In absolutely tragic news, a European hunter has reportedly taken her own life after weeks of online harassment.
Melania Capitan, 27, was well-known in the online hunting communities amassing a large following as she depicted her outdoor-inspired life. Much the same as many of us, Melania’s profiles were filled with images, blogs and videos of her living her life in the great outdoors.
The young hunter apparently left a suicide note after receiving a number of online threats, which did not subside in the wake of her tragic death.
As the Daily Mail reported on the story, the derogatory comments continued to pour in, adding salt to the still fresh wound.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Melania and her family through this difficult time. It is times like these when the hunting community needs to band together and continue to support fellow hunters and our way of life.
