Confused by the title? Let me explain. According to several Chicago news stations, when animal lover Georgia Lee Dvorak died on December 24th at the age of 76, she left behind her a will (drawn up 24 years ago) which ordered for most of her estate, valued at $1.4 million, to be divided out among anti-cruelty organizations like the Humane Society and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, but also included a clause ordering any cats she owned at the time of her death to be euthanized “in a painless, peaceful manner”, regardless of their health.

I cannot begin to tell you how infuriated I am by this story. Apparently, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump [along with many other wealthy individuals] have been traveling to Africa to hunt pretty much anything that moves. Their tour company, Hunting Legends, recently decided to brag about the pair and their victims on their Web site, complete with gruesome photographs.
Based on the photos, it seems as if the Trump boys are only a small part of the group that makes me sick to my stomach! The images show the Trumps proudly holding a dead leopard, smiling, and holding a [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve stared at the screen for so long, thinking of how I’m going to start this article. Granted it’s so unimaginable that it would be hard to put into words, I have to try anyway, because people need to know.

According to WorldWildLife.org, the poachers have been arriving on horseback [...]
