Secret Service spent more than $75,000 protecting Donald Trump Jr. while he went on a hunting trip to Mongolia in August, according to a government watchdog group that obtained new documents detailing the costs.

Trump Jr. went to Mongolia and hunted the argali sheep, a near-threatened species with long horns.

While in Mongolia, Trump Jr. also reportedly met with Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga.

“As a son of the president, Donald Trump Jr. is entitled to Secret Service protection and should be protected, but taxpayers deserve to know how much they are paying to facilitate his trophy hunting and interactions with major political donors and foreign leaders,” Citizens for Responsibility And Ethics (CREW) in Washington said in a statement.

The Secret Service is tasked with protecting the children of presidents.

A hunter’s plans to send a dead cougar home in his luggage on an airplane from Las Vegas hit a snag.

A TSA agent found the carcass just before 10 p.m. Monday at McCarran International Airport, the Associated Press reports

Agents held the man at the airport until they could confirm that a Utah State Fish and Game tag on the cougar was legitimate.

The man, whose identity has not been released, shipped the cougar home, but not on the airplane. TSA officials declined to say where the courage was headed.

Airport spokeswoman Melissa Nunnery said it’s not a crime to transport legally possessed carcasses, but she added that airlines have the authority to transport certain items.
