US TV star 'gets death threats' after hunting goats
Larysa Switlyk sparked fury after being pictured with dead animals on Islay.
A 'professional huntress' who posted pictures of herself posing with a wild goat shot on Islay claims to have received death threats.
American TV presenter Larysa Switlyk, who hosts the Larysa Unleashed programme on various channels, has been widely criticised after posting a picture of herself smiling behind the dead goat.
The Scottish Government has said it will review the law around animal culling in the wake of the response to the images.
In a message on Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday night, Ms Switlyk said she was heading into the wild to connect back with nature, posting a picture of herself next to a small seaplane.
She wrote: "My ride has arrived - I'm headed out on a bush plane for my next hunting adventure and will be out of service for two weeks.
"Nothing better than disconnecting from this social media-driven world and connecting back with nature.
"Hopefully that will give enough time for all the ignorant people out there sending me death threats to get educated on hunting and conservation. FYI, I was in Scotland over a month ago."
The post attracted criticism on Twitter, with many people saying they hope Ms Switlyk does not return to Scotland.
The presenter, whose Larysa Unleashed website says she is blossoming into a "hardcore huntress", also posted pictures of herself and companions posing with stags and a sheep on their hunting trip in Scotland.
The Scottish Government said responsible and appropriate culling of some wild animals, including deer and goats, is not illegal.
A spokesman said: "Responsible and appropriate culling of animals is a necessary part of sustainable land management and the culling of some wild animals, including deer and goats, is not illegal.
"However, we understand the concerns caused by these images and, in light of them, the Environment Secretary will review the situation and consider whether any clarification of or changes to the law might be required."
