'Endangering Endangered Species Seems to Be the Family Hobby': Trump Jr. Denounced for Killing Rare Sheep in Mongolia

Donald Trump Jr. over the summer killed an endangered Mongolian Argali sheep, continuing the tradition he shares with his brother Eric of going to other countries and killing their rare wildlife, ProPublica reported Wednesday.

Trump Jr., son of U.S. President Donald Trump, was days later retroactively given permission for killing the animal.

Bill McKibben, co-founder of climate advocacy group 350.org, tweeted that Trump Jr. was following his family’s example.

“Further endangering endangered species seems to be the family hobby,” McKibben said, a reference to how the president has systematically slashed species protections in the U.S.

According to ProPublica, the timing of the permit’s issuance was a bit suspect:

Animal rights activist Ari Solomon said on Twitter that Trump Jr.’s behavior was par for the course.

“While his father is trying to gut the Endangered Species Act, he’s out killing endangered animals,” said Solomon. “This family is trash.”
