Hunters Epically Troll PETA’s “Shoot Selfies, Not Animals” Facebook Filter With Wild Game Pictures

Hunting season is just around the corner. Of course, the activists comprising the alleged People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are trying to ruin momentum for the upcoming season with their latest efforts to promote their “Shoot Selfies, Not Animals” campaign.

However, their attempts to share their message hasn’t gone unnoticed from hunters and sportsmen. In fact, the response from hunters across social media have been oh so delicious.

Here’s where the campaign can be found on Facebook. I took a snapshot of what it looks like when you try to apply any filter:

And clearly this campaign by PETA has, point blank, backfired. Here’s how some hunters have responded to the social media campaign:

Megan Ellenburg
Alexander Friborg
Sabrina Ferri
Julianne Harris
Brooke Winn

"How bad is @peta's social media person feeling?

How did they think this campaign wouldn't end badly for them? #ShootSelfiesNotAnimals

Hunting is very much part of the American fabric and will continue to remain as such. Contrary to PETA’s messaging, hunters and anglers are more conservation-minded than they are and don’t kill most of the shelter pets they take in as this activist group does.

Hunting season is just around the corner. Happy trails, everyone!
