United States.- An Argali sheep, an endangered species, was the victim of the shooting of a member of the family of US President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump Jr, eldest son of the president, hunted in Mongolia a specimen of argali sheep (ovis ammon, scientific name), a species native to Asia and which is considered endangered in the Red List of the International Union for the Conservation of the Nature
The species has declined due to activities such as mining, agriculture, invasive species, and changing temperatures.RELATED
Will it be sanctioned?
Although there are a number of international laws for the protection of these animals, Donald Trump Jr. may have obtained a permit that allowed him to kill the sheep.
