Donald Trump - Trump To Talk To Sons About Hunting Scandal

Property tycoon and reality TV star Donald Trump insists he'll be talking to his sons about a new family scandal that has come about after they were photographed hunting and killing big game in Africa.
Trump admits he's not a hunter himself and has no wish to see controversial photos of son Donald Jr. posing with slain buffalo and slaughtered elephants during a 2011 safari trip in Zimbabwe, which have surfaced online.
One of the Hunting Legends shots features Donald Jr. holding the severed tail of an elephant.
The photos have angered animal rights activists back home in the U.S., with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals officials telling the New York Daily News, "Like all animals, elephants, buffalo, and crocodiles deserve better than to be killed and hacked apart for two young millionaires' grisly photo opportunity."
Donald and his brother Eric have defended themselves in a statement that reads, "We are both avid outdoorsmen and were brought up hunting and fishing with our grandfather who taught us that nothing should ever be taken for granted or wasted."
And they have revealed that they hunted in "accordance with local laws and regulations," donating all the meat to "local villagers who were incredibly grateful".
But that might not be the end of it - dad wants a word with his sons.
Donald Sr. tells Access Hollywood, "I've never liked it (hunting). I've never liked that they like it... I'm gonna talk to them about it. I'm not a fan of the whole situation."
