Georgina Bloomberg, the daughter of billionaire Michael Bloomberg, is an animal rights activist who has called her own father's record on animal welfare a 'failure'. But Georgina is now dating a hunting enthusiast - raising eyebrows among animal lovers in New York City.

Carlos Arruza Jr, who often posts photos on social media of wild boars, turkeys and deer he's killed on hunting trips, accompanied Georgina to a Humane Society gala in November, where she received an award for her 'tireless work to protect all animals'. 

Insiders at the Humane Society, along with members of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, have not been happy about the matchup, Page Six reported.

Georgina told People in February 2016: 'Growing up, I always considered myself an animal lover and then I got to the age that I realized just sort of loving animals and having them in my life wasn’t really enough. I needed to be doing something really active to help them.'

She has fought against puppy mills, brought stray dogs from Puerto Rico back to the US for adoption, and called for the ban on horse-drawn carriages in New York City. 

Georgina even criticized the city's Animal Care & Controls shelter - a nonprofit group which her father's office commissioned to run New York's animal shelter system - calling it a 'failure' in 2013.

She's also expressed hope in getting Donald Trump's administration on board with animal causes, citing Eric Trump's wife Lara as a 'good friend'.

'She does a lot of dog rescue so I’m sort of counting on her to get some animal causes into the White House,' she said at during a Humane Society benefit.

 Georgina posted a photo of her awards from the Animal Care Center of New York, writing: 'One of the proudest days of my life and best awards I've ever received'

But Georgina's enthusiasm for animal rights doesn't seem to inhibit her relationship with Arruza.

She posted photos on Wednesday, writing: 'Happy Birthday to the best man Jasper and I have both ever known.'

Georgina, who is a professional equestrian, has a three-year-old son named Jasper with Argentine horseman Ramiro Quintana.

 

Another New Year's Eve photo shows the two of them kissing, with Arruza writing in the caption: 'I have a lot for which I'm thankful and plenty of reasons to celebrate the start of 2017, but this gorgeous one is icing on the cake!'

He also considered himself 'thankful' and 'blessed' to be able to take his godsons on a hunting trip, during which they shot a wild boar.

Other photos show Arruza's interest in rifles, along with spear fishing and hunting with a bow and arrow.
