Storm over Trump sons’ Zim safari hunt

X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne posted a picture on Instagram of Donald Jnr (38) and Eric (32) proudly posing with a dead leopard after a hunting trip in Zimbabwe.


Sharon — who is a critic of the Republican US presidential candidate — added a message for her 2,4 million followers, saying: “Really? A great example of humanity, killing animals in Africa?! Disgusting.”


Other pictures emerged in 2012 of the Trump brothers standing next to animals they gunned down on two trips in 2010 and 2011 — including antelope, waterbuck, two buffalos, a great warthog and a civet cat.

Trump Snr defended his sons’ hobby of hunting on African kill safaris, saying: “My sons love to hunt. Eric is a hunter and I’d say he puts it on a par with golf, if not ahead of golf. They’re great marksman, great shots and love it. I like golf. I don’t do that.”

The Trumps would have been charged a hefty fee for every kill. The price list quotes £46 000 to hunt an elephant, up to £27 000 to kill a big cat and £6 500 for a crocodile.

Donald Jnr said: “Hunting isn’t about killing. Hunting and fishing makes you fall in love with the natural world.”

Last night, naturalist Chris Packham said: “They should feel utterly ashamed. And they’re not doing their dad any favours as a man campaigning to become president of the US.”
