An American TV presenter has sparked outrage after she shared a photo of herself with a lion that she apparently shot dead on a hunting trip to South Africa.

Melissa Bachman posted the picture on her Facebook page and has received over 1,440 'Likes' for the 'trophy' snap.

According to The Guardian, she took part in a legal hunt at the Maroi conservancy in the northern Limpopo province.

He tweeted: "'@melissabachman: incredible day in South Africa! Stalked this male lion…what a hunt!' spot the typo"

On her Facebook page, Melissa posted other disturbing photos of animals she had hunted during her trip.
