AN AMERICAN huntress who posed for pictures with slain goats and sheep in Scotland is facing firearms charges.

TV presenter Larysa Switlyk, 33, had shared a photograph posing with the wild goat on the island of Islay in the autumn - but was widely criticised for the shot.

The TV personality had shared the photograph in a tweet that said it was a "fun hunt" and a "perfect 200 yard shot".

But it was today revealed she has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal over the alleged offences in September.

Argyll and West Dunbartonshire cops also confirmed that a 41-year-old man from the US had been reported.

A statement said: "Following several complaints of wild goat 'trophy' hunting on Islay in September, Police Scotland can now confirm that a 33-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man from the USA have been reported to the Procurator Fiscal for firearms offences."

It comes after she was branded as “barbaric” for posting images of her kills, which included a bloodied ram, a goat and a red stag.

A petition was even started calling for the Scottish Government to put a total ban on the hunting.
