The Idaho State University accountant has received heat from the animal community on facebook and is basking in the attention and determined to kill even more animals to actively court the hatred.
Her updates started at the beginning of her trip on July 24 when she proudly posted a picture of a kudu she had killed - a type of antelope.
She wrote: "Yesterday was day 1 an amazing day!!! Got my beautiful beautiful Kudu!! It was my #1 want on my list and I got him on the first day!!! Loving it there!!"
She is currently travelling with hunting company Old Days Safari. Although the Hwange Park in Zimbabwe where Cecil was killed has suspended the hunting of lions, leopards and elephants since Saturday, giraffe are still on the legal kill list.
