for sure but online outrage, 73,000 comments on this post alone. some calling aryanna sick and an animal hater. even threatening the 12-year-old's life. >> they love animals, but i mean we love animals too. it's just we also love hunting. >> reporter: still some are defending the father/daughter duo writing let the haters hate. hunt away, aryanna. >> we're proud to be hunters and we'll never apologize for being a hunter. >> reporter: her dad says business. he maintains the hunting farm told them the giraffe was a problem animal and this isn't the first time social media has created a firestorm over big game hunts. minnesota dentist walter palmer sparked international outrage after killing cecil the lion in zimbabwe. despite the backlash, aryanna says she will keep hunting. >> i'm a hunter and no matter

we definitely want to make sure it doesn't happen again. >> reporter: police are still investigating a motive. >> this was an ongoing dispute with neighbors so, yeah, there's hate there. i just don't think the only reason is because they're middle eastern. >> reporter: for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. joining us now abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams. this is such a horrible story. you can understand the position of the family wondering why this neighbor was out in the first place. >> absolutely. i'm often on this defending judges saying it isn't intended to punish but it is intended to protect meaning if there is someone a threat to society or to their neighbors, that's the classic case where you don't release the person on bail or bond. and that's why this family has every right to look back and be furious. >> we hear in the report. it seems like they did everything they were supposed to do. >> everything right. >> and the police were there but they left.
have to answer some questions. doesn't necessarily mean they did anything wrong but they'll have to answer questions as to how is it they called the police right before this happened, i mean, this family repeatedly calls the police, repeatedly brings law enforcement in, repeatedly asks and gets restraining orders against this guy. their position at this point is what else could we have possibly done here? >> so what could be the possible defense? >> i expect that he willla this guy, the defendant now, also had asked for a restraining order against the victim. >> do we know why. >> yes, there were claims of he came over to his house and damaged property & that so i expect there will be some sort of self-defense claim. it's not a whodunit. it's clear he did it. the question is why. self-defense is not going to be easy considering the totality of these experiences.

y237yy ykny oh, it's that time again for our big board and our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's top stories and we're getting our money's worth out of dominique today. we'll have you doing exercises in our last half hour. >> that will be exciting. i'll be sweating. >> we are going to start with the highly anticipated first debate between hillary clinton and donald trump.
approaching lots of anticipation about how they're preparing. jon karl is joining us, so, jon, let's start with donald trump. how is he prepping for the first debate. >> you know, the big news that came out was the meeting that trump had with roger ailes, the former fox news chairman and one of the most experienced and skilled professional political debate preparers in the history of presidential politics. the campaign says he is not really an adviser, robin. it's not a formal or informal role but acknowledged they had a long conversation at one of trump's golf courses. back in 1988, i'm sorry, 1984 when ronald reagan was pressed about his age and said he would not exploit the youth and inexperience, it was roger ailes that was credited with coming up with that line, one of the most memorable ever. >> tell us this, whose job will it be to stand in that room with hillary clinton and throw at her
how she reacts that could make or break her? >> god, would you want that job? can you imagine? your job is explicitly to get under hillary clinton's skin. the campaign won't say, my guess is that it would be bob barnett who has played -- he played bernie sanders during the primary debate prep and worked with hillary clinton for a long time and he's done this stuff for many, many, many years. but that is one tough job, david, because you have to throw out all of the stuff the campaign expects fully expects that trump will throw everything at her including all of the stuff about her personal life, bill clinton's affairs. won't be easy. >> jon karl. >> huge numbers. they're talking about olympic size numbers, super bowl numbers of viewers watching. >> yeah. now to a stunning moment caught on camera serviing as a
right in. it's houston, texas, the real estate agent step as way and the woman appears to steel prescription medication and egypt sherrod joins us. great to have you. we've all had an open house at some point. it's not something you think about but opening your doors up to strangers. >> good morning, first and foremost. but what i will say is this is not the norm. however, over the years i have heard of several occurrences that would just shock you. anything from a realtor showing the house to other buyers and then they wander in the kitchen and notice that other would-be buyers are eating food out of the homeowner's cabinet and refrigerator. >> come on. >> or three people distract the realtor while one walks around the house casing the joint. it happens. >> oh, so what can people do to prevent this from happening, egypt? >> be smart. number one, hide your valuables, any expensive jewelry,
walk away and then conceal your personal information. many times people will think they locked everything away but left their mail or social security cards out. it is common that people will snatch your information and, therefore, steal your identity. another thing is ask your realtor to require a sign-in sheet when people come in your house and ask for i.d.s. if someone is there for the wrong reason they could sign the wrong name but if you ask for an i.d., chances are it will ward them off. >> >> thank you. if you are the type of person that leaves a spare key near the garage, hide those. chances are someone if they're there to case the joint or come back and steal something they'll snatch those keys and walk right out and lastly, when you return home, this is a big one, make sure you check all of your doors to make sure they're locked as well as your windows. it has happened where someone's walked right by, unlocked a window and came back later to basically rob the place.
house again. >> no. >> it is a great, great tip. >> good luck finding anything in my refrigerator that you want to eat. now to a fierce debate about sportsmanship. shaunae miller's dramatic dive for gold. it's legal. it's legal but it sparked backlash as you know on social media. this isn't the first time something like this has happened and talked about this yesterday, dominique. you said when it comes to the olympics by any means necessary but people are saying, really. >> people have to put things in perspective. i did the calculations. from my first olympic gapes to my second olympic games i was training 7,280 hours in the gym as a kid from my first to second olympic games, 1982 barcelona, 1996 olympic games. you will do whatever it takes to win a gold medal within the rules and my sport i am held at the mercy of the judges so really i have no control. shaunae miller had full control and if you have to dive to get across that finish line first
>> we've seen different things like this happen in sports. >> 2008 olympic game, david neill did it so it was him beati beating a behemian athlete. >> the hug taught us the opposite. >> sportsmanship. >> that's great. gold medalist shaunae miller is joining in our next hour. thanks to egypt and jon and dominique. the olympic king of self-23is scoring gold but missing a photo with michael phelps. our huge surprise, well, is it a
