Trump’s Wildlife Killing Spree: Their Next Vacation?

Trump’s Wildlife Killing Spree: Their Next Vacation?


Anyone who viewed the horrifying photos of Donald Trump’s sons on a killing spree during an African safari will not soon forget the brutal and senseless way that these wealthy young men have chosen to spend their free time.

As head of the Harmony Fund international animal rescue charity, I often get field reports from my teammates in Africa who are faced with a constant battle with the lucrative safari business which caters to Americans who just can’t wait to shoot their first lion, gazelle or elephant.There’s a complete disconnect, an absolute apathy towards the suffering caused by the hunt or the orphans who lose their parents in the kill.And while Donald Trump Junior’s finest souvenir from his journey abroad is now the tail of an elephant, I’d like to contrast that against the way that others of us choose to spend our vacations.

If you, like I, need to clear your head after seeing the hard reality of the Trump’s travels, please enjoy this uplifting look at one very special vacation spot that caters to those who prefer a gentler form of tourism. It’s called the Rainsong Widlife Sanctuary and Retreat and is located on the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. And if the Trump men are reading this story, we invite you to travel here and see for yourself the extraordinary fulfillment that comes from an entirely different kind of relationship with the wild ones who make this world of ours one very beautiful place.

Come to Africa (Latin America, Asia, Europe, etc) and kill our animals and we put a bullet in your head. Problem solved. That's my advice to the protectors of wildlife!

As for the Trump kid.........I hope their next "vacation" is to prison.....they would never appreciate the Rainsong Wildlife Sanctuary.

Trump and his kid{s} have no compassion in their heartless and souless mind to appreciate wildlife instead of killing it.
