HYDE COUNTY, N.C. — A woman is facing criticism for posting photos of a 510-pound bear she shot and killed in Hyde County.

Eva Shockey, 26, posted the photos to her Facebook page on Nov. 14 and 15 and immediately started getting negative feedback.

“Some days I’ll wake up and I’ll literally have — I’ve had 5,000-plus death threats in one day,” she told The Blaze.

The two photos she posted have received more than 8,000 comments over the past few days.

“I don’t take [the negative comments] personally,” she told The Blaze. She said it “saddens” her more than angers her.
