CLEBURNE, Texas (WTNH) — Thousands of people are trying to get a 19-year-old cheerleader banned from Facebook after she posted photos of her killing endangered animals on her page.

Kendall Jones has been hunting big game in Africa since she was 13 years old. She’s gaining widespread criticism because of the photos she’s put up on her page, “Kendall Takes Wild.”

In those photos, some of which are fairly gruesome, she’s seen posing over bodies of recently killed animals, such as white rhinos, elephants, lions, and leopards.

More than 40,000 people signed one online petition started in response to Jones’ page, demanding Facebook remove it.

Jones has stood by her photos and posts, saying she’s interested in the conservation of wildlife.

A television show following Jones’ hunting adventures is still set to air in 2015 on Pigman TV, despite this recent controversy.
