Mother Of Three Threatened For Living Off The Land
A mother of three in New Zealand is being threatened for living off the land, by hunting animals to feed her family. Critics are upset because she poses with the animal she hunts and she looks good doing so.
“A mother of three from New Zealand claims she has faced death threats for sharing pictures of her hunting trips, which often show her carrying an animal’s carcass following a hunt. However, the woman, 29, says she and her family eat the animals they hunt because they’re opposed to eating meat from a factory farm.
Lucy Rose Jaine first started hunting when she met her partner, The Sun reports. Since then, she’s fallen in love with the outdoors. She and her family go hunting about five to eight times per month.
They mainly hunt wild pigs, but they’ll also hunt deer, goats, wallabies and other animals. She uses the animals that she kills to feed her family…
“I like that we can teach our children how to hunt their own food,” she told The Sun.
She explained that “hunting wild meat is ideal, organic and sustainable” and said that, in contrast with animals being raised on factory farms, the animals she hunts are “living a good life.”
“The family mainly hunt wild pigs but also hunt deer, chamois, tahr, goats, rabbits and wallabies to fill their freezer.
Lucy estimates she saves about $200 per month through hunting animals for meat.”
“The kids love the adventure. We don’t do screens in our family. Being in the wilderness so much really sparks their imaginations.
“The hardest thing is finding places to hunt but we are pretty lucky with farmers ringing us to help them with their pig problem and NZ does have a lot of public hunting land. It’s all about who you know really.”
The biggest animal the family have hunted was a 17 stone boar and they hunt between five to 10 animals each month.
Lucy spoke about how she deals with the reactions she receives on social media.
“They say that I’m a hot little blonde pig hunting pocket rocket,” she said.
“I’ve had a few death threats from people who just don’t have any experience with hunting. Or maybe they are against animal cruelty. But I don’t take it to heart.
“I just tell myself, ‘that person must be going through something in their own life and I can’t judge what I don’t understand’. We make sure we respect the animal in the process.
I guess some women feel they can’t compete? Well, whatever the reason they should back off. She is simply feeding her family and taking a few photos. She is not hunting for sport, she is hunting to feed her family and there absolutely nothing wrong with that.
