‘It’s a blood lust!’ Phillip Schofield clashes with ‘Sexy Hunter’ Mikela Fialova who claims she kills animals for ‘conservation’ as the host tells her he finds it ‘distressing’



Phillip Schofield was drawn into a tense debate with a guest known as the ‘Sexy Hunter’ who claims she kills animals in the name of conservation.

The This Morning host, 59, appeared to struggle with the idea during Tuesday’s show and said it was ‘blood lust’ to shoot an animal and post a picture online.

Mikela Fialova – who has been animals since she was 13 – explained she kills exotic animals due to ‘population control’ on the reserve.

During the latest episode of the magazine show, Phillip introduced his guest and said: ‘A lot of the distressed opinions are like a blood lust, you’ll drop an animal for what you’ll say is in the name of conservation.

‘I can’t imagine what it’s like to take down a Zebra – which is one of my favourite animals – or a which is my favourite animal.

‘That picture is so distressing to me, in the name of conservation, but then you post it – its just the blood lust.’

Mikela explained that she knows what she does is ‘shocking’ to some people and said that she is to prevent overpopulation.

She then asked Rochelle Humes, who was standing in for Holly Willoughby: ‘What does ‘looking after animals mean to you?’

Rochelle replied: ‘To respect, care and value their life. Do you not feel sad making those kills?’

Mikela answered: ‘It is, as long as you’re not a psychopath you find it hard. I don’t eat supermarket meat – I don’t want to see them suffer.’

As a counterargument, the ‘Sexy Hunter’ quizzed hosts Phil and Rochelle on whether they eat a meat-based diet and questioned how the two are different.

While admitting he does eat meat, Phil said: ‘The animals we’re eating in the supermarkets, their populations aren’t depleted by 40 per cent. I am much more plant-based, my meat intake has massively reduced.’

Meanwhile, Mikela explained why her relates to conservation, and said: ‘I have a certain area and there is so many of them, I can’t keep them there – just cos you find them cute. They eat the food for the other animals.

Phil interejected: ‘So, you’re playing God with your rifle?’

She replied: ‘Originally yes, but there is no other way, it sounds bad and it is – but there is no other way. What would you suggest? If you were in charge? It’s very easy to judge.

‘It is also about the people [who live in the area], who need birds to eat. 50% of their income is and they need it to live.’

At the end of the interview, Phil said: ‘You’ll have shot all the animals so then we’ll have to think about what we’re going to do…’

Following her appearance on the show, Mikela shared two pictured which appeared to be a reference to her debate on This Morning.
