One Texas Tech cheerleader is in hot water for some pictures she just posted on Facebook.

They were pictures of animals she killed on a safari-style hunt in Africa. In one of the, 19-year-old Kendall Jones is standing with a dead leopard.

Jones said she's been hunting since she was a kid and her dad took her on this hunt.

Jones said she gave the meat to local villagers, but doesn't want to quit the hobby.
She also has pictures with dead elephants, lions, hippos, zebras, and other safari animals.

But fans of her Facebook page said they will unfollow her if she keeps posting them.

They said she's killing animals that should be protected and it's not fair.
She argued that all the animals die after a fair chase and that she shouldn't have to take them down.

For our Social Media Question of the Day on our Facebook page, we are asking you what you think. Should Kendall stop hunting the animals and posting pictures? Or should the Facebook fans just unfollow her if they don't want to see it?

Head to our Facebook page, comment and let us know. We'll share some of your answers in the 9 o’clock hour of The Morning Show.
