Wildlife presenter Melissa Bachman has sparked outrage after stalking and shooting a lion.
The TV presenter recently posted a picture of her beside a dead male lion which attracted almost 245,000 signatures to see her banned her from South Africa.
With the picture, she wrote: "An incredible day hunting in South Africa! Stalked inside 60-yards on this beautiful male lion... What a hunt!"
Signatories wrote a letter addressed to Mkuseli Apleni, the director general of South Africa's Department of Home Affairs, Bomo Edna Molewa at the Ministry of Water and Environmental Affairs, and Lakela Kaunda from the private office of the president, saying:
"Melissa Bachman has made a career out of hunting wildlife, for pure sport.
"Her antics are captured extensively on her personal website.
"She is an absolute contradiction to the culture and conservation this country prides itself on. Her latest Facebook post features her with a lion she has just executed and murdered in our country.
"As tax payers we demand she no longer be granted access to this country and its natural resources."
