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.

It's big game hunting. It's not like he shot and killed kittens or puppies.

What's really funny is seeing the gender divide - most of the males are pro-hunting and most of the females are anti-hunting. It's like explosions... men love explosions, women... not so much. Blah blah blah...

Donald,
Tell the boys to not worry about criticism. Through hunter's license purchasing, it allows game managers and perpetuates their existence.

Does killing INNOCENT animals make these 2 real Men ? I do not think so i think it makes them poor excuses for men, and cowards also.

What a mean-spirited idiot. And then when he gets caught and the backlash begins, he tried to spin it as though he's really a humanitarian or that this violent murder of innocent animals for sport is at all justifiable.
