Officials with Idaho State University are distancing themselves from one of their accountants who is being criticized for posting photos of large animals she's killed while hunting in South Africa.

In a statement, the university told The Associated Press Tuesday that Sabrina Corgatelli's personal choices are not representative of the school.

Corgatelli has posted photos of trophy kills —which include a giraffe, a kuda, an impala, a wildebeest and a warthog. Her postings have drawn outrage from commenters on her Facebook and Instagram pages.

Corgatelli's postings showing her legal hunts come as a Minnesota dentist faces criticism and possible legal action after he killed a well-known lion named Cecil in Zimbabwe last month, allegedly during an illegal hunt.
