Hunter taunts critics with range of online T-shirts
BY STUART MacDONALD AN AMERICAN hunter who caused outrage after posting photos of goats and sheep she killed on a Scottish island has taunted critics by launching a range of T-shirts celebrating the controversy.
TV presenter Larysa Switlyk, 33, received global criticism after she and a companion were pictured smiling with animals they shot on Islay.
But she has unveiled a collection of T-shirts and hoodies bearing the slogans “Don’t let me get your goat,” “Eat More Goat” and “‘Barbaric’ Hunter.”
She posted a photo of herself wearing a shirt on Instagram captioned: “Due to the recent outrage over my hunting adventures, I’ve decided to launch 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. I will never apologize for being a hunter.”
But Switlyk was blasted on social media.
Patrick Galbraith, editor of the Shooting Times, said: “Beyond distasteful that @LSwitlyk is shamelessly attempting to capitalise on a pathetic stunt that may ultimately harm fieldsports in Scotland.”
