Just days after a US dentist's killing of Cecil the lion promoted international fury, an Idaho trophy hunting enthusiast has taken to Facebook to share photos of a recent hunting trip to South Africa.

In the run-up to her trip to a private conservancy 20 km from the Kruger National Park, The Telegraph reports Sabrina Corgatelli posted a meme of Leonardo DiCaprio on her wall with the message: “To all the haters. Stay tuned, you’re gonna have so much more to be p***** off about.”

"Got me a beautiful Blue Wildebeest today!! The guys at Old Days Safari got me another great trophy!!" she wrote. PHOTO: Facebook "Got me a beautiful Blue Wildebeest today!! The guys at Old Days Safari got me another great trophy!!" she wrote. PHOTO: Facebook

She wasn't joking. Soon after, the huntress has unleashed an outpouring of rage when she shared photos from her “trip of a lifetime”, during which she shot a giraffe, kudu, crocodile, wildebeest and impala.

“Yesterday, day 1 an amazing day!!!" she posted with a photo of a her posing next to a dead kudu. "Got my beautiful beautiful Kudu!! It was my #1 want on my list and I got him on the first day!!! Loving it there!!”

"My Impala I got today!!" she wrote, with two heart-eyed emoticons. "One of Africa's Icon. (sic.)" PHOTO: Facebook "My Impala I got today!!" she wrote, with two heart-eyed emoticons. "One of Africa's Icon. (sic.)" PHOTO: Facebook

Sabrina seems unaplogetic, but thousands of people have commented on the pictures and her wall expressing their disgust.

"Unbelievable that human garbage like you exists," one wrote. "You are a deranged young woman," said another. "Is this the legacy you'll leave? Shame on your cold, cruel heart."

On the photograph of her with the giraffe, one Facebooker posted, "Someone I know posted your pics. I am curious. Can you legally hunt these animals where you are?"

To which Sabrina responded, "There is parts of Africa you can't, but where I'm at it completely legal."

"Aaron's 13 foot Crocodile. What a great Trophy and fun hunt!!" she captioned this photo. PHOTO: Facebook "Aaron's 13 foot Crocodile. What a great Trophy and fun hunt!!" she captioned this photo. PHOTO: Facebook

She also posted a biblical reference from Genesis 9:3: “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. "

A spokesman for Old Days hunting confirmed to the Telegraph that Sabrina had stayed at the lodge for two weeks, but declined to comment further.
