Donald Trump Jr. under fire for hunting an endangered sheep in Mongolia


Donald Trump Jr. loves hunting so much that he would never let something as trivial as the law get in his way.

While traveling in Mongolia this summer, the president's eldest son reportedly hunted and killed an endangered argali sheep. And according to a new report, Trump Jr. did not have a government permit to kill the sheep at the time. He only obtained a permit to hunt a few days after leaving the country — and some think he took advantage of his government connections to obtain the permit.

ProPublica broke the story this week, with a fascinating deep dive on Trump Jr.'s trip to Mongolia. In August, Trump Jr. and his 10-year-old son Donnie went on a seven-day hunting trip in Mongolia, a trip that he won at a 2015 National Rifle Association charity auction, according to his spokesperson. Both the U.S. government and the Mongolian government sent security services to protect Trump Jr. and Donnie during the trip. And in April, about four months before the August trip, Mongolian Ambassador Yondon Otgonbayar and Minister of Foreign Affairs Tsgot Damdin met with Trump Jr. at Mar-a-Lago, the Florida resort frequented by the Trump family, according to AZ Central.
