A number of things about trophy hunting make me livid.
The fact that there are people out there who want to kill beautiful animals.
The fact that these people gain pleasure from killing a sentient being from a cowardly distance.
The fact that they display the results of their hunting for the world to see.
At times I wish someone would hunt these trophy hunters and poachers.
I don’t have the courage to do this myself.
Luckily, as a writer I can create a character who does do this.
This book called She’s Coming For You details such a person.
Alex Peters has loved animals her whole life. When her friends expressed their sadness that no one was hunting the hunters of animals, she decided to rectify the situation. She was the ideal candidate. In her normal job, as a soldier behind enemy lines, she’d killed animal abusers when given the chance and the animals were given some respite from their ordeals.
Now she was not undercover. She was on holiday, travelling on the trains in Spain and Portugal.
There were no colleagues to back her up. She would have to take risks.
She doesn’t keep a diary of the deaths, but does like to write about the history of the places she has visited. This makes her seem like a normal human being – even when she isn’t.
