Donald Trump Jr. has been awarded an out-of-state permit from Alaska to hunt and kill a grizzly bear this year making him one of only three people who applied for such a permit, Reuters reported Saturday.
“The son of U.S. President Donald Trump was one of three people who applied for 27 spots for non-resident hunters targeting grizzlies in a designated region of northwestern Alaska’s Seward Peninsula, said Eddie Grasser, the wildlife conservation director for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. “We get thousands of applications” and that it comes down to “pure chance, luck of the draw,” he added, according to the report.
“Few people are actually interested in killing a grizzly bear,” Grasser said. Most of those applications are for hunting caribou, moose and other animals throughout the state.
Trump Jr. has been widely criticized for hunting endangered and vulnerable trophy animals, including the Mongolian mountain sheep, or argali, and an African elephant. But that is not stopping the president’s son from continuing his murderous campaign against innocent animals.
