Donald Trump Jr. is an avid hunter, as is his brother Eric Trump. Trump Jr. recently auctioned off a “dream hunt,” featuring him and his son. The hunt will take place in Alaska. Jeff Flocken, President of Humane Society International said of the hunt, “Advertised as a ‘dream hunt,’ this hunting trip will be nothing but a nightmare for the Sitka black-tailed deer and sea ducks who find themselves in the gun sights of Donald Trump Jr. and whomever purchases this sick thrill.”
