Troy Lee Gentry from country duo Montgomery Gentry has been accused of killing a tame black bear that federal officials say he tagged as killed in the wild.
According to YahhoNews, "Gentry, 39, of Franklin, Tenn., and Lee Marvin Greenly, 46, of Sandstone, appeared Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Raymond Erickson in connection with a sealed indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Minneapolis.
"Authorities allege that Gentry purchased the bear for about $4,650 from Greenly, a wildlife photographer and hunting guide, then killed it with a bow and arrow in an enclosed pen on Greenly's property in October 2004.
"The government alleges that Gentry and Greenly tagged the bear, named Cubby, with a Minnesota hunting license and registered the animal with the state Department of Natural Resources as a wild kill."
Gentry even videotaped the bear's death was, though the Feds allege he later edited it so he appeared to shoot the animal in a "fair chase" hunting situation.
If convicted, these two boobs could face up to five years in federal prison and a $20,000 fine.
Killing an innocent bear? A bear named Cubby?!? You sick cowardly bastard! I hope a bear breaks into your home and eats you alive, poops out your remains and then eats you again!
