Just a short while ago, Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., came under serious fire after photos of him on a hunting trip to Zimbabwe emerged online. Authorities are now investigating the legality of the safari.
As we also noted
at the time, the photos were snapped back in 2011, but it took them one year to emerge on the net.
Once they did, the outrage was almost unimaginable, especially since they showed DTJ posing next to a wide variety of large game he had killed.
He's already taken on a stand on the issue, writing on his Twitter page that he had no intention of apologizing for doing something he doesn't believe it was wrong.
Apparently, authorities are not convinced that this is the case, TMZ
Reports indicate that both Donald Trump's sons are under investigation to determine whether the highly controversial hunting trip was legal, in the sense that it got all the approvals it needed to proceed.
“The independent Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said that Trump's sons used a South African safari firm that is not registered in Zimbabwe during their 2011 hunting trip. They reportedly killed an elephant, an endangered leopard, a buffalo, a crocodile and other 'big game' animals,” the celebrity e-zine writes.
“The task force is currently investigating whether license and trophy fees were paid and if the South African firm had been cleared by Zimbabwe wildlife authorities to operate,” the same report notes.
As mentioned above, DTJ doesn't believe he did anything wrong: if anything, he's proud of what he's done, writing on his Twitter that he's a hunter who hunts and eats game, no shame in that.
“I can assure you it was not wasteful... the villagers were so happy for the meat which they don't often get to eat. Very grateful,” he explained, as we also reported
at the time.
“These are not endangered animals as an fyi,” DTJ added, trying to refute claims that he had slaughtered endangered species.
Elephants are for the people of Zimbabwe like deer are to us, he further explained.
