Washington DC - Barely a year after the brutal killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe, Donald Trump's sons caused a social media storm after Fear Factor judge Sharon Osbourne posted photographs on Instagram of them standing next to a dead animal in a Safari expedition in Zimbabwe.
The pictures of the Trump brothers were posted by Osbourne with the captioned "Really? A great example of Humanity, killing animals in Africa?! Disgusting."
According to NewsDay, other pictures emerged in 2012 of the Trump brothers standing next to animals they had gunned down on two trips in 2010 and 2011 — including antelope, waterbuck, two buffalo, a great warthog and a civet cat.
But, according to the Daily Record, Trump defended his sons hunting exhibitions, saying that his son Eric loved hunting and both sons were great marksmen.
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, the report stated.
