"The competition has been organised by Opre, from Montana, who has been hunting since she was 16.In that time she has killed more than 65 species across six continents and earned the world's most prestigious accolade for a female hunter - the Safari Club International Diana Award.The former Mrs America contestant has shot in eight countries across Africa and killed a hippo, a Cape Buffalo and darted a black rhino.But her "most memorable" hunt was shooting a male lion in Benin in West Africa.She said: "I hadn't planned on hunting lion but unexpectedly came across one and my professional hunter expressed urgency to react. I shouldered the rifle, shot and missed, encouraging the lion to run hastily into the forest."Then a herd of angry elephants came out of the forest and charged with intention to kill us. This caused the lion to divert, granting me only a running shot."I shouldered the rifle again and hit the lion by giving it a six-foot lead. It was a marvellous shot but the elephants were charging and we had to immediately react and so we shot in the air and shot at the ground to give them a warning and they stopped 20 yards away."We went in after the wounded lion and he came running out of the forest to kill me. I shot and reloaded, shot and reloaded and the lion expired at my feet."I was the first woman to kill a lion in that country and the celebrations were incredible."It was of significant importance to the villagers who's cattle had been the target of such a beast."It was the hunt that shaped who I am.


And there you have it. To anyone who is trying to put an 'intellectual' spin on this disgusting act, white washing Melissa Bachman's 'prowess'. This woman brags about shooting a lion in a region where the lion population is so low, it is now banned there. Correct me if I am wrong. Even the Elephants didn't appreciate the gunfire. They knew something was terribly wrong.
