Harare, Zimbabwe - Zimbabwean conservationists say they are investigating the legality of a hunting spree in the country by the heirs to U.S. magnate Donald Trump's fortune.

The independent Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said Friday that Trump's sons Donald Jr. and Eric killed an elephant, an endangered leopard and other “big game” animals on a 2011 trip arranged by a South African safari firm that is not registered in Zimbabwe.

Photographs of the brothers - one holding an elephant's tail in one hand and a knife in the other - have been were withdrawn from at least one website after a flurry of protests.

Animal protection groups were outraged how “rich people” had boasted about their “shocking and unethical” behavior, the trust said. - Sapa-AP
