Their dad likes shooting from the lip, but the Trump kids prefer shooting wild animals with guns.

Pictures of Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, the two adult sons of bombastic 2016 candidate Donald Trump, shooting wild animals in Africa have resurfaced, sparking unflattering comparisons of the mogul’s heirs to lion-killer Walter Palmer.

The Trump brothers went on a 2011 hunting trip in Zimbabwe, where they snapped photos of themselves with enormous dead animals they took down.

In one photo, Donald Trump Jr., known to many as “Donnie,” is seen toting a rifle and flashing a huge grin while seated next to a dead buffalo he had just killed. In another picture, Eric Trump is seen sitting atop his fresh kill, another buffalo, smiling as the dead animal lies still on the ground.

  1. This is why I have been outraged that a blog which purports to be for
    “Animal Rights” is supporting Trump’s ideologies, behaviors, and features this monster on the site, continuously, defending his actions including excusingTTrump’s comments about women’s rights and the Supreme Court appointees, if he gets elected. It also has been stated on this website, that Trump’s election would “help animal rights.” I will not mention by name this site, but I am sure there are others who are aware of this site. At first, I was glad to see this site, as it purports to be for animals. After some months visiting this site, I am now convinced that it has nothing with helping tanimals, and if fact, is doing far more harm to them, by continuing to feature this Trump maniac, and excusing, even dismissing his actions, which are very dangerous to this planet and the animals. Thanks for listening.

    • I like to follow blogs and publications of animal & wildlife issues, and I’m aware of the blog referenced above, which will again go without mention. We are up against powerful forces and special interests aimed at undermining everything we, who value and fight for wild nature, hold dear. We should be alert to the reality that covert operations are always under way to sow discord and division among the followers of any movement, particularly ours. We, as informed advocates for the environment and its biological diversity, need to stand united against the insanity of Donald Trump and his sons. Of course we don’t have to do anything at all, but any lack of solidarity on our part is a measure of the other side winning, and they are winning fast.

  2. Good! I was hoping the pictures would bring up memories of Dr. Palmer and the other trophy hunters we’re seen and been disgusted with. I guess so far their behavior has just been ugly but not illegal. If they break the law, I hope they can’t buy their way out of it! On the other hand, just having a lot of these pictures out there in Cyberspace can’t help them. Maybe you could turn this into a serial feature for a while???

  3. There are so many adjectives that can describe the Trump boys’ deranged behavior toward animals who just simply exist in their habitat. My reaction to these photos is distressing, angry and many more. They do not represent me or many in America. Incidentally, Donnie must have an aversion to blood, as his knife is clean as he holds the elephant’s tail. So then who really took the tail of the dead elephant and who really killed her? What a frauds the Trumps are! Secondly, I believe Eric is holding a leopard (not a cheetah) who are so elusive and can only be seen by paid guides taking them to where these animals exist. This is so very wrong. The Trump family should be made to pay for wildlife refuges for these animals as penalty.

  4. Gah, these two pampered brats look like deranged grinning killers who ought to be in prison!

    Anyway, about this election, this made me smile. When I heard about the protests by Bernie supporters and the boos and hisses, I was a little concerned. But as new information comes to light, I’m glad – it’s about the only thing worth paying attention to. Thanks to them:

    • Unfortunately, those in the armed forces were deer hunters first – they have already taken the first step of being able to kill a live being. Secondly, the Trump boys like killing animals for fun, but these barbaric actions are well supported by paid guides who find the animals, who set up the kill and probably do the killing. The Trump boys just grin for pics with their dead trophies and take all the credit. Reminds me of “The Donald” taking credit for “writing” his book, The Art of the Deal, and telling his audience they should elect a president who writes business books. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/07/25/donald-trumps-ghostwriter-tells-all

      The above link is on our website.

      The other night, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnel featured a segment on the “Spoiled Trump Brats,” as he so aptly described the. He showed the oldest sons on their Trophy hunts, one with the once-living big cat, with Lawrence calling them “Animal Killers.” This was most likely seen by millions of viewers.

      The daughters spawned by this maniac are not much better, I’m afraid, as there have been photos of them flaunting their fur coats. None of this “kids” have been raised with compassion or kindness, not with a father like Donald Trump.

  5. If people on this blog want to learn more about the spoiled rich daughters (& now, grand kids) take a look at the fur being warn by the daughters:

    There are not redeeming qualities in a “family” milieu which is filthy rich, and uses a substantial portion of the world’ precious resources, including innocent animals for display on their bodies, for the mouths, and for their entertainment. When I use the term “filthy” I mean it literally and figuratively. One certainly feels like taking a bath after looking at them all.

    Just think: 5 kids, and now ( I have read), 8 grandchildren, already. Talk about overpopulation along with over consumption??
    Shameful.
