HOUSTON, TEXAS (KPRC) - Facebook fans said they will pull their fan support from a Texas Tech cheerleader after she posted dozens of photos of the animals she killed in Africa.

Kendall Jones, 19, said she has been hunting since she was a child. Her father took her to Africa on her first Safari-style hunt at age six.

She says she always gives the meat to local villagers, but does not want to give up her hobby. In fact, she is pursuing a reality television series about her passion.

She said all of her kills are the result of a fair chase.

Facebook fans said the photos, which include dead elephants, lions, hippos, zebras and other African safari animals are nothing more than indiscriminate killing of animals that should be protected.
