"There's nothing more frightful than an entitled ghoul who gets his kicks from gunning down wild animals," PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a Thursday statement.

"This Halloween, PETA will help people poke fun at someone who believes that the world and its wildlife are here for him to take,” Newkirk said.

The $169 “Donald Trump Jr. Hunting Halloween” costume, for which PETA is currently accepting pre-orders on its website, includes a blood-stained camouflage jacket with a name tag that reads “Half-Cocked.” A red cap and a leopard stuffed animal are also part of the get-up, although a listing indicates “prop gun not included.”

PETA says the costume was “inspired by and is a twist on the trophy-hunting photo that showed the Trump brothers grinning over the body of a dead leopard.”

PETA says all profits from costume sales will go to support its work.
