Trump sons’ deadly killing spree

March 16th, 2012 by Nicole Meyer

Last year it was Bob Parsons, head of the Internet domain hosting company Go Daddy, who was pictured with his grisly trophy – a dead elephant he slaughtered in Zimbabwe. (Parsons has since stepped down as CEO of the company.) This time it’s Donald Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald, Jr.

Public reaction was swift and IDA’s condemnation of the needless killings appeared in articles by TMZ and the Hollywood Gossip.

Trump, Sr., responded to his sons’ brainless exploits, stating that while he doesn’t believe in hunting his sons had become good at it and that he was sure their actions were “100% OK in terms of the hunting community.”

In fact, Trump’s sons were hunting in Zimbabwe, a highly troubled country where it is suspected that wildlife numbers are greatly exaggerated. For example, in 2009 the Zimbabwe Parks Management Authority estimated that 100,000 elephants existed in the country, however, experts say that a proper audit has not been conducted there in years; they estimate the elephant population at only 35,000 to 40,000.

Donald, Jr., has since lashed out at his critics claiming, as did Parsons, that killing threatened species helps conservation and local people. IDA suggests that if the Trump brothers and their friends had any real interest in conservation, they would open their overflowing pockets and contribute to the efforts of real conservation groups working to help people and the wildlife around them.

Elephants are among the world’s most intelligent, sensitive and social animals. Research suggests that both males and females grieve for lost relatives and associates, remembering the deaths over long periods. They are also under increasing pressure due to poaching, habitat loss and human-elephant conflict.

If you are as outraged as we are about these senseless killings, please donate to IDA’s Elephant Protection Fund and help support our work for elephants around the world.

    These senseless acts show exactly what kind of people the Trumps are. Obviously they don’t care about endangered species, our environment, or anything else but themselves and what big shots they ‘think’ they are. Lifestyles of the rich and famous, huh? Poor excuses for humans they are.

  54. June 07, 2012 at 8:08 pm, Nancy said:

    Dear Donald Jr.: how does “killing threatened species helps conservation and local people”? That is utterly untrue and ridiculous, for so many reasons I cannot even begin to enumerate.

    I do not know if I am more outraged by this or heartsick. He looks so proud of himself holding that beautiful elephant tail, in a gesture of conquest. Well, Mr. Trump Jr… you did not ‘win’ anything but the disgust and disdain of millions of people. This is such a cowardly act. If you were my son, I would be utterly disgusted with you.

  56. June 07, 2012 at 5:35 pm, Gail JoannThey will never make anything of their lives said:

    I blame Donald Trump for the wrongdoing of his spineless sons. Non of them ever learned to respect and love animals. His boys should be made to volunteer in Iraq or Afghanistan where they could play real MEN and not shoot defenseless elephants, but fight for their lives and shoot real people who can and will shoot back. They will never make anything of themselves except spoiled brats, who don’t know the real world.

    So much money – so little soul. What is wrong with these people? Is it a God complex? We can hire, fire, change lives for the better and with their family wealth, extinguish lives as well. WHY?? Is all that I can ask… The idiot from Go Daddy apparently learned that it wasn’t a show of manhood. And I am hoping – that while he was holding that tail from the innocent, kind, family oriented and intelligent animal — that maybe he contracted some foreign skin rot disease from the wilds of Africa..
    Also – wondering if on their private jet flying over starving and dying babies and people if they dropped a loaf of bread or some champagne for those on the ground.
    I thought MAYBE with the power that they have as a family they would use it to change the world for the better…

    I am sorry to see this display of pride . . . pride for what?? for killing innocent and beautiful animals that deserve to live and thrive in their habitat!!!

    With all the money they have, they could be using their influence in setting a good example of how important it is to respect animal wildlife, lobby for their rights, and donate accordingly. Instead, they choose to be the spoiled rich assholes that everyone suspected that they are…they should hang their heads in shame. Real brave…shooting innocent and defenseless animals who are just trying to survive.
    These losers would never join the real military…they’d crap their pants and call for daddy if anyone shot back at them.

Killing these magnificent animals for “sport” is beyond revolting, but what is worse, Don Jr., is taking and exhibiting your picture with an elephant’s tail in one hand, a huge knife (gag) in the other and a triumphant smirk on your face. …
