Furrer posted that tweet just after anti-hunting activists began their vicious attacks on Corey Cogdell — a story brought to you exclusively by Twitchy.
Since the controversy began, Furrer has not tweeted a single word in support of Cogdell.
Fortunately, many Americans have stepped up to the plate to voice their support for a U.S. Olympic shooter facing unhinged death wishes.

Update: Furrer has deleted the tweet featured at the top of this post and stated unequivocally that she stands by Cogdell:
It sounds like Furrer may have received threatening messages from anti-hunting activists. We have asked her for clarification and will update if/when we hear back.
