Tess Thompson Talley gushed about her experience of hunting a 'rare' giraffe in a Facebook post, which eNCA reported has since been deleted. learned Talley reportedly wrote the following on her Facebook page, along with photos of her trophy hunt:

"Prayers for my once in a lifetime dream hunt came true today! Spotted this rare black giraffe bull and stalked him for quite awhile".

The trip allegedly took place last summer, but South Africans' rage reignited after the pics started circulating on Twitter recently.

Tweeps took to the social media platform to share their disgust over Talley hunting such a 'vulnerable' animal for fun.

To put the cherry on the hate infused cake, American actress Debra Messing described Talley as "a disgusting, vile, amoral, heartless, selfish murderer".

The Will and Grace actress went on to say, "With joy in her black heart and a beaming smile she lies next to the dead carcass of a *rare* black giraffe in South Africa".

Talley has since defended herself saying the giraffe she shot belonged to a SA sub-species, that was in contradiction to her post, not rare.

In 2016, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature classified giraffes as a 'vulnerable' species.
