Donald Trump's Sons Kill Giant African Animals

The blogosphere has been all a-flutter today about photographs of Eric and Donald Trump Jr. that surfaced on an African hunting website showing the brothers in a Lion King-themed nightmare: big guns, dead Zimbabwean animals all over the place, and one elephant tail, sans elephant.

It shouldn't be hard to find most of them, but the Daily Mail looks like it has a collection of the best ones.

Donald the Younger has been responding to critics on Twitter for hours, saying that the elephant-tail thing was part of an African custom, "but hey assume what you want I don't care."

He also tweeted that the elephant meat "fed a village for a month."

But Hollywood Life reports that it got an exclusive exclusive with a PETA spokesperson, who spoke to them exclusively and made a good point:
"Like all animals, elephants, buffalo, and crocodiles deserve better than to be killed and hacked apart for two young millionaires' grisly photo opportunity," a spokesperson from PETA exclusively tells us exclusively. "If the young Trumps are looking for a thrill, perhaps they should consider skydiving, bungee jumping, or even following in their anti-hunting father's footsteps and taking down competing businesses -- not wild animals. If the Trumps want to help villagers, they have plenty of resources at their disposal."
