The daughter of a couple who was indignant with a picture of those kissing beside the body of a lion they had just killed, swore to deny her parents.
In a video uploaded to YouTube, 19-year-old Sydney Carter said that after the photo she will never again be her father Darren from Edmonton, Canada, & # 39; father & # 39; will call.
Sydney, who has not seen her father in ten years, said she was disgusted after hearing that he had paid £ 12,000 to shoot the lion in South Africa.
& # 39; I refuse to call him my father, who does that? & # 39; she said in the clip.
Sydney Carter, 19, vowed for her father & # 39; father & # 39; never to mention again in response to the photo
Photos of Darren and Carolyn Carter, from Edmonton in Alberta, Canada, kissing while kneeling behind a lion they had just killed in South Africa, aroused indignation among animal lovers and conservationists
& # 39; I will never understand such people – who are proud to shoot a beautiful animal like a lion. I will never understand. & # 39;
Sydney also claimed that Darren, despite his generous holiday spending, reportedly cut off her child's assistance when she started college.
& # 39; Darren, if you ever keep an eye on this, know that I no longer call you my father. You are a terrible person.
& # 39; Knowing that your trophy hunt for beautiful animals such as lions, which are slowly endangered, is just … it's too much.
& # 39; I am someone who loves animals and doesn't want anyone to hurt them, and to know that my own father does – I don't even consider you my father anymore. & # 39;
Sydney claims that she will not see her father in ten years and that he reportedly stopped paying child support when she went to college
Other photos show the same pair for another dead lion, caption: & There is nothing like hunting the king of the jungle in the sand of the Kalahari & # 39;
Photos of the posing of Darren and Carolyn Carter after ending a hunt aroused indignation among animal lovers and conservationists.
Mr. and Mrs. Carter participated in a tour organized by Legelela Safaris when they shot and killed at least two lions.
The majestic creatures have been considered vulnerable since 1996 and their population has fallen by 43 percent in just 20 years.
Tourists can pay to take selfies with lion cubs or to walk with younger animals before being transferred to & # 39; hunting habits & # 39; where they cannot escape.
Hunters then pay to kill them in these facilities, which is much easier than following the wildlife.
The tour operator regularly shares snapshots of dead animals with proud hunters, often grinning as they raise their guns, on their Facebook page.
Under the kissing photo they wrote: & # 39; Hard work in the hot Kalahari sun … well done. A monster lion. & # 39;

& # 39; Well done for the lucky hunter and the team … & # 39;
The couple who run a taxidermy company have described themselves as & # 39; passionate conservationists & # 39; despite participation in yachts, the Mirror.
Eduardo Goncalves, the founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, believes the lions were caught and bred for the sole purpose of being killed by hunters.
He added: & # 39; This couple should be totally embarrassed, not show up and snarling at the camera & # 39; s. & # 39;
Legelela Safaris charges £ 2,400 for giraffe hunting and £ 2,000 for zebras. They also offer hunting for leopards, elephants, rhinos and lions.
The news comes after environment minister Michael Gove said he wants to ban big-game hunters from bringing trophies back from their murders.
