Donald Trump Jr granted permit to hunt Alaska grizzly bear

Source: Guardian

The president’s son is a keen hunter who has enjoyed several expeditions in Alaska and Canada

Reuters in Anchorage
Sat 22 Feb 2020 02.30 EST

Donald Trump Jr has been granted the right to hunt a grizzly bear in north-western Alaska near the Bering Sea town of Nome, a state official says.

The son of US president Donald Trump was one of three people who applied for 27 spots for non-resident hunters targeting grizzlies in a designated region of north-western Alaska’s Seward Peninsula, said Eddie Grasser, the wildlife conservation director for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

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

“We get thousands of applications,” Grasser said on Friday. Whether anyone wins came down to “pure chance, luck of the draw”.
