Donald Trump Jr. granted permission to shoot grizzly bears in Alaska

“Who is hoping a bear gets lucky?” one person asked on Twitter.

According to Reuters, President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was granted the right to “hunt a grizzly bear” in northwestern Alaska.

“The son of U.S. President Donald Trump was one of three people who applied for 27 spots for non-resident hunters targeting grizzlies in a designated region of northwestern Alaska’s Seward Peninsula, said Eddie Grasser, the wildlife conservation director for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game,” Reuters’ Yereth Rosen reports.

“The state conducts periodic drawings for permits to hunt bears, caribou, moose and other animals in various regions,” the report continued. “Winners are chosen by a lottery, and there are typically many more applications than hunting tags awarded.”
