TV host Piers Morgan tried to start a cat fight of sorts with 12-year-old Utah hunter Aryanna Gourdin and her father, Eli, on live TV.
Morgan asked her how she would feel if he killed her pet cat and “celebrated” the slaughter Monday.
She and Eli responded by saying Morgan was asking trick questions and that they didn’t kill anyone’s pets.
Gourdin and her father started getting death threats after posting photos of her posing with animals she killed hunting in South Africa.
The threats and vulgar language overtook the comments on Aryanna’s hunting page, Braids and Bows.
Her father says the problem is the lack of understanding for what hunting does for conservation.
“The conservation efforts and what it means for the survival of the species. The giraffe she hunted was nowhere near extinction,” Gourdin said.
