Claiming that hunting somehow helps animal populations is as ridiculous as saying that killing people is a solution to world hunger. Ms. Jones’ social-media accounts show that her only interest is in slaughtering wildlife for a cheap thrill and in a desperate quest to secure a macabre reality show. This young woman has won something else: people’s disgust at her heartless self-congratulation in ending animals’ lives for fun. Hunting licenses have plummeted by a third over the past two decades—with most people preferring to hike, kayak, snowboard, and live and let live, enjoying the outdoors without wiping out those who live in it—so it’s no surprise when the public reacts with outrage to a small person who kills animals for fun.
