PETA Slams Donald Trump's Sons For Killing Rare Wildlife

Mon, March 12, 2012 10:10pm EST by 92 Comments

The animal rights organization tells HollywoodLife.com that the Trumps’ behavior is ‘grisly.’

Donald Trump’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, went on a game safari in Zimbabwe last year that turned into quite the bloodbath. “My sons love hunting,” Donald tells TMZ. “They’re hunters and they’ve become good at it.” But HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned that not everyone was thrilled with their hunt.

Photos of Eric and Donald Jr.’s kills, including an elephant, crocodile, kudu, civet cat and waterbuck, have generated outrage from fans and animal rights organizations alike. One of the gruesome photos shows Donald Jr. holding a dead elephant’s tail in one hand and a knife which appears to have cut off the tail in his other, reports TMZ. A wildlife enthusiast’s website even created a YouTube video of the slaughter expressing its fury.

“Like all animals, elephants, buffalo, and crocodiles deserve better than to be killed and hacked apart for two young millionaires’ grisly photo opportunity,” a spokesperson from PETA exclusively tells us exclusively. “If the young Trumps are looking for a thrill, perhaps they should consider skydiving, bungee jumping, or even following in their anti-hunting father’s footsteps and taking down competing businesses—not wild animals. If the Trumps want to help villagers, they have plenty of resources at their disposal.”

What do you think about the Trump boys’ extracurricular activities HollywoodLifers?

Hunting is legal and if you don’t like it don’t read about it. If you want to do some good come up north to Oakland and see if you can stop the killing of innocent people that happens almost daily.

I will not be watching Celebrity Apprentice again as long as Eric is on that show. I can’t stand to look at him. If you’re upset with what they did, join me and let the Donald know. Send him a tweet or just stop watching the show.

EVERYONE Cares what John thinks because we ALL feel as he does. How do you think we got where we are today? By the way John, I think you meant rogue! God put animals on earth to provide for man. MAN is the dominant pursuer on earth!! PETA stands for People Eating The Animals!! doesn’t it? Since the beginning of man, existance depends on animal and their parts to provide for man. Wish they’d send me a tropy head to hang on my wall.
You complainers need to get a life.

TEXAS!!! Oh what a surprise. “because we ALL feel as he does”
Really? REALLY? Obviously not. You and John from Oakland can’t be satisfied with having your own opinion – you have to try to convince everyone else that your opinion is fact. Sad really.

I am horrified. That beautiful cat, and elephant and all the rest of them killed for sport, by rich aholes. I’m very upset over this. It really put a downer on my day. I hope they come to their senses and stop doing this. I’ll never watch their shows, go to their casinos or give them another dime to support this slaughter. SIGH

Blood lust for animal trophies dehumanizes man. The Trump spawn are mistaking purchased “skill” for talent. Shame on them. That elephant could have used that tail. It was likely (as were the other “trophies”) formerly tame animals unable to compete against guided (for profit) hunters with expensive weapons. With species decimation at current rates, we can’t afford the Trumps of this world continuing to do what they do. Shame on Trump and Trump spawn. Did they need to eatwhat they killed? Did their trophy meat feed others? What’s the point of human ego-driven trophy kills? Ain’t a fair fight. And with this kind of sport, it’s millionaires only. Expletive-deleted that.

IT IS SO WRONG. THE BIG WHITE HUNTERS SHOULD GO TO TH ELEPHANT RESCUE
CENTER AND LEARN HOW THE ELEPHANTS FEEL AND HOW HUNTING ELEPHANTS
IS DEVASTATING TO THE HERD WHEN ONE IS LOST.
IT JUST MAKES ME SICK. THEY COULD BE DOING SO MUCH FOR THE ANIMALS AND MANKIND WITH THEIR MONEY INSTEAD THEY USE IT TO DESTROY LIFE.
I HOPE THEY HEAR FROM MANY PEOPLE ABOUT THEIR TOTAL DISRESPECT FOR WILDLIFE.

First of all the Elephants that are hunted are rouge animals, not part of a herd. And why must everybody see things your way? What makes you the queen bee? I am a hunter and I have taken every big game animal in California.I am sorry for you that you feel sick when an animal is killed….But, that is your issue not mine as a hunter. What I do is perfectly legal…

Yes, I agree thoughly with this one, They just dont know the value of life, the feelings and love these animals are capable of. To bad they were raised without feelings.

Donald should keep his views of his son’s actions closer to home and not share them with the community at large. He should not use his son’s on his show, as this may affect his ratings. I do not agree with hunting unless it is for survival needs. I don’t care that they may have feed some people with their kills. It was for sport for them, nothing more. Shame. The 1% always think they can do whatever they want without consquences.

Killing animals with high-powered rifles for sport is just sick. Animals like leopards and elephants should be protected not killed by stupid, lazy billionaires. Elephants grieve the loss of thier family members as much as humans do. Sometimes they are so sad about the loss of their infant or parent that they stop eating and continually go back to their loved ones final resting place.
There is so much that we are only just beginning to understand about animals and nature. People like the Trumps could do so much good with their wealth, but instead choose to destroy and not give back to the earth. Very sad to see.

i have always enjoyed the apprentice since its inception. i will no longer watch any program where the trumps are featured. i do not always agree with peta but in this case where highly intellegent animals are slaughtered- i do agree with peta.

There is something sick & repulsive about the picture of Trump Jr holding an elephant’s tail in one hand and a knife in the other. I think there is are signs of a sick & dangerous mind here – beyond the obvious sense of entitlement of wealth & a famous name, this is scary stuff. Too bad they wouldn’t use their advantages in life to to good things instead of evil – they are making the world an uglier place.

Dear A Hunter: You are the moron. What does being a “redneck” have to do with this story? The whole controversy has to do with these two rich, spoiled, bored little boys going to Africa and killing these animals to “get off”. They probably had to change their pants after each one. It’s disgusting that someone would get that kind of enjoyment taking a life – any life. Also, moron, your comment about PETA caring more about animals than humans. Perhaps what you meant to say is they care more about animals than a human’s “enjoyment”. You are a moron and I’m sure “proud of it”.

these guys are so effin creepy!
i don’t know what it is, they just look so.. incestuous.

and i’m not surprised they have no empathy for animals. look at the personality traits their father commends. a backstabbing, sociopathic, money and power hungry a-hole is their father’s perfect son. i’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that that’s exactly what these two have become.

i love hunting, whether it be deer, wild hogs, squirrel, or rabbit, they grew up hunting with their grandfather so they share the same moral values and ethics that any redneck would, and now theyre getting criticized just because they can afford to go on an african safari. as for the article, the photos are far from disgusting, ive seen “disgusting”hunting photos and these have nothing on them, they are just a couple of guys posing with their trophys. and before i get any crap, yes i am a redneck and i am proud of it. Hollywood, jsut stay out of hunting completly and quit going to peta… theyre just a bucnch of morons who seem to value the life of an animal over that of a human… and that is the end of my rant
sincerly -a hunter

Please leave the hunting community alone. There are plenty of abused dogs and cats to be concerned about.

I think that they’re a couple of spoiled wankers who don’t have anything better to do with their time and have no idea of what anything is worth. Oh, and by the way way, taking down prey with a high powered rifle with a scope on it isn’t “hunting”. It’s jerking off. But what do you expect from 2 jizbots raised by a psychopath?
