Charisa Argys is mad, and she’s not going to take it anymore.
Check it out:
Argys, a 33-year-old working mother of two who is a lifelong hunter, was targeted by social media posts, including death threats, for her trophy shot with a mountain lion killed legally in her home state of Colorado.
She went on the offensive, contacting authorities and media outlets to tell her story and ask what further steps she and others could take so they wouldn’t have their lives and the lives of their family threatened.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think this would happen to me,” she said of the attacks. “I have to stand up for myself and for the other women. I want to see things change. I want to see things in place to protect us, to protect the sport.
“That’s my focus. That’s what I want to do. I don’t need any more death threats … I have seen support from many more hunters – ‘We understand what you are doing.’ ”
