From American Live Wire:

TV presenter Melissa Bachman raised ire when she posted a photo of a mature male lion she allegedly shot and killed on Twitter and Facebook. Within hours of the post, an online petition by Cape Town resident Elan Burman asking the South African government to ban Bachman from ever returning to the country was launched.

According to a report on, Melissa Bachman, a keen hunter who makes programmes on the American outdoors, posted a photograph on Facebook and Twitter of her holding a rifle and smiling beside the corpse of a male lion.

A furious online reaction led Bachman to deactivate her Facebook and Twitter pages within hours. It also prompted an online petition asking the South African government to bar her from returning.
American television presenter prompts outrage with online boast about killing lion

The picture depicts Bachman crouching over the carcass of a male lion with its eyes closed, paws either side of its head, as she holds her gun and smiles toothily.

‘An incredible say hunting in South Africa!’ she tweeted. ‘Stalked inside 60 yards on the this beautiful male lion… what a hunt!’

The post provoked a furious response from many Twitter users, who called her ‘disgusting’ and ‘vile.’ At the time of writing, Burman’s petition had 5,435 signatures.

‘She is an absolute contradiction to the culture of conservation this country prides itself on.’

Signatory Richard Robinson wrote:

‘You didn’t kill a lion, you stood behind a machine and pulled a little trigger, you pathetic, sad excuse of a human.’

The African lion is considered a vulnerable species. Numbers are rapidly declining due to loss of habitat and conflict with humans. However, hunting lions is legal in several countries, including South Africa where Bachman bagged her big male.

Bachman’s social media pages and website reveal an array of huge beasts that have died after coming in contact with her.

The ‘Trophy Room’ section of her website features a grinning Bachman with dead deer, antelope, alligators, turkeys and hogs. This latest furor is not the first time Bachman has run afoul of anti-hunting groups.

Last year, she was slated to appear on the National Geographic Channel’s Ultimate Survivor Alaska but was dropped after a petition that called Bachman a ‘contracted trophy killer’ was signed more than 13,000 times in less than 24 hours.

Ricky Gervais, the British comedian, shared Ms Bachman’s comment “what a hunt!” on his own Twitter feed, adding: “Spot the typo”.

Ms Bachman could not be contacted for comment on Friday.

You’ll leave each show feeling entertained and informed, plus blown away by some of the most incredible footage on television today.

Deadly Passion is 13-weeks of non-stop action and pure entertainment as Melissa travels the country going face to face with everything from world class red stag, thousand pound gators, to Boone and Crocket whitetails. This is one girl with a Deadly Passion.

Episode 4: Mule Deer Madness
Melissa heads out west to both Colorado and Montana in search of monster muleys on some incredible spot and stalk hunts. After some hard hunting, Melissa goes home with a once in a lifetime mule deer that is sporting a unicorn point right out of the middle of his forehead!

Episode 5: Predator Calling Giant Black Bears
Melissa Bachman loves hunting black bear in Alaska, but her favorite method of hunting them is on the ground, calling them in, and shooting them close!

Episode 6: Colorado Velvet Skyscraper
Persistence is the name of the game on this early season Colorado mule deer hunt as Melissa Bachman puts in 11-days hunting this one specific high-racked mule deer.

New Mexico is well known for their giant elk, but Melissa Bachman is ready to go the extra mile to take down a big bull on the Gila with her muzzleloader.

Episode 8: Late Season Illinois Booner
When it comes to hunting Illinois, this is Melissa’s favorite destination of all for big whitetails and it’s easy to see why. During this late season muzzleloader hunt Melissa passes several good bucks and is rewarded with a giant, making all the passes worth it!

Episode 13: Bringing Home the Bacon: Texas Style
Hogs have become an incredible nuisance for many Texas residents, but for Melissa Bachman they are an absolute blast to hunt and make for great food on the grill!

One of my many ambitions remains unchanged, I'd said in a previous post, that I'd just love to have her and her family abducted, taken way out into wilderness, with no weapons, give them 3 minute head start, make them run for their lives barefoot, then hunt them, shoot them on sight but only to wound to begin, then capture them, tie their hands behind them, chain their feet together, and then release them again, but this time release them into the domain of Lions, farewell and adieu to you ya lowlife skank and scum family

Done. I can only echo the sentiments of others. I, too, would love to smack the smug look off of this heartless bitch's face. Cowards kill and she is one. My wish: Put her in the jungle ( without her trusty weapons) and viideotape her as she runs for her life from the wildlife pursuing her. I doubt if she'd be smiling then. One big difference. Wildlife kill to survive-not for sport, so they'd probably take one bite and spit her out, after getting a taste of her ugly soul.

This sheds light on African policies regarding wildlife conservation. As well, National Geographic aired a special on Africa's new 'Super Lions'. These are lions that, due to rapid development and an increase in human population, have had to adapt to their environment and learn to swim and hunt in the water for their food. They went over the dwindling lion population.
WHY air a show like that on one hand, and then on the other support someone like Bachmann?
So horendous. It is sickening. It makes me feel like there is no hope for us. We need a public forum or media outlet for these issues. We need to put Palin and her ilk in the hot seat!

I don't understand people's motivation to hunt and kill for "sport". If you need to prove that you are a sharp-shooter or marksman, there are non-lethal sports that you can engage in, e.g. "Practical target shooting" competitions. Serial murder isn't a sport it's a pathological behaviour exhibiting no empathy for other sentient beings, which also neatly describes sociopaths. I support the idea of including this behaviour in the DSM schedule as a mental illness which should be treated as a matter of urgency.

I also agree with Yvette.

I wonder if the pursuit channel will make a new series - "the great human game challenge" - lions get to eat hunting humans on the hit-list - biggest game target: Melissa Bachman!

Watch them run, watch them scream, watch how stealthily the lion seeks out his targets. The lion who eats Melissa Bachman will have his picture taken ... preferably smiling!

i LOVE ALL ANIMALS, ESPECIALLY LIONS. When I seen this, my heart dropped. The lion that she killed was such a beautiful, king of the jungle who lived his whole live battling other lions and beasts and this sick, crackpot comes along with her BIG GUN and takes his life. What a COWARD. tAKE HER GUN AWAY AND MESS WITH THAT LION. HE WOULD RIPE HER TO SHREADS. yOU BETTER WATCH YOUR BACK BECAUSE SOMEDAY YOUR Time WILL COME AND I HOPE YOU SUFFER LIKE ALL THESE POOR ANIMALS that you murdered did.

One question. Was the hunt illegal? Because if it was a legal hunt then there is a much bigger problem than this one hunter killing a lion, which this petition will not fix. Banning this one woman seems a totally silly reaction if the practice is still allowed to contnue. Who profits? Does it benefit other wildlife to allow the hunting of some lions or other trophy wildlife?

The govt. of South Africa probably makes money from this form of 'tourism' and so allows it to remain legal. (Don't there always seem to be 'monetary reasons' for the bad things in this world) We need to work on having the countries that contain these endangered wildlife species to at least make it illegal to hunt them, for a start. Unfortunately, many of the poorer countries depend on this tourism as an important part of their economies, and there often reluctant to make that choice.

I live in South Africa and I must say the last thing we need in our beautiful country and young democracy, are bloodthirsty callous foreign tourists to bring their sickness here. I say "stay at home and keep your dirty money".
I hope that this cowardly predator for pleasure - gets the message that MOST thinking, caring people don'd like what she does. Perhaps we should take away her guns and hangers-on, and let some lions hunt her. How mucho will she be then?

I saw this on the news and I went BESERK.. I was screaming at the TV, crying and just felt so SICK and HELPLESS and ENRAGED.. I was pacing like I was in a cage... I started an email to her on FB but somehow the page was switched. Gods way of keeping me out of jail perhaps?
..I searched for a petition and went OFF telling her shes pathetic piece of shit and a coward because she wouldnt have stood a chance with out her gun..

Looking at the beautiful creature seriously hurts my heart.. Makes me feel like Im being suffocated. Seeing her face makes me want to kick her mother F***ing ass. Hypocrite..conservation my ASS.
Shelli and Terry up top said it nicely and so many other great posts..

My exs friend had a bear in a cage. Messy Marvin would pace all day long, or when it was cold he would go into his den (I didnt know then what I do NOW or something would have been done!)...I was told later that they let him go and as he ran towards the woods, thinking he was FREE, the son of a bitch who held him captive, shot him in the back. Thats what happens when you have more money than you need,

Oh and someone above asked if it was an illegal was legal..on one of those private properties where they breed the animals to DIE...THEY need to be shut down NOW.

Scott haakon time for you to educate yourself on animal issues before you come to this section.
Lions are an endangered species while that hag bimbo is a dime a dozen.

Only 32,000 lions roam the African continent today, a drop from 200,000 a century ago.

I believe 'culling' is a cheap excuse. I think the American culture, which includes sport hunting needs a makeover.

I am tired of the 'good ol' boys' attitude and how it affects our life. I am sickened by Palin, Bush... our foreign policy. I am disgusted that among our biggest exports, military, movie industry, hunters andr number one in pedophiles who travel to Thailand to have $ ex with Children.. (beating England & Australia).

I am just tired to be an American altogether, and I am sick of it! I have spent countless nights worried about the plight of lions, watching documentaries.. donating money to relief, just to see this stupid crap.

I am tired of being ashamed of being an American.
