Donald Trump’s sons criticized after brutal hunting photos released
Donald Trump’s two sons went on a big game hunt in Africa, and the carnage they wrought has triggered outrage by wildlife enthusiasts.
Donald’s sons — Donald Jr. and Eric — went on a hunting safari in Zimbabwe a year ago this month, and proudly showed off their trophy kills — including an elephant, crocodile, kudu, civet cat and water buck.
In one shot, Donald Jr. is holding a dead elephant’s tail in one hand and a knife which appears to have cut off the tail in another.
A wildlife enthusiast’s website has just created a YouTube video of the slaughter expressing outrage.
As for Donald Trump, he tells TMZ, “My sons love hunting. They’re hunters and they’ve become good at it. I am not a believer in hunting and I’m surprised they like it.”
Trump added, “I know that anything they did was 100% OK in terms of the hunting community.”
says he bears NO SHAME for slaughtering a bunch of exotic animals in Africa last year … claiming all of his kills were used to feed local villagers.
TMZ broke the story … DTJ is coming under fire for a series of pics which show him posing with his brother in front of several dead animals after a hunt last year — even showing off a severed elephant tail.
Now, Trump Jr. is DEFENDING the hunt on Twitter … writing, ” I have no shame about [the pics]. I HUNT & EAT game … I’m a hunter, for that I make no apologies.”
He explained, “I can assure you it was not wasteful … the villagers were so happy for the meat which they don’t often get to eat. Very grateful.”
“These are not endangered animals as an fyi.”
As TMZ previously reported, Donald’s sons — Donald Jr. and Eric — went on a hunting safari in Zimbabwe a year ago this month, and killed an elephant, crocodile, kudu, civet cat and waterbuck.
