The anyway controversial Miss Bulgaria 2009 Antonia Petrova has just caused a new public scandal with the display of a photo session in which she is all dressed in fur.

The past couple of days have seen an explosion of outrage in Bulgarian social media and online forums over Petrova's fur-clad photos. However, she has reacted by slamming the slam environmentalists and other citizens expressing outrage at her photo session.

"I love animals and this includes not just wearing them, but also eating them," said on the bTV channel Monday the controversial Miss Bulgaria 2009.

In her words, she has been attacked so vigorously by eco-activist for personal reasons, and because people felt provoked by the fact that her fur photo sessions was made during a vacation in Switzerland.

"Everything is too personal. The problem is that it's me. There are scandals around me all the time because I don't keep quiet and have an active civic position," Petrova explained.

"None of these so called environmentalists can face me because my arguments are as firm as steel. I am absolutely certain that I am right. These people write in forums, and then have a nice steak for dinner," she declared, asking why eco-activists do nothing against hunters in Bulgaria.

"Do you know how many hunters are there in Bulgaria? Over 300 000. Do you know how many soldiers the Bulgarian army has? 30 000. Is nobody worried by that?" Petrova said.

The controversies around Miss Bulgaria 2009 started as soon as she was awarded her title which she won through a SMS Text vote, fueling suspicions that her then boyfriend said to be a wealthy businessman "bought" her the title thanks to the voting rules; others have criticized her for receiving the Miss Bulgaria title with the unfair advantage of having breast implants.
