Hunter gets on crit­ics’ goat

The Herald - - NEWS -

A SO-CALLED “pro­fes­sional huntress” who sparked out­rage af­ter pos­ing with a goat she killed while hunt­ing in Scot­land has launched t-shirts taunt­ing her crit­ics.

Larysa Swit­lyk, 33, sparked out­rage af­ter post­ing pic­tures of her­self with the wild goat on Is­lay on so­cial me­dia.

More than 12,000 peo­ple com­mented, prompt­ing the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment to prom­ise a re­view on an­i­mal culling laws.

Ms Swit­lyk has now re­sponded to crit­ics with a t-shirt car­ry­ing the slo­gan ‘Don’t let me get your goat’.

She said: “Due to the out­rage over my hunt­ing ad­ven­tures I’ve launched T-shirts to take a stance for what I be­lieve in. A per­cent­age of ev­ery shirt sold goes to­wards con­ser­va­tion ef­forts for the world’s capra species.”
