National Geographic plans to film a TV series with “animal murder queen” Melissa Bachman. For those who do not know who she is, Melissa is the host of several shows featuring the hunting and killing of animals for fun.
Here is some video footage of her exploits , please notice the obvious joy she has in terminating the life of these poor creatures!graphic content!
The 27 year old brags that she has been hunting and killing animals since childhood, for some 22 odd years, and despite her often expressed “love for nature and the outdoors” seems to fail to extend that “love” to her animal victims.Here a picture of a pint size Melissa with dead birds>
I guess the family that kills together stays together ? But does that not also apply to the mob ? Here is her self made video Bio – Graphic and disturbing content!
She asserts her online media presence with “kill shots” where she poses with the carcases of her plentiful kills. Sporting her signature pink hunting gear she has become the pinup girl of the hunting community.
Her message is disturbing- killing is fun and sexy! Is this the image National Geographic wants to propagate? As network dedicated to culture and the broadening of horizons National Geographic traditionally holds great influence in society.
Gone are the days where National Geographic Fetured Amasing actevists such as Jane Goodall with wonderful features such as these it seems:(
When did topics such as these become unimportant to them ?
I grew up reading National Geographic and it helped me form into the actevist i am today despite my families values. This is more than painful to watch. has our world gone totally off the deep end? HOW COULD YOU DO THIS National Geographic 😦
National Geographic has a strong influence in the media and its younger readers will learn what now ? It so fun to kill / This animal is so beautiful let me kill it ? the whole thing is so grotesque it seems to be satire, but sadly it is not because
Bachman her self mentioned the new show on her Facebook page (which was taken down today due to the many angry posts).
So dear readers if you are as appalled by all of this as I am please tell National Geographic you find a Melissa Bachman show to be an intolerable venue and that a show about killing animals for sport is unacceptable no matter who hosts it!
Remember this is not a woman hunting for food but someone who is killing for killings sake its revolting and should shock even the meat eaters amongst you. If you agree with me Please sign the Petition!
Earlier today “animal murder queen” Melissa Bachman had posted on her Facebook page that she was going to have her own show on news sparked an outrage amongst animal activists around the globe and several petitions including my first. We come to find out that Bachman exaggerated her role in the upcoming show when an inquiry was made with Net Geo. Here was their response –
Net Geo’s response:
If you’re inquiring about the rumors that we are having Melissa Bachman host a show on our channel, those rumors are false. Melissa Bachman is one outdoorsmen in a larger ensemble cast chosen to navigate the Alaskan terrain for an upcoming National Geographic Channel series. The series – which has just begun production and will likely air sometime next year – is not a platform for any of the featured players and is certainly in no way an endorsement of their activities outside of the show. Rather it is a test of survival and expedition skills passed down through generations as the teams explore the incredible Alaskan landscapes. Any interaction with wildlife during the course of the show will obviously respect any and all of the state’s wildlife procedures and laws, as is standard and expected practice at National Geographic Channel.
We still believe that action must be taken because we believe that people such as Melissa Bachman should not be given any exposure on a network that has a tradition to side with nature preservation
So at this point we altered the petition to request the removal of Bachman on the show instead of removing the show!
