A hunter has sparked outrage by posting dozens of photos of children as young as five posing with dead animals on Facebook.

Kendall Jones, from Texas, US, received death threats in 2014 after posing and smiling for graphic photographs after killing the Big Five – lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant.

But she refuses to apologise for the graphic images and even vowed to carry on killing endangered animals, despite a petition of 175,000 calling for her to be banned from Africa.

Now it has been discovered that the 22-year-old has been encouraging parents to get their children involved in killing animals for fun.

For the last year, parents have been sending her pictures of the blood-splattered children – some as young as five – posing with their ‘first kills’.

She even launched a ‘Cute Little Hunter’ competition, with nearly 2000 parents sending in pictures.

Kendall then posts them online – where she has a following of millions.

In one picture, a girl believed to be around six years old is seen holding the antlers of a recently killed large deer, with blood smeared on her young face.

Alongside the photo, Kendall wrote: ‘I think this is my favourite fan photo of the year so far. Need more fan pics guys. Please add them to my wall and DM them to me!’

The hunter started killing animals when she was just eight years old.

And despite animal rights organisations and conservationists worldwide calling for her to be banned from hunting, Kendall has made a fortune from the controversial ‘sport’.

Her YouTube TV Channel and social media presence has earned her hundreds of thousands of fans as well as TV appearances, endorsements and clothing deals.

In 2015 she hit the headlines once more for dressing up as Cecil the Lion slayer Walter Palmer at Halloween.
