, please refrain from making negative derogatory comments."

    That lion clearly looks malnourished. She's a hero for more than her fake boobs.
