Donald Trump's Sons

Reportedly Under Investigation

for Controversial Hunting Trip

3/25/2012 5:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump's sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, are under investigation in Zimbabwe to determine if their hunting trip -- which made news when photos of the guys posing with dead animals surfaced last week -- was actually legal. 

The independent Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said that Trump's sons used a South African safari firm that is not registered in Zimbabwe during their 2011 hunting trip. They reportedly killed an elephant, an endangered leopard, a buffalo, a crocodile and other "big game" animals.

The task force is currently investigating whether license and trophy fees were paid and if the South African firm had been cleared by Zimbabwe wildlife authorities to operate.

Donald Jr. tweeted after the photos became public, saying, "I'm a hunter, for that I make no apologies ... 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."

Freakin douchebags. STFU with the feeding the villages. BS. They went to kill for fun. And maybe 2 percent of the meat went to the villagers just so they can claim that. Like father like son(s).

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? You think, in your arrogant little pea brain, that you can justify murdering endangered species by claiming to give the meat to hungry villagers. I wonder, did you ever worry about the comfort of these villagers before you choose to use them as a scapegoat for your illegal and immoral kill? Surely, the Trumps will get to experience some vicious bad karma before your lives are over.

To those saying he's nothing w/o "daddy's" money:
Donald Sr.'s money came from his daddy too.
And since then has declared bankruptcy twice.
Don't buy into the Trump image, because that's all it is.

"The villagers were so happy for the meat"

So the son of one of the richest people on Earth has to shoot animals to feed starving people?

"They killed an elephant, an endangered leopard, a buffalo, a crocodile"

This useless p.o.s. kills animals for fun while we are facing a world with a collapsing environment because of 7 billions of people on this planet. If everyone would live like him, the planet would be wasted in 10 min.

This focked up worthless son of a bitch is an alpha example of people who should be killed, to save this planet.

Wait twenty years, and it will be actually legal to kill useless rich idiots like him!

the Trump Jrs failed on this one...no one eats wildcat unless they are starving and my guess would be that you had high powered guns and apparently a non legal hunt provider.
May your first and only child die during birth with their mother...you too Derek

"I'm a hunter" That's a real laugh coming from a spoiled punk who lives a pampered luxury lifestyle. He's not a hunter, he's an overgrown frat boy, a piece of rich white trash who gets his kicks from murdering animals.

You can't justify killing an elephant (when 1000's get killed each year for ivory) or for food (also nobody eats elephant because the meat is very tough and tastes like nothing).

Killing a leopard (which will probably be extinct in 20 years) is also not made to be eaten by humans.

Killing buffalo's or crocks is justified since there are tons of those and they aren't even near endangered.

The best thing they should do is shoot that entire family.

Donnie and Eric you repulsive little c*nts:

I'm sure you're reading these posts, and as you can see the world thinks you're a couple of greasy pieces of excrement not worthy of inhabiting this planet. Your shameful, abhorrent acts are a reflection on all Americans when you go to an impoverished country to destroy endangered species - one of the few natural resources the country has to call it's own. You brought great sadness to the natives who see you as cruel savages, not a hero for providing them 'food' you thoughtless little pr*cks. Next time you want to dress up and play Rambo, do us a favor and take down your father, then each other.

Hmmm, fed hungry villagers who were "... the villagers were so happy for the meat which they don't often get to eat. Very grateful." I'm calling BS on that. They live there they know how to hunt and yet they don't get to eat meat often? Why? You're blowing smoke Trump. Nobody is going to buy the 'kids in China are starving' to justify you murdering endangered and non-endangered animals. Sadistic creep that you are.
