Zimbabwe Officials Defend Trump Brothers' Hunt

By now, you've probably heard all the hoopla over Donald Trump's sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, and the photos of their 2010 African safari, which showed the brothers posing next to a dead leopard, cape buffalo, crocodile, elephant and others.

What you might not know is how The Junior Donald contacted our friends over at Petersen's Hunting, who relayed a report from The Associated Press, which made allusions to a Zimbabwe task force launching an investigation into the hunt, citing allegations that it was conducted illegally.

Donald Trump Jr. forwarded over a letter from the director-general of the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, Vitallis Chadenga, which in a nutshell said there was no "official investigation," that protocol was followed on the hunt and that no part of the hunt was illegal.

"The only investigation which should occur is that of the "anti-hunting" organizations who are peddling untruths falsely represented as facts," Chadenga wrote, adding that hunting is an integral part of the Zimbabwe economy, and a good chunk of the money goes toward wildlife preservation in Zimbabwe.
