    People protest against poaching after the death of Cecil the lion, in the parking lot of Dr. Walter Palmer's River Bluff Dental Clinic on July 29, 2015 in Bloomington, Minnesota.

    As outrage pours in over the death of Cecil the lion, an Idaho hunter has been posting pictures on her Facebook page of various kills she made recently during a legal hunt in South Africa. 

    Sabrina Corgatelli, a senior accountant for Idaho State University, has attracted hundreds of negative comments over a photo that shows her with a dead giraffe.

    "To me it's not just killing an animal; it's the hunt,'' she told "Today" on Monday. "Everybody just thinks we're cold-hearted killers, and it's not that. There is a connection with the animal, and just because we hunt them doesn't mean we don't have a respect for them. Giraffes are very dangerous animals. They could hurt you seriously very quickly."
