accused of luring a lion out of a Zimbabwe national park
before killing the beloved animal, Monday's Today Show
featured a rather stunning story of an Idaho woman, an Idaho State University accountant who calls herself "the Italian Huntress" and who has proudly gunned down numerous animals in the wild.
Sabrina Corgatelli went on her most recent hunting trip just a week ago to South Africa's Kruger National Park. And on social media, Corgatelli claimed to have killed
a giraffe, impala, kudu, warthog and a wildebeest and loves to pose alongside her slain targets.
"I got an amazing old Giraffe," Corgatelli wrote on Facebook.
"Such an amazing animal!! I couldn't be any happier!! My emotion after getting him was a feeling I will never forget!!!"
On July 31, Corgatelli referred to the Old Testament Book of Genesis, when she wrote on Facebook,
"Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you," and "Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me."
And as expected, Corgatelli is herself now in the cross-hairs of a fair amount of hate-mail: "I hope you shoot your ovaries off in a misfire so you can never reproduce," wrote one commenter on Corgatelli's Facebook page.
This morning, Corgatelli appeared on NBC's Today Show
, along with her companion Aaron Neilson to defend her hunting.
