Photos of Trump's millionaire sons posing with dead the carcasses of wild animals they shot while on a big game hunt in Africa are being shared once again on social media.

The pictures, which were taken in 2010, show Donald Trump's eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump posing with "trophy" game in Zimbabwe.

Recently people have been commenting on their disgust at the photos.

The photos first resurfaced in 2015, after being shared by actress Mia Farrow after the sad death of Cecil the Lion.

While campaigning, Donald Trump defended his sons saying they "love to hunt".

My sons love to hunt. They are members of the NRA, very proudly. I am a big believer in the Second Amendment.

But my sons are hunters, Eric is a hunter and I would say he puts it on a par with golf, if not ahead of golf.

My other son, Don, is a hunter. They're great marksman, great shots, they love it.


In the pictures, the brothers - who both work as trustees for their Father -  pose with a dead leopard, the tail of an elephant, and beside beside a 12'8' crocodile hanging from a noose.

Donald Trump Jr. has spoken in exhaustive detail about his passion for hunting, saying he spent "almost every weekend" hunting as a child.

Hunting Legends, the company that organised the trip and posted the photos of the First Sons, have pointed out that the hunt was "completely legal".
