Kendall Jones Defames Animal Protection Groups

The teenage cheer leading hunter who made controversy when she uploaded pictures of exotic animals she killed in Africa has resorted to slandering and defaming animal advocacy organizations.

On Monday, Jones made a post on her "Public Figure" Facebook page (which was created long before she became a public figure) slamming the Humane Society saying "The Humane Society of the United States set aside only 1% of its budget on grants to local pet shelters." However, the Humane Society of the United States is a separate entity and is not associated with any animal shelter or local humane society. Therefore, the HSUS is not responsible for handing out money to any shelter - however they generously do anyway.

In addition, Kendall goes on to then slam People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals saying "PETA has euthanized over 33,000 animals." However, not only was that over a period of 16 years; but PETA operates a "shelter of last resort" where sick, injured and suffering animals are humanely euthanized by a veterinarian. The organization performs the sad but very necessary task of relieving the suffering of animals.

Lastly, Kendall Jones frequently claims her actions are "conservation". However, conservation by definition is "the act of preserving, guarding, or protecting." Jones' photos showed her posing with bagged zebras, hugging a dead leopard, and smiling beside elephants she had killed. One particular photo, in which she posed alongside an extremely endangered rhinoceros, had her critics especially steaming, but the Texas Tech cheerleader says it was alive and well. Does this sound like "conservation" to you?
