A woman from Idaho named Sabrina Corgatelli who has been dubbed “The Idaho Huntress” posted pictures to her social media accounts this weekend boasting of her hunting trip to South Africa where she shot a giraffe and several other animals including a impala, a kudu, a warthog and a wildebeest. In her initial Facebook post she said;
”Day #2 I got a amazing old Giraffe. Such a amazing animal!! I couldn’t be any happier!! My emotion after getting him was a feeling I will never forget!!!”
This old giraffe must have been a really tough challenge to hunt. Also tough to hunt: the neighboring war lords who kidnap children to become soldiers. But congrats on the giraffe, lady!
As you can imagine the reaction across the Internet was brutal. Not like stalking and slaughtering a bunch of majestic animals brutal, but still pretty brutal.

Unlike Dr. Palmer, the lion killing dentist who later apologized for killing the beloved “Cecil” in Zimbabwe- in the face of overwhelming Internet outrage, Corgatelli is not backing down. After receiving lots of criticism on her Facebook page, Corgatelli, who works as an accountant at a university said in a post that was later taken down:
“All you haters, This is for you!! Have a great day, cuz I know I will!”
This was accompanied by a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio from The Great Gatsby with the additional caption: “To all the haters – stay tuned, you’re gonna have so much more to be pissed about.’
I’m guessing this guy was one of her number one “haters.”
This lady is now reportedly on a new hunting expedition where she and a team of hunting experts will spend several days and nights skillfully tracking down and hunting for all of the fucks that she doesn’t give.
It is estimate that the hunting expedition cost upwards of $10,000. Like any good troll the more people reacted to her the more she fed off the hate.
While local game and wildlife officials might have a thing or two to say about what Corgatelli can and cannot hunt, it seems that she has appealed to a higher authority for her license to hunt and kill:
You’re telling me this woman got a lot of comments on her Facebook posts? Really? Huh, weird, OK.
Her hunt continues in Kruger National Park in South Africa where it is all reportedly legal and no famous lions or giraffes have been killed. Which brings us to our:
