Almost a year after photos emerged of her posing proudly with the dead black giraffe, Tess Thompson Talley revealed that she later ate the animal.

In 2018, Tess Thompson Talley made headlines after images of her with a black giraffe that she hunted in South Africa went viral. In the photographs, the beautiful animal is slumped around her, as she stands there, for some reason pleased with herself for killing a non-aggressive animal.

A year later and for some reason being interviewed, Talley declared that “he was delicious” while – genuinely like a super villain – laughing. She laughed as she spoke about eating a giraffe.

Speaking to CBS, she said:

They [animals] are put there for us, we harvest them, we eat them!

That’s a very self-centred way of looking at the ecosystem.

She then went on to show off her gun case, made from the hide of the animal, saying:

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.

After that, Talley then joined presenters in the CBS This Morning studio, where she was further probed.

We are preserving… we are managing herds, we’re managing numbers of wildlife.” she explained.

“I am proud to be a hunter, and I’m proud to hunt, and I am proud of [killing] that giraffe.

I’m sure it put up one hell of a fight, Tess.

Speaking of the backlash she right received, Talley said:

It got really bad, [people] spreading out addresses, showing up my work, calling employer trying to get me fired…

Ah that’s so sad. Poor, Tess, eh?

Such a shame to see an innocent person like her have people try to get her fired after she killed a very rare, defenceless, beautiful animal.

Think on your sins, people.

Nah I hate her.
