A Spanish female hunter has sadly taken her life after she was bullied relentlessly by animal activists. They were less fazed with her death than they were of the animals.
Melania Capitan was being bombarded with threats on social media due to her love of hunting. On Wednesday, the 27-year-old was found dead in her apartment from what appears to be a suicide.
Capitan, from Catalonia, Spain, had amassed a huge fan base on social media posting images of herself hunting. Her Facebook page, where she shared hunting tips, had nearly 39,000 followers.
Some posts, however, were controversial for animal rights activists who would leave harassing messages, The Daily Mail reported. It is not known if her death was related to the cyberbullying.
The Daily Mail reported that the blond huntress left a suicide note for friends, but the contents of the letter have not been released.
Even after she was dead, critics continued to comment on her posts and send nasty messages, condemning her for hunting.
One said, “She’s finished the lives of many animals and no one defended the death of them… I think our [lives are] worth the same as theirs.”
However, there are many people who mourn her unnecessary death. Some have stated that is is such a shame that this happened.
Then there were people in the middle who did not like that she was a hunter but were also sad to see her die. One said, “I do not like hunting, defending animals and killing for [hobby] seems horrible to me. But it’s a shame that this girl took her life.”
It is a sad day when the lives of animals that are hunted for food are valued over those of a human being. Yes, animals’ lives have value but not as much as a person. She was senselessly bullied.
The modern PETA and animal activists are a joke….much like modern feminism. Both of them took a good idea and then ran it into the ground.
