(CBS News) Donald Trump’s sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric, are facing harsh criticism after photos from an African safari they went on last year surfaced. The photos showed the two posing with various animals they had hunted and killed, including an elephant.
“If the young Trumps are looking for a thrill, perhaps they should consider skydiving, bungee jumping, or even following their anti-hunting father’s footsteps and taking down competing businesses – not wild animals,” animal rights group PETA said in a statement to E! News.
So, what did Trump’s sons have to say for themselves?
“We have the utmost respect for nature and have always hunted in accordance with local laws and regulations. In addition, all meat was donated to local villagers who were incredibly grateful. We love traveling and being in the woods – at the end of the day, we are outdoorsmen at heart,” they said in a joint statement to E!.
