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 am willing to hunt Trump, jr. I don't know how to use a gun, but it hit him eventually. It's just sport right?

Hey JUNIOR!! You are WRONG when you say that the animals you killed are not endangered. The African elephant you killed is on the Threatened list (soon to be endangered with idiots like you using your lame ass guns)

You are not a MAN by hunting these beautiful creatures, you are bully and a loser for thinking that you are "hunting". If you truly want to be a hunter, hunt like the natives did on the African plains years ago, with spears. Give the animal a fighting chance and give them a chance to chase after you and for you too see how it feels.! LOSER!!!

I like how no one has a problem with people eating beef, ham, chicken, etc. but as soon as someone kills an animal that isn't on their personal diet, it's like "OMG U HORRIBLE ANIMAL KILLER"

And lol @ all these idiots asking why he wouldn't just buy the natives food. As if the meat he buys them come from animals that WEREN'T killed?

The Trumps aren't endangered either, fyi. I'll bet the villagers could have used some of the Trump money more so than that meat, but did he provide that? He is so disgusting. Just sayin

If it were legal, they would hunt people for sport with the same heartless attitude. These guys are another example of the 1% in action, sure when their done with their bloodsport, they might get around to doing something productive with their time, if it so pleases them.

As always, the Trumps lie. (I'm still waiting to hear what "unbelievable" things Trump's investigators found out about Obama, BTW.) Leopard meat is not consumed by humans, for example, so Jr. is lying.

It's one thing to kill for food. I don't do it but I have no problem with that. What I do find despicable is to kill animals to show how macho you're, probably to compensate your shortcomings, and the fact that if it weren't for nepotism, you'd be nowhere. Despicable d-bags. But what else can you expect from a Trump?
