Her photos have attracted hundreds of comments, with people branding her “a disgrace to humanity”, “deranged” and swearing at her in their anger.

Corgatelli, who has been traveling around South Africa with her team, has updated her Facebook page with photos showcasing the variety of large animals that she has conquered thus far on her trip: an impala, blue wildebeest, kudu, warthog and giraffe.

On the image of the Giraffe, where the animal appears to have been shot in the neck, Sabrina wrote: “Day #2 I got a awesome old Giraffe”.

But the hunting enthusiast posted on Friday: “All you haters, this is for you!!”

She also likes hunting – a lot – and has essentially been trolling the internet by posting a series of pictures with her “kills”. “Yesterday, day 1 an awesome day!!!”

Her first showed her crouching over the prone form of a massive kudu, a kind of African antelope with a white-striped body and spiralling horns.

A female hunter who has killed dozens of wild animals for sport has hit back at her critics, telling them to expect “much more” where that came from. Giraffes are very risky animals.

Some of the commenters posted information about her job, leading to the question of whether she will face repercussions at work. “They could hurt you seriously very quickly”.

Minnesota dentist Walter J. Palmer has shuttered his practice and gone into hiding since it was revealed that he killed Cecil, one of the oldest and most famous lions in Zimbabwe, without a permit. Asked by Daly if she thinks her job could be in jeopardy, she replied with a question of her own – “How can an employer chastise you for something you do on your personal time that’s legally done?” It was the most ethical shot I have ever made!!!

Hunting Giraffe is legal in South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe, where populations have been increasing in recent years.

Wildlife officials have also accused a second American, Pennsylvania doctor and bow hunter Jan Seski, of killing a lion in April without a quota and permit.
