Watch: Kristi Noem Responds to Critics; Calls Outrage 'Fake News' – EVOL

Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem fired back at the media and defended her decision to shoot a dog she said was dangerous decades ago on a rural property.

The revelation she shot and killed the animal has made headlines all week and has seen Noem dragged by animal lovers on both sides of the aisle.

She told Fox News on Wednesday evening that the “fake news” media has latched onto the story to portray her in a negative light.

Noem explained in her forthcoming book “No Going Back: The Truth on What’s Wrong with Politics and How We Move American Forward” how she decided to shoot a 14-month wirehaired pointer named Cricket two decades ago.

Noem explained the dog had been given to her after it had been deemed too aggressive by its previous owners.

As she trained it to help her hunt pheasant, she said the dog attacked her and some of her animals, so she made a decision to put it down.

On “Hannity” on Wednesday, Noem defended shooting Cricket and ripped the media.
