Pictures: Donald Trump's Sons Hunt African Animals, Pose With Carcasses

| by Michael Allen

Donald Trump's adult sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump, Jr., are under fire for recent photos of their big game hunt in Africa last year.

Eric and Donald Jr., who are both featured on Trump's NBC reality show 'Celebrity Apprentice,' went on a big game hunting adventure in Zimbabwe.

The controversial photos show the Trump sons posing with their trophy kills, including an elephant's tail.

Donald Trump offered this defense of his boys: "My sons love hunting. They're both hunters and they've become good at it. I know that anything they did was 100% OK in terms of the hunting community."

Howver, Jack Carone of Defense of Animals, said: "Would any intelligent person feel moved to murder a magnificent elephant, then further insult and desecrate by hacking off his/her tail as an additional gesture of dominance?"

"Privilege has clearly not bought them the sensitivity or wisdom needed to view the world as anything but their personal playground, including the imagined entitlement to end the lives of sensitive and social animals for mere amusement."
