Blonde 19-year-old Texas Tech cheerleader Kendall Jones is taking heat for hunting big game in Africa and posting pictures of the kills on her Facebook page, Kendall Takes Wild.

Jones started hunting as a child. She took two trips to Africa, when she was nine and 13, but waited to shoot anything until she was able to attempt the Big Five: a lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros. She’s had some success, and her Facebook page has more than 21,000 likes.

But more than 48,000 people have signed a petition demanding Facebook take down the page for “the sake of all animals, especially the animals in the African region… where hunters are going for fun just to kill an animal!”

Here are some of the photos so you can judge for yourself:
