Texas Tech cheerleader ignites social media firestorm

                                                                       They are the shots seen 'round the world: Carcasses of a menagerie of exotic animals brought down by the bullets and arrows of a beaming 19-year-old Kendall Jones of Cleburne.

The prolific young big game hunter has become the hunted on social media. After Jones posted pictures of her takedowns on her Kendall Takes Wild Facebook page in recent days, some respondents have violently threatened to take aim at her.

Others have chosen a more peaceful response — starting a petition urging Facebook to remove Jones’ page.

Facebook has taken down some of those photos, so Jones created a Support Kendall page to defend her sport.

But she has her share of supporters, too. Jones' following on Facebook has skyrocketed this week.

Jones didn’t respond to our requests for an interview, but on her page she defends the controversial kills in Africa as being a positive for conservation, preventing inbreeding and generating money for game reserves.   http://www.wfaa.com/news/entertainment/pets/Texas-Tech-cheerleader-ignites-social-media-firestorm-265480021.htmlhttp://www.wfaa.com/news/entertainment/pets/Texas-Tech-cheerleader-ignites-social-media-firestorm-265480021.htmlhttp://www.wfaa.com/news/entertainment/pets/Texas-Tech-cheerleader-ignites-social-media-firestorm-265480021.html
