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."

Meanwhile, a million chickens just had their necks broken for your dinner tonight in America. I do feel bad seeing the king of the jungle brought down like that though.

I don't have a problem with hunters as long as they are doing it for food not sport. If this girl is going out hunting exotic animals, that's pretty disturbing.

I don't care that she's hot, she's a piece of ****. For the sake of argument lets just say all of her killings are legal- there is no reason to glorify it with pictures and parade about it. Her TV show will fail because the support of killing animals as a sport will always have a minority audience.

Maybe we should do the same to her dad. He seems a bit slow these days.

BULLSH-T! Your daughter is pure evil and I hope she gets what she deserves.
To murder exquisitely beautiful animals, of which many are considered endangered is an indication this bitch is a sociopath without a heart. There is NO WAY she pocesses an spec of kindness, benevolence or humanity. SHE IS EVIL.
The worth of ONE of those animal's life is worth a thousand of s***bags like her.

It's wrong. Someone needs to buy the girl a camera so she can appreciate these animals in photos instead of stuffed, hanging dead on the wall.
