An American “professional huntress” has been sent death threats after posing with a dead goat she shot in Scotland.
Larysa Switlyk sparked outrage after posting pictures of herself with the wild goat on Islay.
She described the goat as “beautiful” and said it had been “such a fun hunt!”.
The TV presenter went on to write: “Made a perfect 200 yard shot and dropped in with the @gunwerks and @nightforce_optics! Good thing too because he could have ran off the cliff into the water).”
More than 12,000 people commented on the image and in response, the Scottish government has promised to review animal culling laws.
The TV presenter now says she is taking a break from social media and is “headed out on a bush plane for my next hunting adventure”.
Posting a new picture – this time of herself next to a small plane – she wrote: “My ride has arrived – I’m headed out on a bush plane for my next hunting adventure and will be out of service for 2 weeks.
“Nothing better than disconnecting from this social media-driven world and connecting back with nature.
“Hopefully that will give enough time for all the ignorant people out there sending me death threats to get educated on hunting and conservation. FYI, I was in Scotland over a month ago…”
Ms Switlyk had also posted photos of hunting companions with stags and sheep during the trip.
