Donald Trump's Sons

Ignite War

Over Animal Butchery

Donald Trump's two sons went on a big game hunt in Africa, and the carnage they wrought has triggered outrage by wildlife enthusiasts. 

Donald's sons -- Donald Jr. and Eric -- went on a hunting safari in Zimbabwe a year ago this month, and proudly showed off their trophy kills -- including an elephant, crocodile, kudu, civet cat and water buck. 

In one shot, Donald Jr. is holding a dead elephant's tail in one hand and a knife which appears to have cut off the tail in another.

A wildlife enthusiast's website has just created a YouTube video of the slaughter expressing outrage.

As for Donald Trump, he tells TMZ, "My sons love hunting. They're hunters and they've become good at it.  I am not a believer in hunting and I'm surprised they like it."

Trump added, "I know that anything they did was 100% OK in terms of the hunting community."

Since when can't men hunt. We have been hunting for years and years, for sport and food. Get over it people, it's not that big of deal. It ain't like they were beating baby seals over the head with clubs, or shooting kittens like skeet.

I make fun of those PETA freaks all of the time, but seriously who the hell hunts elephants?

Wonder if TMZ is going to do a story on Bill Maher and his ex today. Racial slurs, $9,000,000.

I come from a family of hunters. I have no problem with hunters who eat their kill. This is just plain barbaric. Little man needs this to make himself look big. I hope someone blows a hole in him and cuts an appendage off him some day so he'll know how it feels.

Not that it would matter to a hunter, but I completely condone hunting - for food, for culling herds, for protection. What I do not condone is the wanton slaughter of animals for sport. Did the mighty hunters do a sponsored hunt on land where they were in no danger and the animals were easy to get? That would be my bet. False bravado for false men.

There's a difference between hunting for meat and respecting the creature, than just going to kill something for fun. Trumps idiot son killed for the sake of killing and to have "bragging rights." He is no hunter.

Elephants are sacred. Any human that doesn't have reverence for nature and wildlife has no soul. They choose to slaughter these animals? Then let them be slaughtered one day, if there is any karma in this life.

For the doosh bags who already have everything - an elephant truck. Reprehensible.
