As furor over American dentist Walter Palmer's killing of a beloved lion called Cecil in Zimbabwe continues to unfold, photos of presidential candidate Donald Trump’s children shooting wild animals have resurfaced.

In 2011, Trump’s sons Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., also known as Donnie, went on a hunting trip to Zimbabwe and documented their many kills, NY Daily News reported.

Both Donnie and Eric apparently managed to gun down some wild buffalo and the brothers were photographed together holding a dead cheetah. In a separate image, Donnie is seen holding a detached elephant’s tail in one hand and gripping a knife with the other.

When the images were initially leaked in 2012, the Trump boys were unapologetic, Mother Jones reported.

"In some parts [it's] over populated. Bottom line with out hunters $ there wouldn't be much left of [Africa]. Eco is nice but no $," Donnie tweeted at the time.

Donald Trump Sr. apparently doesn’t hunt.

“My sons love hunting. They’re hunters and they’ve become good at it,” Trump told TMZ in 2012. “I am not a believer in hunting and I’m surprised they like it.”
