Kendall Jones

Dad Says She's Actually

A Humanitarian

Exclusive Details

0703_kendall_jones_hunting_photos_launchKendall Jones -- the teenage hunter whose animal kills have so enraged people -- is not the cold-blooded killer she's been made out to be ... so says her father. 

Cody Jones tells TMZ ... some of his daughter's killings were humane.  The pic of the dead lion, for example, was a mercy killing, he says, because the animal was old and unable to keep up with its pack. Kendall's dad says the lion's fate was sealed ... a younger lion would surely have killed it.

And he says his daughter has taken heat over the pic of her posing with a rhino.  He says the rhino is NOT dead -- it was injured by a lion and later tranquilized and taken to a vet.


As for the animals Kendall did kill ... her dad says the leopards, elephants and lions are not on the endangered species list.

PETA isn't buying the explanation Kendall's dad is selling, telling us, "Her only interest is slaughtering wildlife for a cheap thrill," adding she's showboating "in a desperate quest to secure a macabre reality show."

That little bitch and her family deserve to be given the same treatment they gave the animals the murdered for sport.

Hunters are the greatest conservationists and they understand and love animals. If it wasn't for them, our animals would be in serious trouble. There is no Global Warming. It is all part of the earth's cycle that goes back thousands of years.

Is this really a fu***in story, peta is a group of idiots. None of those animals are endangered, and hunting "mercy" killings happen alot. I know this first hand as I have hunted lion in Africa, its called population control. Its all done legally, and its expensive AF... Stop crying please, hunting is necessary, are all of you vegan? Doubt it.....

Wow people are really saying a child should die because she was taught something and took a liking to it. This is the reason so much bullying is taking place in schools. Kids learning from adults.
