US 'professional huntress' who shot dead a sheep quits social media


A'professional huntress' who sparked outrage after posting pictures of herself posing with a wild goat shot on Islay is leaving social media for two weeks after receiving death threats. American TV presenter Larysa Switlyk said she was'headed out on a bush plane for my next hunting adventure' and would be out of service for a fortnight. Ms Switlyk, who hosts the Larysa Unleashed programme on various channels, has been widely criticised after posting a picture of herself smiling behind the wild goat, with more than 12,000 people commenting on the image. Ms Switlyk was previously an accountant in New York before going hunting full time. The Scottish Government has said it will review the law around animal culling in the wake of the response to the images.
