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.

The Trump boys all have tiny little johnsons. This is why they feel the need to show off, grandstand, and kill. Just ask their ex wives.

I can understand why people get upset, im 25, and my oldest daughter is 6-year-old, I took her pet rabbit and made her watch as I shot it and then I made her eat it.
Its very important we teach our fellow people where our meat comes from. and yes, im swedish, and no, I dont live in the country side. I have a house here in the capital in Stockholm. And yes, mayby it was wrong to make her eat her pet rabbit, but Donald JR is right, this is food.

I don't have a problem with them hunting wild game as long as they spend an equal number of days alone and unarmed in the wilderness allowing the animals a turn to hunt them.

Disgusting. I hope they all die the same way they killed innocent animals. I know that these boys must be trying to prove they are men since they ride their father's coattails but a real man is kind to animals. I will not watch the stupid show ever again. I would kick their asses if I could right now. What makes someone think that they can just go with a weapon and kill an animal. Grow a **** boys!!!

Disgusting killing helpless animals. We were put on this earth as guardians for the defenseless. I am horrified and have no respect for the man and his family. Put him out there without a gun and watch him cry.
