The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) decided to mock Donald Trump Jr., an avid hunter, by creating a Halloween costume of him with blood dripping down his face as a leopard was posed behind him. But Trump Jr., as the hunter he is, had PETA in his crosshairs and promptly neutered them with a blast of his own.
PETA President Ingrid Newkirk gleefully stated, “There’s nothing more frightful than an entitled ghoul who gets his kicks from gunning down wild animals. This Halloween, PETA will help people poke fun at someone who believes that the world and its wildlife are here for him to take.”
According to The Hill, “The $169 ‘Donald Trump Jr. Hunting Halloween’ costume, for which PETA is currently accepting pre-orders on its website, includes a blood-stained camouflage jacket with a name tag that reads ‘Half-Cocked.’ A red cap and a leopard stuffed animal are also part of the get-up, although a listing indicates ‘prop gun not included.'”
According to PETA , the costume was “inspired by and is a twist on the trophy-hunting photo that showed the Trump brothers grinning over the body of a dead leopard.”
Trump Jr., 40, a member of the Boone and Crocket Club, has been photographed holding elephant and leopard trophies. He didn’t have much trouble bagging PETA:
