Nothing says respect Earth Day like killing innocent beings for fun. The sociopaths among us.
Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of the President of the United States of America, spent Earth Day on Saturday shooting bullets at prairie dogs, which is listed as a "species of concern" for endangerment.
Trump Jr. spent the weekend in Montana with Republican candidate for the U.S. House Greg Gianforte, who said of the trip: "As good Montanans, we want to show good hospitality to people. What can be more fun than to spend an afternoon shooting the little rodents."
It is not illegal to hunt prairie dogs, but it's also not exactly ethical, the Humane Society told ABC Fox Montana. Besides, just look at how adorable these little critters are.
Now is also an especially inopportune time to hunt prairie dogs, as they are currently in the middle of their breeding season.
"For prairie dogs, March through June is peak breeding season, which means pregnant, adult females will also be at risk. People do not hunt these animals for food or any legitimate wildlife management purposes," said Lindsey Sterling Krank, director of the Humane Society's Prairie Dog Coalition in a press release.
In sum, hunting prairie dogs hurts the environment and makes the world a sadder place. Sounds like the perfect hobby for a Trump.
