Dad's Photo of Daughter Eating Something Weird Gets Huge Backlash When People Realize What It Is

A hunter took his 8-year-old daughter out on a trip and was proud when she made her first kill. He posted an account of the trip to Facebook, as well as photos showing the little girl taking a bite from her prey's heart. A lot of people did not approve.

The New Zealand man named Johny didn't expect it to be a big deal. He was a hunter and he brought his 'pink ninja princess' Chloe along, where the girl bagged her first young stag.

"Shot in a bush block on a friends [sic] farm last weekend,” wrote Johny.

The proud papa included photos of himself, his daughter and the deer, as well as one photo that stirred a lot of controversy. As Johny explains it, the photo shows Chloe taking 'a bite from its warm quivering heart.'

The post is going viral, but not to praise the young hunter. Commenters are slamming Johny for being 'sadistic' and for letting his daughter eat a 'disgusting' and 'disease-ridden' organ. Even pro-hunters thought Johny took it too far by allowing Chloe to bite the heart, and many speculated on whether Chloe might be a psychopath for being willing to take the bite.

Other hunters admonished the critics, saying that Chloe participated in an old hunting ritual.

“I’d quote the saying, ‘Lions do not care of the opinions of sheep'," said Johny in response to the criticism. She wanted to do it when she saw a picture of her uncle biting the heart of his first deer."

“We’re not too serious about it; it’s something some hunters do with the first kill. I wouldn’t say [it is] ritualistic, but she is a hunter now,” Johny concluded.
