The cheerleader has been hunting big game in Africa since she was 13, and the page is filled with pictures of the university student posing over the bodies of dead animals, including rhinos, lions, cheetahs and elephants.

Jones' Facebook page 'Kendall Takes Wild' has over 12,000 followers - many of whom are hunting fans themselves.

However, the teenager is now facing a backlash from other social media users, who want the page taken down.

Over 40,000 people have now signed an online petition in response to her Facebook page, citing animal cruelty as the reason.

A separate petition has also been started to get Kendall banned from South Africa, where she often hunts.

But Jones seems undeterred by the recent criticism, posting to her Facebook page on Tuesday: 'I just want to THANK all of my supporters for their continued encouragement and backing! I will continue to hunt and spread the knowledge of hunting and wildlife conservation.'
