Phillip Schofield expertly shut down a hunter who kills zebras and giraffes in the name of ‘conservation’ on today’s episode of This Morning.
Michaela Fialova joined the programme live from Czech Republic to defend her reasons for shooting these animals in Africa, stating that ‘there is no other way’.
‘Every place has limited resources of how many animals can live there and everything else must be taken out,’ she declared. ‘Our entire world is limited.’
‘So you’re playing God with your rifle?’ an intrigued Phil asked later in the interview.
‘Basically yes,’ Michaela said. ‘There is no other way. It sounds bad and it is bad but there is no other way to manage animals. What would you suggest?’
She continued: ‘It’s very easy to judge from where you sit’, before saying that hunting plays a huge part in people’s livelihoods.

Phil interrupted Michaela though as the interview began to go off topic and they ran out of time.
Rochelle Humes, who is filling in for Holly Willoughby on This Morning this week, interjected: ‘We wanted to talk about you and your story.’

Wrapping things up with a savage remark, Phil added: ‘We’re going to have to leave it there, and you’re absolutely right because eventually, we will have to think of something else because you’ll have shot all the animals.
‘We’ll have to think about what else we’re going to have to do.’
Many viewers aired their disappointment with ITV for inviting Michaela onto the show to be interviewed.
‘It’s almost like #ThisMorning like causing drama,’ wrote one. ‘It’s obvious they just want to be trending etc, otherwise why have an “animal loving” hunter on for an interview? It’s obvious there’s going to be uproar about her. It’s just unnecessary’
‘You deserve any complaints you get for having this animal killing woman on the show. What was the point of this interview?’ another added.
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
