Kitty Block, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, responded to CBS with a statement that said trophy-hunting of giraffes showed "sheer and arrogant disregard for the imperiled status of an iconic species". She told CBS on Friday that the hunt was specifically for conservation efforts. "It's joy, if you don't enjoy it you're not going to continue to do it". Image via social media.
Talley said the giraffe's death was part of a conservation hunt meant to control the amount of wildlife in the area.
Talley said she's undeterred, will go on more trophy hunting trips - and bring her camera with her.
Talley defended the snaps, saying: 'The pictures are a tradition that hunters have done long before social media. I hope that someday a den of lions enjoy how tasty you are after you are mauled and eaten by them. But you gain so much respect, and so much appreciation for that animal because you know what that animal is going through.
"The money from conservation hunting, as you describe it, is a paltry sum compared to wildlife tourism", Dokoupil pointed out. I do my part.

The Giraffe Conservation Foundation estimates there are 111,000 giraffes remaining in throughout Africa.
Babaz claimed Talley ate some of the giraffe's meat but handed out most of it to more than 200 local villagers, among which were children at an orphanage.
Trophy hunting is a legal practice in a number of African countries, including South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It actually helps support the home-grown community.
Several celebrities also hit out at Talley, including Will and Grace actress Debra Messing, who called the hunter a "disgusting, vile, amoral, heartless, selfish murderer".
Her appearance on CBS comes nearly a year after the images of her posing with the giraffe (predictably) caused outrage online. "Now that the giraffe is gone, the younger bulls are able to breed". Talley joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why she has no regrets about the photo.
The overall giraffe population, however, is in decline by as much as 40 percent.
Asked if she was still hunting despite the negative outpouring towards her, she said: "Absolutely!"
