A couple named Darren and Carolyn Carter has been getting all sorts of angry reactions after a picture of them kissing in front of a massive hunt of a lion in South Africa has come up online. The shocking picture shows the trophy hunters kissing with a corpse of a lion in front of them. The couple made the kill on the "canned hunt" experience in South Africa.

This ridiculous experience invites tourists to come and killed the magnificent beasts in a confined area. The hunters then take back the body parts to flaunt them as trophies of their kills. The practice seriously needs to be put an end to and there are various campaigns condemning it. Legelela Safaris, one of the many companies which give the provision of trophy hunting to tourists shared the picture of the Carter couple on their page.

These pictures are definitely shocking and as per reports in The Mirror the couple describes themselves as "Passionate conservationists." Residents of Alberta, they run a taxidermy business called Solitude Taxidermy. According to experts, the lion was bred specifically to be killed one day for someone's entertainment purposes. Eduardo Goncalves of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting told in a report to The Sun, "It looks as though this lion was a tame animal killed in an enclosure, bred for the sole purpose of being the subject of a smug selfie. This couple should be utterly ashamed of themselves, not showing off and snogging for the cameras."
