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.

Just like their f***king idiot father. Always a sense of entitlment regardless of whos expense it's at. I'd like to lop their balls off for a trophy and feed the rest of them to the villagers.

So he is a hunter, why does that make people crazy? If he is lucky enough to have the talent, money, and opportunity to do it,why not? Hope this pisses off PETA

I agree..who eats elephant meat? Do you realize how social they are and familial. Elephants never forget so in killing the one elephant you killed his herd. Jackass. Typical rich arrogant attitude. You could use your money for far better things, like feeding the village in other ways or buying them a trump tower for that matter. Jerk!
