Outrageous 'Kill Your Dog?!': Famous Female Hunter Gets Hate-Filled Messages
A well known female hunter generated some extreme reaction from some people after she posted a picture of a just-killed bear on Facebook.
Canadian Eva Shockey is the daughter of famous outdoorsman Jim Shockey and the co-host of "Jim Shockey's Hunting Adventures" on Outdoor Channel.
She drew some fierce backlash, but also a ton of support, when she posted the following on Facebook last week.
One commenter even told her "to kill that little worthless dog you have instead."
She then called out the person with a photo of her dog.
Shockey discussed the intolerance for hunting this morning on "Fox and Friends," believing that many people lack understanding about why people hunt.
"Honestly, if anything, it makes me a little bit sad because the people that are saying these things, I think they're showing hatred because they are fearful. They don't understand why we hunt. They don't understand hunting and conservation and all the good things that we're doing," she said.
Eva said her dad's advice on dealing with haters is to "stay classy" and don't stoop to that level.
"I believe with every part of me that what I'm doing is right, so there's nothing that I'm apologizing for," said Shockey, adding that she's eager to educate people about the subject.
Shockey explained that in North Carolina, where the photo was taken, the bear population is rising rapidly.
"Obviously we're not gonna get rid of the humans. ... You have to keep the bear population in check," she said.
