Instagram Trophy Huntress Who Poses With Dead Bears Blasts Her Critics As ‘Uneducated’

A 23-year-old hunter who kills and then poses with brown bears has slammed the ‘uneducated hypocrites’ who eat meat but threaten her to shoot wild animals.

Alexandra Tyutcheva is a hunting manager from Serpukhov, Russia, and has travelled up to 300 miles from home to track down deer, bears, and rams with her father, 53, since she was 18 years old.

Online trolls dubbed Alexandra a ‘cruel killer’ and said, ‘I wish you were lying there instead of the bear’ in a series of vicious online messages. Others have said that their future kids ‘will be paying for that’.

Yet Alexandra revealed that ‘hunting is part of who I am now.’ She completes her Bachelor’s thesis on sport, and works to ensure that hunting is ‘sustainable’ and ‘for conservation.’

She said: ‘There are many people that don’t understand and throw hate at you whilst having zero knowledge on the topic.

‘It’s hypocritical to eat meat and then also criticise people who work hard to provide their own meat for themselves. On Instagram, I share links to articles that educate people about sustainable and conservation hunting.’

Alexandra has been fishing and camping with her father since she was 12, but her mother and three sisters aren’t interested in joining them.

‘My father and I are very close. We spend a lot of time together hunting with our guests. My mum and three sisters don’t enjoy hunting but they support us. Hunting isn’t for everyone,’ she added.

Properly managed hunting ‘can increase the number of elephants in Africa by thousands or bighorn sheep in the US’, Alexandra claimed.

She blasted her critics for not understanding the effect of hunting on ecology.  

No part of the animals Alexandra and her father kill go to waste. She dries out the skin, eats the meat, and boils antlers and horns for taxidermy.

She added: ‘In Russia, it’s not unusual to drive five hundred kilometres to go hunting – especially if you live near a city – so you don’t go very often.

‘The biggest hunt I’ve had was a Kamchatka brown bear. We don’t weigh them but it must’ve been around two hundred and fifty kilograms.’

Hunting is Alexandra’s ‘hobby, job and philosophy’. She said: ‘I love the strong connection I have to nature and the understanding of how things work in life.

‘You challenge yourself in harsh conditions – storms, rain, and snow – but that’s just nature. You become more patient with experience.’

Alexandra hopes to inspire others to embrace their passion as she does hers. ‘Hunters, do not hide your passion or apologise for being a hunter,’ she added.

‘As for other people, do not judge something you don’t understand. Search for information and talk to people – try to learn. Curiosity and self-education is important.’
