Donald Trump Jr.

Yes, I Killed Those Animals

... and I'm PROUD of It!

Donald Trump Jr. 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.

I only consider you a hunter if you have no food to eat. If you can afford to feed the whole ****ing world like the Trumps can, then you're just a murderer with blood lust...

This isnt hunting. Everything about this is setup so you end up bagging what you are after. Killing an elephant? Is that really hunting ?

It must take so much courage to look at a defenseless animal trying to exist and shoot it
in the head.
I have nooooooooooooooooo respect for "hunters" who don't need to do that to feed a
family. It is horrible and I don't know how they sleep at night, seeing an innocent animal
destroyed for the fun of it. Rich, spoiled brats never worked for anything!

Hmm, he could have brought them food, built a school or donated money...but no.

Reminds me of what Carl did last night (walking dead) to prove to daddy that he's a man now.
