Donald Trump's Sons

Ignite War

Over Animal Butchery

0312_trump_hunting_launch_EX_v3
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."

Wow, hunting is how my family fills up my freezer. My family also has become great shooter`s practicing on bottles or target`s with bullseye`s. Some ego to appease. Do you really need such a big target? Do you eat elephant?

this is so silly and quite uncooth. how do you go to another country and kill animals that you actually travelled far to go and see. these animals earn these poor countries money through tourism.the citizens of these countries arent allowed to kill these animals for anything,infact they are jailed if they do that yet some stupid filthy rich take advantage of the poor people saying they love hunting,that the villagers ate the food.must you be the one to kill them for them, they can too but they protect the animals afteral they only ate the meat because you had killed them. if so why did you kill the animals that cant be eaten as well like the lion? what excuse do you have for that? stop it and stop it.stop this useless and babaric act on wild animals that are almost exticnt. you handle africans like non human beings.who can allow africans to go to usa and kill animals like that. it was just the othe day when some stupid man let the animals out leading to them over 50 animals being killed. some of them were rear animals people stole from africa. you contribute to their poverty then abuse them for being poor. please respect africa and africans.the animals have been put in reserves and parks that has taken rich land from the poor people. they have accepted the fact just to allow animals to thrive yet some crude and cruel people do this. tooooo harsh.

Did they forget to mention that this was a cow elephant that had destroyed village huts and farms and injured native villagers (Just like a bear that keeps coming into town and tearing things up)and that the villagers typically get the animal as a means of substance and food? Oh yeah, this liberal website must have overlooked that. Maybe people should check out an entire story before jumping on any bandwagons.

helloooooo we are not cavemen anymore! We now know and appreciate that these animals are family to each other and actually grieve the deaths of their own like we do. Once these hunters advance their knowledge and learning abilities, maybe they will see what they are doing and it will make them as sick as it makes me!
